It is with great sadness and immeasurable gratitude that we celebrate her remarkable life and passing.  The spirit and love that flowed through Renee will be felt by all who knew her.

Most of her life was spent between the cities of New Orleans and Franklinton, Louisiana. She was certified as a chaplain and also held two Masters degrees: one in psychology and counseling,  and one in divinity.
