Special thank you to Dr. Spadafora and Natalie Kovacevich for their care and compassion. Memorial Contributions greatly appreciated to the Sault Area Hospital Cancer Clinic.

Renée made it obvious how proud she was of her 2 boys and thankfully she got to be there for their graduations.  It brought her great happiness to attend all of their sporting events, especially hockey, she was a TRUE hockey mom.

Renée was the happiest when surrounded by all of her family at BBQ’s, campfires or just hanging out. Renée was never far from her sidekick CoCo, she enjoyed her walks with CoCo at the Soo Locks, the boardwalk and Birchwood Park.
