One of her favorite sayings was, “Christmas is not just in December, everyday is like Christmas because it’s a Celebration and a Gift from God”! Our Family Home that our Parents bought on Patterson Street when they moved from Tennessee to Lockland, Ohio will never be the same without Rennia there, just like it wasn’t the same when we lost our Parents, however it’s our old Homeplace that we cherish. Rennia planted an Apple tree out front and she loved taking care of it and watching it grow to bear fruit so if you ever pass by, please take an Apple and think of her. She never wanted anyone to mourn her passing but to Celebrate her Life and God has her now, Resting in Peace. God Bless her and she’ll be truly missed by all who knew her.
