My condolences to all of Renate's family. She was a lovely friendly woman I knew for 20 years while living in the same building until I moved out of ON. I treasure my memories of her.

Your mother was so inspirational and joyous when we worked together on the bulletin at the North Bay Golden Age Club. I loved hearing and reading her stories. Renate was a dear soul and I will never forget her. God Bless you all!

So very sorry to hear of Renata's passing. My husband & I had many wonderful talks with your Mom. We met when my sister Ella invited us for dinner and Renata was invited to share with us. May all the beautiful memories comfort you at this time & always.

Isobel & Rolph
