My grandmother was a fun loving beautiful person. She loved her 5 children dearly. She had 4 grandchildren, 3 great grandchildren and 2 great great grandchildren. I will miss her so much. She was thread that kept our family stitched together. I love you GG

I was never fortunate enough to meet Mrs. Irene Wabeke, but I know the warm and caring daughter she raised. Mothers tend to be reflected in their daughters, and Angie’s reflection of Irene “Renee” let the world know how wonderful she was. Find solace in knowing that she is resting in the arms of our Lord.

The natural course of our life is that we as children bury our parents. 81 years of life, so many wonderful memories with family and friends. I loved Renee from the first time I met her, about 35 years ago. I know one thing for sure and that is that Renee loved each of her children with her whole heart, each of her grandchildren with her whole heart and the great and great-great were the extra frosting on her cake of life. You will always have Renee with you everyday. She will watch over you as my dad watches over me. I love all of you. I cry with you over her death. Be good to each other, I know your mom would say that you kids have to “carry on”. Peace and love to all.
