(nee Hanes)

Apr. 19, 1963 – Oct. 3, 2016

Loving wife, mother, Baba, Ernie, sister, and friend. Renee passed away peacefully, following a battle with esophageal cancer, on October 3, 2016 at Moog & Friends Hospice with family by her side. Renee was a generous person to the full extent of the word. Her passion was her family. She loved her children and grandchildren and welcomed many others into her home. She was a true friend, loyal wife, dedicated mother, and devoted grandparent. She will be deeply missed by many. Renee is survived by her loving family: husband John, son Daryl (Erin), daughter Emily (Greg), grandchildren Kaylee, Cohen, Avalon, Bellamy, and Garrett, as well as many more extended family and friends. An open house celebration of life will be held at her family home in Penticton on October 22, 2016 from 2:00 – 5:00 p.m. In lieu of flowers, please make a charitable donation to S.O.W.I.N.S. Many thanks to her care team at Moog & Friends Hospice and to those who supported Renee through her battle.

Forever in our hearts.
