Rene loved helping others and volunteered with Special Needs Assistance with various Red Deer public schools, teaching English to immigrants, and volunteered with the Cancer Center.
Rene was an avid bridge player and surrounded herself with a huge circle of friends for many years. She loved to entertain.
