Lorena (Rena to her friends and family) devoted her life to raising her eight children on the family farm in Scotch Ridge, New Brunswick.
Rena loved to cook and prepare meals and special desserts for her family and friends. She also loved to knit and would happily and patiently pass down her knowledge and skills to any of her family that asked.
Rena loved flowers and the beauty and joy that they brought her, her favorite being Peonies.
She will be sadly missed and fondly remembered by all who were fortunate enough to know her.
Rena and her family would like to thank Daniel and Erica along with the rest of the staff at Extramural Hospital, St. Stephen, for their support throughout this process.
By Rena’s request, there will be no visitation. A small, family service will take place at a later date.
Donations in Rena’s memory can be made to the Charlotte County Cancer Society or a charity of one’s choice.
