    Awwwww, what a wonderful person Rene was. She would always go out of her way to help people at Pipp. She was by far the best cook there and the friendliest person. Always good for a laugh. She will be missed. RIP Rene

  5. G. William Gregg DVM says:

    I have known Rene for 33 years. She was among my first friends and clients when Jeannie and I moved here from West Virginia. It wasn’t long before I found out she made the best pies ever and she found out that I held pie in highest regard as the one true dessert from heaven. Rene was a true angel who graced a lot of souls during her earthly stay with her gentle heart and genuine warmth of friendship.
    My sorrow and empathy to family and friends but this angel has been called to the highest of thrones to serve her love (and pie) to all our passed loved ones. I love you Rene and will miss you.
