She grew up in Rugby, ND, attending the Little Flower Catholic grade school and graduating from Rugby High School. Renee moved with her family from Rugby to Minot, ND, Milbank, SD, and Longmount, CO, before coming to Worthington. Before becoming ill, Renee worked at Clothes Encounters, Sarah’s, and Penney’s in the clothing departments.
