    My sympathy to Susie, Ricky, and families. I knew Mary Renaud all my life, from back in the East Street days to, more recently, Rene Foran's birthday parties. She was a great friend of my parents. When she used to call my mother on the phone, I never had to guess who my mother was talking to because my mother was laughing loudly from the beginning of the conversation right to the end. She was full of fun and full of life. I was sad to hear of her passing. She will be missed by so many.

  • Dorothy & Harold Rogers

    Rick, Sue and your families
    Mary was a special lady. We will miss seeing her on her front porch when we visit Margaret. She always had her phone with her in case she might miss a call. Everyone who knew her called her "friend". She loved her family immensely and was very proud of all her grand children. She had a sense of humor that didn't stop and liked to play pranks on her friends. I don't think I ever saw her without a smile on her face. Our deepest sympathy on the loss of your mother.

  • Carol Preston

    Auntie Marie was a strong and caring woman. She was a close friend of my grand-mére. She always came to visit and always called to check up on us. I have many fond memories of her throughout my childhood. She cared deeply for her family, always speaking very highly of them.
    My sincere condolences, may she rest in peace with the Lord.
