July 16, 1934 - April 28, 2023
In Loving Memory ~
Coreen Renz, aged 88, passed away peacefully in her sleep at Durand Manor on Friday, April 28, 2023. Coreen was born July 16, 1934, in Abbey, Saskatchewan, the youngest girl of 14 children, 7 boys and 7 girls.
Her parents, Michael and Barbara Greenstein immigrated from Odessa, Russia to Canada with their families. Coreen's family was very happy and close - she was the last surviving member of her large family.
Coreen was predeceased by her husband August (Gus) Renz; her oldest son, Dennis and her youngest son, Rodney; and her son-in-law, Trevor Uhrich. She was also predeceased by her friend and companion of more than 30 years, Jack Leslie.
Coreen is survived by her daughter, Berneice Uhrich; grandsons, Troy (Terri) and Everett Uhrich; great-granddaughters, Sidney (Tanner) and Hailey Uhrich, all of Golden, B.C.
A memorial service was held for Coreen from the Trinity Lutheran Church, Golden, B.C., on Friday, May 5, 2023, with the interment of her cremated remains in the Golden Community Cemetery.
Coreen's family would like to thank the board at Abbeyfield House for their care and support when Coreen was a resident. We also thank Doctors Clare and Cunnes and the nurses at Golden Hospital for their care. And Janice LaRoy and the staff at Durand Manor; Kevin Bolen, of Hindman Bowers Funeral Home; and all our friends and neighbours for their caring thoughts, flowers, and food.
The care and thoughtfulness for Coreen will always be remembered.
