I was just called about Rena’s passing, I loved her so very much, I am devastated to hear of her passing and not knowing to be able to attend her services. I worked with her at Knapheide, she was absolutely the sweetest person, so fun loving and made me smile and laugh every time I was around her, I called her “Your Highness” as a joke, but the truth was, she was royalty as a friend, she was such a support for me when I became disabled, I truly treasured our friendship! I will miss her so very much, Rest In Peace Your Highness Rena! 👑❤️

To Rena's family,
I'm so sorry for your loss and keeping you in prayer during this difficult time. Rena and I worked together at Gardner Denver and shared many laughs while typing on those telex machines! I'll always remember her smile and our friendship. May good memories comfort you and bring you peace.

To the Shelly and Doug and remaining family of one of my dearest friends from Gardner Denver, you have my sincerest sympathy. I loved Rena so.... When I worried about her shortly after her retirement from from Knapheide, she assured me, "Pam, I am okay." Even though her recent passing saddens are hearts in that we will be miss her in person, I have to believe in my heart that where Rena's spirit is now, she is surely more than just "okay." RIP my dear friend...
