  1. No matter how long someone is in your life, their departure can still feel too soon. Technically speaking Renee Schallert was my step-grandmother, a distinction that only ever mattered when it came to explaining to others why I had three grandmas. To me, she was simply Grandma Renee. A strong woman who spoke with a confidence and directness I’ve come to realize is rare. Someone for whom being strict and being kind were not mutually exclusive. Someone for whom even when she was reminding me of my manners I still knew loved me. She read mysteries and thrillers and was always willing to share and trade a good book. She wore a distinctive perfume and enjoyed playing cards. She collected plates. She reminded me the importance of writing on the back of photos. She brought out the talkative side of my husband in a way that only very few people can. And, she was tough. She survived Emphysema for years, even getting sick, even getting covid. There was a strength to her that made it seem she could survive anything. Yet, we’re all only human in the end. She had a long life, a big family. She will be remembered, and she will be missed. And though she’s gone, in the phsyical sense, the mark she’s left on our lives will always be there.

  2. So sorry for your loss. She was a special lady who I had the privilege of working with and bowling. May she rest in peace. Your family is in my prayers.
