Renie peacefully passed away at the age of 82, in Port McNeill, BC. Predeceased by; her husband, Kenneth (Bud) Law, parents, Grace and James Wight of Winnipeg, Manitoba and brother Donald of Vancouver. Renie is survived by sisters Lorrine, Inez, and Grace all of Winnipeg, Manitoba. Her children; Keith (Elizabeth), Kim (Shari), and Pamela, loving grandchildren, Katherine, Tyler, Matthew and Tamara. Renie will be fondly missed by her faithful 4-legged companions, Rambo & Teddy.
Born and raised in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Renie lived vibrantly and fully. Active in her community, she sang and modeled throughout her youth. After graduating Comptometer School in 1943, she worked proudly as a Comptometer Operator, while awaiting Bud’s return from overseas duty. Bud and Renie were happily married in 1947. After starting their family in Winnipeg they relocated to Edmonton in 1958, to the BC Lower Mainland in 1960. They then moved to Telegraph Cove, Northern Vancouver Island in 1970.
From 1973-1980, Renie worked as a terminal agent for the Dept. of Highways at the Beaver Cove Ferry Terminal. After moving to Port McNeill in 1980, Renie continued her profession with B.C. Ferries at the Port McNeill Terminal until her retirement in 1989.
Renie’s kind and generous spirit will be forever missed and fondly remembered, by her children and grandchildren. The memories of coffee-cup sandcastles and playing boats, sharing her passion for camping & the outdoors, her creative ways of making all our houses “HOME”. Her laughter around Buttle Lake campfires, her love, will last us all lifetimes.
Renie and Bud were lovingly supported by their many friends in Port McNeill, including “The Happy Gang”.
The family is particularly grateful for the watchful care supplied by friends, Stu & Anna Goldsbury, and Rob & Betty Yates. The family would also like to thank the healthcare professionals of Port McNeill.
The family will be forever grateful to Nurse Leaders and Home Support workers for the years of care and devoted attention to both Bud & Renie.

Always tender, fond and true,
The dearest mother, grandmother, the kindest friend,
One of the best, whom God could lend,
Loving, thoughtful, and true,
To love, to cherish, to never forget,
Remembrance keeps her near
