ARENSTEIN--Renee. Beloved wife of Jack, devoted mother of Seth and Dr. Michael (Laura), adored grandmother of Ellie, caring sister of Elaine Knoll Lorin, passed October 4. An educator, pianist, life-long learner and friend to many, she influenced her colleagues, family and friends, while selflessly giving to numerous causes. She will be sorely missed.
