In Loving Memory

ReNee passed away peacefully on February 18, 2014 surrounded by her family. The youngest of three sisters, she was born on June 27, 1937 in Lakewood, Washington. A woman of many talents, she found her beautiful Soprano voice at an early age. In her younger years she sang for many weddings, funerals & was frequently featured on the radio. Not only was she musically inclined, but she was also an accomplished roller skating dancer! She attended The University of Puget Sound with a scholarship in music and thoroughly enjoyed her time there. She met her husband, John Bez, singing at El Gaucho Lounge in Seattle. Her husband to be John heard her captivating voice and told his dinner guests, "I Am Going to Marry That Girl!," and he did! John & ReNee would remain married until his premature death in January 1999. Along with John, ReNee was a huge supporter of Children's Orthopedic Hospital in Seattle and they frequently held fund raising events at their home in Seward Park, Washington. John & ReNee also shared a passion for The University of Washington Huskies Football team and regardless of their standing, faithfully kept track of the team each season.

Outside of being a Mom, Renee's greatest joy was her prized log home that she built in Cle Elum, Washington. She always had an eye for design & it was her crowning glory to be able to create this wonderful retreat for the family. She was an exemplary woman and we will miss her profoundly.

Renee was preceded in death by her husband, John P. Bez & her eldest sister Deana Wills. She is survived by her daughter, Rhea Bez, her son-in-law Justin Waskow, her sister Shawnee Price, her brother-in-law, Nick Bez and six nieces and nephews. In lieu of flowers please send donations in her honor to Seattle Children's Hospital.

A Celebration of life will be held on March 2nd at the family home located at 5511 182nd St., Kenmore, Washington 98028

Always & Forever in The Windmills of Our Minds XOXOXO
