Renee Scott Breslin

Born Sheila Renee Scott on December 4, 1925, Renee was a loving mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, sister and friend to many people. Renee died peacefully on December 24, 2019 at the age of 94, joining her Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, for all eternity.

Renee was preceded in death by her husband Jacweir "Jack" Breslin and is survived by her three sons, Jacweir (Jay) Breslin, Brian Scott Breslin, John Thomas Breslin III, six grandchildren and sixteen great-grandchildren.

Renee graduated from Okemos High School at age 16 and went on to graduate from Michigan State College (MSU) in 1946 where she met the love of her life, Jack. Renee helped establish the Okemos Chieftan Booster Club in the 1960's, chaired the initial capital fundraising campaign for the Nokomis Cultural Heritage Center, was Vice President of Sales for Vanda Corporation in the 1970's-80's, and was involved in many other church and community organizations.

Renee will be buried next to her husband Jack in a private family ceremony.

With tears and smiles Renee is remembered - such a bright happy soul! She was creative, kind, fun, intelligent, self-demeaning and a rascal, beautifully knit together by her grace and love. At long last she is reunited with your dad - a love story completed. Good thoughts to you all.
