The long fight is over and she is in a place of healing and peace. I know you will miss her loving kind spirit more than I can imagine. Know we all love you and are here for you in this very trying time

Rene was an exceptional woman and like no one else I have ever met. She did things her way and she left a mark in this world, for sure. It has been a pleasure to know her over the past decade and be a witness to the beautiful love shared between her and William, as well. Simply beautiful. Prayers to the family during this difficult time.

My heart goes out to all of Rene's family. Rene was a kind, and beautiful woman inside and out. She touched a very special place in my heart. The love she and William shared was absolutely beautiful and an inspiration. I am heartbroken by her passing. However, it is comforting to know that her long, hard fought battle is over and she is at peace. Those closest to her know; she is still with us. Rest peacefully dear lady.

Rene got everything she could out of life and always was a positive spirit. She was my Sister in Law and we enjoyed time together in Ohio with our families also in Europe, Florida and Virginia. We all love Rene and her children and grand children surrounded her with love all the way to the end of her life. Her spirit lives on and she on to her next adventure.

Michael Brown

Blessings to the family and friends. I’m happy that Renee is at peace, and I’m sure she’s having a great time being with her dad and my parents. I’m sure they greeted her with open arms. Hang on to the happy memories of the past, and keep your face toward the sunshine, so you don’t see the shadows. Hugs and love.

Since we all met in 2004, you both have been good friends and a couple many aspire to be. Truly heartbroken to hear of the loss of René. I wish our words could somehow ease your sadness, but in our hearts, we know the most they can do is simply tell you all how much we care.

Chris Burgess & Kent Bruner

The sun, the moon, the wind, the stars, will forever be around, reminding you of the love you shared, and the peace she’s finally found. Our deepest condolences, your family in California.

About 27 years ago in December of 1992 we met Renee only once when William's grandmother passed away we started to really get to know her about 15 years ago by phone and mail what a woman I have never known anyone like her I wish we could have lived closer to both of you so we could have known her better Trisha and Renee's love of angels was a real Connecting Point for both of them Tricia even sent Renee some of her favorite angels when she was real sick when Trisha passed away in January 21st 2018 Renee helped me to realize Tricia was not gone and was watching over me the same way Renee is watching over you son I love you son and I do feel your pain

William R. Fitch

Janie & Susie

William, I only met Renee once but just seeing the two of you together showed how much you truly loved each other. My condolences to you and your family during this very difficult time. You are all in my prayers.

Jenipher McMillan

My thoughts and prayers to your family. I grew up with Rene. I was a few years older and we all rode that crazy school bus together. Renee was always so full of joy, always smiling, always laughing. Heaven certainly has gained a beautiful angel.

Tonya Christian

Dear William and Family
We share in your sorrow and send our love and prayers to you all. I will never forget one particular time when we ran into each other at the Eagles concert....and me and Renee getting the giggle fits and doing fake British accents together so much fun to be around.
I always felt a connection to Renee in spirit and friendship. Her intelligence and sensitivity to the world could show you to look at things a little differently and for that I thank her.

Laura & Ron

William and family,
I feel blessed that I had the opportunity to get to know Rene over the past few years. Cherish your memories! Prayers to you and your family


My love, my heart, and my prayers have been with you all this week, and especially today. I am holding all of the precious memories that I have with Rene so close in my heart. I will always remember how her beauty, sparkle, and fun humor filled the room. My love and hugs go out to all of the family, and I wish that I could be there with you this day to honor her life.

Jennifer Johnson

Rene was a singular spirit unlike anyone I have ever known. She understood her gift for empathy as a blessing and sought ways to employ it in the service and comfort of others in a caring and novel manner all her own. Too smart for convention, she loved all kinds, had no patience for intolerance, and possessed a defiant and irreverent wit that was brilliant and hilarious. There was poetry and assurance in the original way that she framed and experienced the web of spirit and love in the world. And the joy and faith that she found in these connections is a comfort to us now. I am grateful and touched by the wonderful and lasting love that she and William shared. My heart goes out to her children and all of her loving friends and family. She was truly one of a kind, and we are lucky to have shared the time we had with her.

Rick Somers

I was so very sorry to hear of this great loss. My heartfelt thoughts are with you and your family William, and hope that you all are comforted by loved ones and friends, near and far, who share in your sorrow.

My thoughts and prayers go out to your family. It sounds like you have lost a beautiful soul. One who will live in your hearts forever. It is my hope that you will find comfort in this scripture in the Bible at Acts 24:15
There it tells us that by means of the resurrection God will bring our loved ones back.
With deepest regards


I would like to express deep condolences to the family and many friends
of Mrs Rene' Fitch
no doubt she was loved and will be missed by many
the impact that she had on others was priceless "the God of all comfort " ,
will give you the strength to cope with the loss of your dear loved one
(1 Peter 5:7) " while you throw all your anxiety on him , because he cares
for you "
this is an invitation from God (Psalms 83:18) inviting you to allow him to help
you deal with your loss as well as any other problems you may have
because he really does care for you.....
