Renee Remembered

By Uncle Hans

I recently spent some quality time with Neil at Shorty's in Tomahawk.  He scolded me for not creating a memorial blog for Renee. Today is Valentines day and tomorrow is 6 weeks since she passed.

    What follows are a few pictures  and her obituary.....


Renee Charlene Carlson, 56, of Spooner died on January 4, 2020, in Spooner.
Renee was born on July 23, 1963, to Paul and Karen (Kieran) Carlson in Stillwater, Minnesota.  She grew up in Bloomington, Minnesota.  She worked in the airline industry, ran her own daycare business, and went into healthcare, mastering each field with determination and dedication.  Renee mothered two loving sons, Garrett, 31, of Minneapolis, and Spencer, 27, of Hugo, Minnesota.  She cared for and ministered to both her parents as they died from cancer in their 50’s, taking her mother into her own home for nearly two years.  She has a brother, Matthew, in Phoenix, and a sister, Laura, in the Seattle area.  She moved to the Spooner area in 2008, after vacationing here since 1955, and loved living on the lake in the quiet Northwoods.  She is also survived by her husband, Hans Rechsteiner of Spooner.  She will long be remembered by all who knew her for her quick and beautiful smile and quiet thoughtfulness.
