CALHOUN, Mary Renia
December 19, 1930 — August 31, 2021
On Tuesday, August 31, 2021, Renia Calhoun passed away peacefully at the age of 90.
Renia, and her husband Al, lived in Hillside, ON for over 40 years; they moved to Kelowna, BC in 2016 after Al suffered a stroke. Renia and Al were avid square dancers and spent over 50 years travelling the world square dancing and teaching square dancing.
Renia was a devoted wife and mother and her kind and caring personality shone for all, but her true love was for her children and grandchildren. As her children grew older, Renia went to work at Walkers Department Store and then Woolworths Store in Barrie, Ontario. When she wasn’t working or square dancing, Renia enjoyed cooking and baking for her family and always had her freezer filled with goodies and chocolate chip cookies.
Her legacy lives on through her children Al (Lina), Dale (Wendy), Janice (Barry), David (Tara-Lee), and Donna (Chris), as well as through her 13 grandchildren and 15 great-grandchildren. She goes to join her husband Al who went before on December 8, 2018.
The family would like to take a moment to thank the staff at Sun Pointe Village – Reid’s Corner, and also give special mention to Annisa LPN, for the care and compassion shown to Renia.
Interment will take place in North Vancouver, there will be no formal service by Renia’s request.
