We lost a dear friend yesterday. Renee was from South Africa and made her home here in Betar Illit to be close to one of her daughters and grandchildren. This past year was a difficult one for Renee, but she always tried to keep a smile on her face. Renee was always easy going and pleasant to be around. She was always trying to help. She was an extremely talented artist and took up quilting to join our group. Renee enjoyed making things for her family and friends.
Here is just a small sampling of what she made.
When I moved into my present apartment 3 1/2 years ago, Renee called my home the Quilting Corner. Whenever she came to the group she said how happy she was to be back at the Quilting Corner. Even though we called ourselves the Zahava Quilters, or Golden Girls in English, the name Quilting Corner has remained with us. Thanks to Renee for making our present logo.
We will all miss her very much.
