She married Terry Knowles on March 17, 1990, in Albany. Renee relocated to Abilene in 1990 and worked for ENT Associates. She attended Pioneer Baptist Church in Abilene.

Renee’s biggest achievement was being a mom and grandmom. She loved her family so much and it brought her immense joy spending time with them.  Renee enjoyed going antique shopping in Coleman and Santa Anna. She also enjoyed crafting, going fishing, and playing dominoes. Renee had a heart of gold and was a wonderful friend.  Her kindness and beautiful smile will be missed.

Preceding Renee in death is her father, Bob McCoy.
