Rena, bless your soul sweet and caring lady. 25 years and seven more since I retired at MTD. the most efficient and professional executive secretary Mr. volt and Tom Costello could have ever hoped for it didn’t stop there she gave each of us at MTD the love and caring of a mother hen. It pains me that I can’t be there for your memorial service. I broke my leg on June 29 on July 9 I received a get well card from Rena while in the hospital. Just like Rena, always thoughtful and caring. Over the years wherever I ran into Rena wI would reach out a greeting handshake and she would push it away and give me a hug Franklin Delano Longfellow

Rena was one of the most thoughtful people. She was always there with a cheery card & call when someone needed it. I spoke with her on Monday & am still in shock & this hurts my heart. I've know her for over 40 years & will truly miss her. Carol, I've only seen you a handful of times, but I know how much your friendship meant to her. I'm so sorry.

To those who were "family" to Rena, especially Carol and Faye, my sincere condolences. Rena was a thoughtful and friendly person.

I was very sorry to hear of Rena's passing. I did the radio and TV commercials for the MTD for years and working with Tom Costello I also had the pleasure of working with Rena. A lovely person, she was always "on top of things" knowing what was going on at the MTD and always so helpful to everyone. I fondly remember the beautiful collection of "snow globes" in her office representing her "collecting" of them from around the world,

Rena was the first person that I talked to when I applied for a Bus Driving job at MTD way back in 1977. She was so nice to me. We became friends later in the years. Rena, I and others met a few times at the "Original Pancake House" to have breakfast & coffee and some great conversation. She could be serious as well as funny. I will miss her and the wonderful email conversations we have had as well as her cheery Christmas cards. Rena will always be in my memory as well as in my heart. GOD Bless her soul!
