She worked as a beautician for many years. She married Alphonse Frederick Stang who she met at the Sartell Winterhaven Roller Rink and together they raised six children in their loving home. Renee walked strongly in her faith as a member of St. Francis Xavier Catholic Church and was a member of the choir, as well as the Christian Mothers, and Daughters of Isabella. She loved to sing and was also a member of the Sartell Community Singers. Renee enjoyed helping her community and will be remembered for her time volunteering for her church’s fall festival and Catholic Charities. Above all else, she enjoyed playing the accordion, cards, puzzles, crafts, and spending time with family.
