Renee Forest

July 17, 1969 — January 2, 2024

Renee Forest (nee Recker) was born on July 17, 1969 and joined the Lord on January 2, 2024 at the age of 54.
 
She was born in Cincinnati, Ohio to Joseph and Ruth Recker who preceded her in death. She was the beloved wife of David and they raised their family together in West Chester, Ohio.
 
She was mother to Savannah and Grace. Step-mother (“Nay-Nay”) to Cassie, Chelsea (Cody), and Parker (Lacey). She was Gma to Isabella, Lucas, Emerson, and Charlie. She also shocked the world by becoming a loving dog mom to Rosie and Shiloh.
 
She was the cherished sister of Jim (Sandy), Tim (Lisa), Rob (Ginger), and Doug (Jill). Renee was also survived by numerous nieces, nephews, relatives, and friends.
 
She was raised in Greenhills, Ohio with her siblings and many beloved family members. She graduated high school from Roger Bacon High School and still has many friendships that she cherished from there. She graduated college from the University of Cincinnati. 
 
She worked at Recker and Boerger for many years before deciding to use that time to focus on her girls. On top of being a super mom, she spent many hours volunteering at her girls school, church, and impacted the lives of many other kids.
 
In 2012, she was diagnosed with brain cancer, but fought bravely for the last 12 years. During that time, Renee participated in the UC Brain Tumor Center’s, “Walk Ahead for Brain Tumor Discoveries”.
 
Renee was someone who couldn’t go anywhere without running into a friend and if she didn’t run into a friend, she made sure to make one. Renee lived a full and exciting life devoted to God, family, and friends. Her family will forever cherish the light that she brought into everyone's lives.
