RENNER, Donna Lee (Spatafore) (Age 80) Passed away Saturday, March 23, 2013 in Spokane.

She was born August 19, 1932 in Spokane to Felix and Kathleen Spatafore.

She was preceded in death by her husband and love of her life Robert (Bob) E. Renner, whom she met while attending Rogers High School.

She is survived by her son Rob (Diane) Renner, daughters Vicky (Doug) Main and Sue Renner; 8 grandchildren Carrie (Tyler) Redd, Ryan (Lindsey) Main, Angela (Peter) Hagen, Damon (Cristina) Barkdull, Fletcher (Denise) Barkdull, Marshall (LaKeisa) Barkdull, Luke Renner and Matt Renner; 10 great-grandchildren and one more on the way; 2 step-sisters Kathleen Hartung and Debra Frederickson.

She was very artistic, creative and could play the organ and piano by ear.

Her home looked like a museum adorned with the handmade treasures and paintings she so loved to create.

She also loved to play the slots and looked forward to those days when she could sit with her kids at the casino and chat for hours while playing her beloved machines.

She loved to dance with her husband and party with her kids until all hours of the night.

She was the life of the party.

She was a wonderful mom and grandmother.

There wasn’t anything she wouldn’t do for her children and grandchildren and she loved them dearly.

We will all miss her greatly.

A celebration of her life will be held at a later date.

Memorial contributions may be sent to Hospice of Spokane, PO Box 2215, Spokane, WA 99210
