Age 74

GODFREY, Renee’ (Lowe) August 18, 1939 - September 1, 2013 Renee’ (Lowe) Godfrey (74) was born on August 18, 1939 in Blackfoot, ID, and passed away peacefully Sunday morning, September 1, 2013, after battling a brain tumor for nearly 14 years. Renee’ spent most of her growing up years in Salmon, ID. She moved back to Blackfoot, ID where she graduated high school. She went to business school in Boise, ID. There she met and later married Dale A. Godfrey on May 24, 1958. They eventually ended up in Spokane, WA, where they raised their four children. Upon Dale’s retirement, they moved to Cove, OR for seven years, then on to Newport, WA for 16 years. Two years ago, they moved back to the Spokane Valley, where they lived at Courtland Place. Renee’ had a love of music, reading, cross-stitching and other handi-work. She had many wonderful adventures traveling with Dale - and especially loved going to Alaska. She enjoyed her associations at Church and especially in working with the children. She was preceded in death by her parents, Weston and Gwendolyn Lowe; brother, Dean Lowe; and sister, Sandra Lowe. She is survived by her husband of 55 years, Dale Godfrey; brother, James Lowe (Jesse Knight) of Gilbert, AZ; son Brien (Judi) Godfrey of Moses Lake, WA; daughter Brenda (Michael) Rennaker of Spokane Valley, WA; daughter Kelly (Jeffrey) Steck of South Jordan, UT; and son Kim Godfrey of Spokane, WA.
