Grace Reneau Obituary, Death Cause – GRACE MAE RENEAU, age 90, of Dandridge, Tennessee, died away in the comfort of her own home on Friday afternoon, May 26, 2023. She was accompanied by her loved ones at the time of her passing. She was involved in both her church and the community, having been a founding member of Dandridge Full Gospel Ministries Church and maintaining an active role there. She was known as Mama Grace to everyone in the church and the community. She was also known as “Granny” to the grandkids, and she was a loving mother, grandmother, sister, and friend to everyone who came into touch with her.
She was always eager to assist in any way she could with initiatives in her church and community, and this trait will be one of the things that people remember most about her. Her parents, William (W.R.) Swann and Hesta Lee Loveday-Baxter, as well as her stepfather, Houston Baxter, her stepbrothers Tommy and Carl, and her sisters Dorothy, Betty, and Louise, as well as her granddaughter, Angel Dawn, all passed away before she did. Her husband of 56 years, Herbert Reneau, also passed away before her. Grace is survived by her daughters, Susie (Rev. Troy) Duncan, Don (Clara) Reneau, and Patty (Ken) Sparks; her brother, Rev. Cecil Baxter; her sisters, Linda Simpson and Shirley Edmonds; a number of grandkids, great-grandchildren, and great-great grandchildren; and a number of nieces and nephews.
Grace also leaves behind a number of great-great grandchildren. My sincere gratitude goes go to Smoky Mountain Hospice in Morristown, Amanda Duncan Tipton, Leslie Blair, and Dylan Gray. Funeral services will be performed on Tuesday, May 30, 2023, at 7:00 pm at the Dandridge Full Gospel Ministries Church. Reverend Cecil Baxter and Dr. Darrell Bewley will preside over the ceremony. Wednesday at one o’clock in the afternoon, funeral services at the cemetery will be performed at Hills Union Cemetery.
