Sister died at the Maria Joseph Center in Dayton, Ohio, on Aug. 12, 2014. Renee had been a Sister of the Precious Blood for 69 years.
The second oldest of six children, Velma Margaret was born in Ottoville on July 1, 1929 to Sylvester A. and Frances A. (Gergen) Hoehn. She formally entered the Congregation of the Sisters of the Precious Blood at age 16. In religious life she was known as Sister Marie Renee Hoehn.
In her religious life Sister Renee was always happy to do whatever needed to be done because she felt as if she touched God in a unique way when she ministered to others. Sister was an educator for 47 years, teaching primary grades in Phoenix, Ariz.; Escondido, Calif.; St. Joseph, Missouri; Ft Wayne, Ind; and in the Ohio cities of Bellefontaine, Centerville, Celina, Columbus Grove, New Riegel, North College Hill, Wapakoneta and Kettering. From 1995-2012 she lived at Salem Heights in Dayton and was a part-time helper at the Maria Joseph Center serving in the post office, general store and at Emma Hall where the infirmed CPPS Sisters resided. Because of failing health she moved in 2012 to the Maria Joseph Center.
Sister Marie Renee is survived by her sisters Dorothy Bowen, Lorene Lindeman and Eileen Kehres and nieces and nephews. Preceding her in death were her brothers Arthur and Donald, both who died in infancy.
Interment will be in the Salem Heights Cemetery.
