Rene Yowell was born on April 23, 1956 the first child of Robert and Deloria (Jones) Yowell in Indianapolis, Indiana. She was an energetic and spirited child who enjoyed childhood games with her siblings. She attended Noble Schools and was associated with the Noble organization for many years. Her favorite pastimes included listening, singing and dancing to the “old school jams”.
She also enjoyed books and magazines.

Her deep spiritual eyes were the reservoir of her faith, and you could always look in her eyes if
you wanted to know what Nay was feeling.

She was preceded in death by her father Robert Yowell, mother Deloria Yowell-clay, sister Joyce Yowell, & nephew Robert Mayberry Jr.

“What we once enjoyed and deeply loved we can never lose
for all that we love deeply becomes part of us

Helen Keller
