  3. What a sad shock to see of a dear friends passing. I’m remembering our road trip together to visit our dear friend Wanda Farnsworth in Idaho. How fun it was to have the 3 Amigos together again playing cards, eating, shopping and laughing together. You were always welcome in the Whittwer home and greeted by RaeNyce’s beautiful smile. A star has fallen and will be greatly missed but never forgotten. May peace and comfort be now with her family.

    We will always have fond memories of Raenyce. She will be missed.

  6. So sorry to hear that RaeNyce has passed away. I had the good fortune to have her as a coach for girls church sports many years ago. Long before girls sports were in our schools, she showed us how to have a fun time and learn to be a team player. Growing up in Santa Clara with her and her great family was a privilege. Years later as I had chances to see her again, she always greeted me with that same love and enthusiastic spirit. As a family, may you be blessed with peace and comfort. We all were lucky to feel her sweet influence in our lives.

  7. I grew up with RaeNyce in Washington. She was my neighbor and always a friend. Memories! Memories! I loved being on her Run Sheepie Run team. Her fun, loving, kind personality never changed. That is why today and for externity she is beloved. I know well why she will be missed..
