It is with profound sadness that the family of Karen Rentz of Winnipeg, Manitoba announce her unexpected passing on August 4, 2023 at the age of 67.

Born to missionary parents Bill and Gladys Rentz (predeceased), she travelled at a very young age on the Queen Mary ship to Cameroon, Africa. Returning in 1963 to Morris, Manitoba and later raised in Winnipeg, she began her career with Canada Life then with Service Canada until her retirement in 2016.

She had a special close bond with her two children, proud of their accomplishments as they both graduated from law school. Though her passions were sewing and gardening, nothing brought her more joy in 2021 than the birth of her two grandsons Dominic and Nicholas just four days apart!

Karen will be forever missed by her daughter Jodi Myskiw (Corey Blunt), son Joel Myskiw (Kelly Myskiw), brothers Lyndon, Bryon and Ian along with many cousins, friends and family.

Service arrangements announcement to follow.
