Barbara Renberg passed away on a beautiful summer morning, July 10, 2014. A devout Christian with a gift of hospitably, she was the most kind, considerate, and unassuming woman who always put the needs of others first.
She was born in 1921 to Walker and Francis Wright and raised in Shelly, Idaho. After high school graduation she received RN training in Salt Lake City, and also worked toward a pilot's license in the WAC. She married Don Copeland in 1943, and they had three children- Patti, Bob, and Gary. His career in the Army/Air Force kept them moving from Pennsylvania to Indiana, Colorado, Missouri and Japan.
In 1975 she married Dan Renberg, and they built a home in Leavenworth. Friends and family, including his children Pat, Perry, Dean and Dave, kept the house filled with laughter, and the seeds of Cascade Mtn. Bible Church were planted there.
Barbara was so trusting in human nature that she would always stop for hitchhikers.
She was preceded in death by husband Dan and sister Juanita, and is survived by sister Doris Plesner of Idaho Falls; daughter, Patti Powers of Wenatchee; sons, Bob Copeland of Leavenworth and Gary of Sandy, Oregon; five grandchildren, and ten great grandchildren.
In loving memory of your beautiful face and character, Mother.
A memorial service will be held at Cascade Mountain Bible Church on Friday, July 18, 2014.
