Renee Michelle Slonski, of Charlotte, NC, passed away peacefully in her sleep on Tuesday May 17, 2011 at The Lower Cape Fear Hospice and LifeCareCenter in Wilmington, NC.
Renee was born in Erie, PA, and moved to Charlotte as a child, where she made countless friendships. She attended college for education in fine arts, which lead her to a career as a make-up artist with Laura Mercier. She spent many joyful years living and working in Charlotte.
Diagnosed with breast cancer at the age of 28, she inspired countless people with her courage, unwavering determination, infectious laugh and radiant smile, which was ever present. Despite virtually endless treatments and setbacks she continued to live her life to the fullest, never allowing her battle to dampen her spirit.
In 2010 she moved to Wrightsville Beach, NC fulfilling a life-long dream of living and painting at the beach. Affectionately known as, NeNe, she enjoyed the past year spending time with her Godchildren, and her dearest friends and family. Her final days where spent in the loving care of the wonderful people of The Lower Cape Fear Hospice and Life Center, surrounded by her closest friends and family, laughing and smiling until the very end. Her tremendous spirit continued to inspire and amaze all who where blessed to know her.
