She was born January 7, 1924, in Carpentertown, a daughter of the late Elmer E. Goughenour and Eva Irene Dugan Goughenour. Renny was a 1941 graduate of the former Hurst High School in Mt. Pleasant. She was happily married for 38 years to her sweetheart, Francis “Paddy” Gray, who passed away in March of 1981. She was a loving mother and was extremely devoted to her family and her home, which she was very proud of. She had many personal interests and hobbies including genealogy, scrapbooking, poetry, music, sewing & crafts, reading, and most importantly, her spiritual studies. She always looked forward to her yearly visits to Michigan with her best friend/sister, Vivian. In addition to her parents and husband, she is preceded in death by her sister, Hattie Hirak, her brother, Harry “Cokey” Goughenour, and her son-in-law, Wayne Simms.

Pleasant; her grandchildren, Elaina McDonald (Regis), Timothy Simms (Margaret Ann), Kristin Berrigan (Jeff), and Brianna Gera (Skip); and her great-grandchildren, Angela and Maria McDonald, Jeremy Simms (Meghan), Joshua Simms, Sean and Shayla Cain, and Sophia and Sarina Gera.
