Margery Louise Dare passed away peacefully January 27, 2024, at the home of her son Jimmy Reno.
Margery was born in New Castle, Indiana to Charles and Elaine Warnock and was an only child. She married Jim Reno in 1950 and their first daughter, (now deceased) Kathy Boone was born in 1951. She had a very close relationship with her parents and you can only imagine their disappointment when Margery, Jim and Kathy moved to Houston, Texas in 1951.
In 1957, Margery and Jim had their second child, Jimmy Reno, in which Kathy and Jimmy's birthdays were only 1 day apart. Kathy always said that her 6th birthday was her worst birthday that she ever had, because all she got for that birthday was a snotty nose little brother.
Margery and Jim divorced in 1959 and she went to work for Hamm's Brewery in Houston until she moved to Midland, Texas in 1967. There she was a secretary for an oil field company. In 1971, she then moved to Norman, Oklahoma where she lived for 53 years. She was a devout Oklahoma Sooner and Oklahoma City Thunder fan, and never missed a game on TV.
Living in Oklahoma, she worked for Westinghouse Company for over 25 years and there she met her very closest and life-long friends. She married Pete Dare in 1988 until his death in April 2023. She then moved to Kerrville in July of 2023 to be closer to her family.
Margery had several hobbies which included bridge and sewing.
She is survived by her son-in-law, Don Boone and Kathy and Don had two daughters, Kelly and her husband Tony Reina, as well as her other daughter, Jody Cerny and her husband Clay. She is also survived by her son, Jimmy Reno and his wife Carmen with their two children, Jill Reno Simpson and her husband Geoff along with Travis Reno and his wife Amy. She is survived by 13 great-grandchildren along with one great-great grandson.
Last but not least, she is survived by her faithful 4-legged companion, Sophie, who always stayed by her side.
The family would also like to thank James Bennett and all of the staff at Ave Marie Hospice who took such wonderful care of her during this past month.
Margery just came back to the Catholic Church after being away from it for over 60 years, in the fall of 2023, and was a member of Notre Dame Catholic Church in Kerrville.
Her funeral Mass will be 2 PM, Monday, February 5, 2024, at Notre Dame Catholic Church, with a Rosary prior to Mass at 1:30 PM. Burial service will be 10 AM, Wednesday, February 7, 2024, at Arlington Memory Gardens in Midwest City, Oklahoma.
