"We got this!" Renace Jones

"No Stress, No Worries... We Got This"

This was the mantra of a warrior, with a heart of gold. 

 Renace Jones, beloved infant room teacher for Li'l Tykes Childcare passed on October 9, 2018. Renace was diagnosed with, and battling an aggressive stomach cancer in May of 2018. Her unwavering strength, and will to fight carried her through 5 months of grueling chemotherapy. Surrounded by her family and friends, her spirits were nothing but positive through her entire fight. 

Renace had been a part of the Li'l Tykes family for almost 7 years. During this time 100 infants, whom she loved and cared for like her own, came through her classroom. But, the lives of families and staff members whom she impacted within this center is countless

She will always be remembered as our “welcome wagon”, here every morning to open the doors and greet every child and parent by name as they walked through. Her bright smile, infectious laugh, and warm heart never failed to brighten someone's day.

There are no words to express the sadness we feel, or how deeply missed she will be.

In addition to a number of extended family, Renace is mainly survived by her Father, Henry Beard, Step-Mother, Felicia Beard and Son, Hakim Jones.

If any families are interested in helping to contribute to Renace’s family during this difficult time, we have set up this go fund me page in her honor.

All donations raised will go to her son Hakim.

As per Renace’s wishes, we would like to keep the link off all social media platforms. If there is any one that you would like to share this  link with please do so privately.

On behalf of Renace's family as well as our family at Li'l Tykes Childcare we thank you in advance for all your support in this difficult time.
