Renee Bearden

January 04, 1961 - December 23, 2013


Renee Ringuette Bearden,  52, Fargo, North Dakota died at her home on Monday, December 23rd .

Renee was born in Fargo to Barbara and Duane Ringuette on January 4, 1961. She graduated from  Shanley High School in Fargo, and Anoka Technical College in Anoka Minnesota.  She moved to Phoenix where she was a human resource director for Target stores.  She subsequently joined the Fairfield Inn  of Phoenix as a hotel manager for a number of years, and then moved to the Fargo area to be closer to family. She has since been office manager for Used-a-Bit Sales, Inc where she loved her work and the people she worked with.

Renee’s business acquaintances and personal friends were attracted to her bubbly personality and gregarious nature. She had been active in the Big Sister organization while in the Phoenix area and continued to interact with friends near and far via Facebook.  With her very creative nature, Renee designed cards using numerous novelty accessories that delighted friends and family throughout the years.

Above all, Renee cherished her roll of ‘mom’ to her daughter Trinity, and the two spent wonderful times together with family and friends. 

Renee is survived by her daughter Trinity, and brothers and sisters Barbara Miller (Don), Pflugerville, Texas; Gene Ringuette (Janeen), Maple Grove Minnesota; Lavetta Syverson (Ryle) , Grand Forks North Dakota; Ken Ringuette (Maggie), Fargo, North Dakota; Dana  Ringuette (Renee), Charleston, Illinois ; John Ringuette, Lisbon, North Dakota;  Tom Ringuette (Deb), Fargo, North Dakota; and her aunt Sister Paula Ringuette, Fargo, North Dakota.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations be made to Renee’s family to provide an education fund for Trinity.

    Sincere condolences for your loss. Cherish loving memories of laughter and times spent together. Proverbs 17:22 says: “a joyful heart is good medicine”, therefore, may those memories bring you joy and warm your heart. Take comfort from the promises and hope found at Revelation 21:4 (death will be no more), and Acts 24:15 (hope of the resurrection of those who have fallen asleep in death). As you grieve the loss of Renee, may Jehovah, the Father of tender mercies and God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our trials (2 Corinthians 1:3,4), comfort you in your time of need.

    I am so sorry to hear of Renee’s passing. I remember her from Nativity and Shanley, where she was always so spirited and fun. A lovely, kind woman who had time for all of us. My sincere condolences to the Ringuette family.

    Renee’ Ringuette. I think the year was 1974 and I was a young business college student working doing early afternoon/evening supervision of polling operations for the Democratic NPL Party in downtown Fargo. Over the weeks, many volunteers of all ages came and went, each being paid for each call they completed. The weeks of operation ended quickly with the election. When it was all said and done and as the years have gone by, only one of those volunteers has ever stood out in my mind – a young fun-loving girl with an amazing personality and infectious laugh. I even remember the way she wrote her name on her call sheets in her rounded cursive RENEE’ RINGUETTE, always with that emphatic accent mark at the end of Renee’. I’ve thought of her many times over the years because for some reason she made a real impression on me. I have wondered if our paths were to cross again, would she even remember me? I think not because I have never had that kind of outgoing personality that really makes a lasting impression like Renee’ did on me. In the end, I will remain hopeful. If that second chance ever rolls around, I will tell her about the positive impact she made on my life and how fondly I have thought of her over the years. It is difficult to imagine how the people that REALLY had a chance to know and love Renee’ must feel.

    I don’t think I have seen Renee since high school, but my memories are of her always smiling. So sad that such a sweet soul is gone. More recently we connected through Facebook and her happy spirit came through just like I remembered. Prayers for Renee’s daughter and the rest of her family.
