On behalf of her parents, Albert and Elaine Lepiane, her husband, Christopher Newbury, her brother, Paul Lepiane and her children and grandchildren, Kristen, Jay, Cooper and Addison Sanders, and the faculty of Notre Dame High School, we invite you to join us for services to celebrate the life of our dear Rene Lepiane.
Please join us this Wednesday, August 11 at 7:30 PM at St. John Vianney Church in San Jose, CA:
St. John Vianney Church
4600 Hyland Avenue
San Jose, CA 95127
There will be a reception to follow with beverages provided in the church hall directly following the services.
As many of you know, Rene was very talented at accessorizing. She has a beautiful collection of pins, and wore a pin every time she dressed up. Please join me in wearing your favorite pin on Wednesday night in her honor. It will make her smile to know that she rubbed off a little "fashionista" on us all!
Finally, I want to thank the faculty at Notre Dame High School for helping Elaine to put together a beautiful mass, to the families who have and continue to provide meals to the family throughout this time, for the amazing cards, flowers, quilts, art work and blog posts that you sent to Rene (all of which we shared with her), and for the amazing outcry of support for Rene, her parents and husband, and the entire extended family. What an amazing community she built around her both in life and in death. A true testament to the kind of life that she lived!
