Renee Lynn King

Sunday, February 4th, 2024

Renee Lynn King, our beloved daughter, sister, granddaughter and aunty passed away at home February 4, 2024, after a long battle with colon cancer.  Renee was born to Ed and Debbie (Ruthford) King December 18, 1978, in Sedro-Woolley, Washington.  She graduated from Burlington Edison High School with the class of 1997.  Renee was employed by Chinook Enterprises.  She enjoyed working at Chinook and really felt like she was part of the team.  Renee went through a lot in her short 45 years, but her red headed Irish spirit got her through any challenge she faced.

Renee is survived by her parents, Ed and Debbie (Ruthford) King; grandpa, John ‘Jack’ Ruthford; sisters, Shannon (David) Wise and Sara (Jenkins) Dossen; nieces and nephews Mckayla Wise, Kamryn Wise, Parker Dossen, Logan Wise and Emery Dossen; aunts & uncles, Jackie (Dan) Berry,  John Ruthford, Jr., Patti (Curt) Burhenn and Kathy King; numerous cousins.

She was preceded in death by her grandparents, Kenneth and Marian King, and Geraldine Ruthford; uncle, Larry King.

We would like to thank Chinook Enterprises for being so kind and understanding during her illness, Skagit Regional Cancer Center for their exceptional care and kindness during her illness and Hospice of the Northwest for being there for Renee and our entire family during her last four weeks.  Donations can be sent to Hospice of the Northwest at 227 Freeway Drive Suite A, Mount Vernon, WA  98273.

    I will truly miss Renee at Chinook. She was always good to share a smile and a laugh even during some rough times over the last few months. I will remember her quick wit and caring ways.

    Renee was a sweet human being who faced a lot of adversity in her life. She always fought hard, especially over the past couple of years when she faced her biggest challenge of all. She showed tremendous courage all the way. Rest easy now young lady, you’ve earned it.
