Renee Diane (Mallon) Watson passed away June 10, 2019, at the Cass County Memorial Hospital in Atlantic. She was born March 13, 1956, in Atlantic, Iowa to Lawrence and Marvele A. (Samson) Mallon. Renee was a graduate of Atlantic High school in 1974. She graduated from Iowa Western Community College in 1980, with an Associates Degree in Early Childhood Development. She was married to the love of her life, Bruce, on February 14, 1974. Renee and Bruce resided in Wiota, Atlantic, and Woden, Iowa, before settling in their current house in Atlantic.

Her love of dance started at the age of nine and as an adult she taught dance lessons to others that shared her interest. She worked as a child care provider, bank teller, apartment manager, and homemaker. Her love for people gave her the opportunity to volunteer feeding the homeless with Table of Mercy, serving breakfast first at Siena Francis House and then at Open Door Mission, both in Omaha. She also recently served others with Beautiful Gate Ministries in Omaha in their street ministry program. This gave Renee the great opportunity to pray for individuals she met from the street; her greatest delight, to tell them of the love Jesus had for them.
Renee was a member of New Life Church CGOP, in Atlantic and was active in the church’s Back to School program, Easter Egg Hunt, and Christmas Play, as well as various other activities. She was usually the first to welcome any new people to church and always had a hug for everyone. As a member of Gideons International, she has given out hundreds of Bibles to nursing homes, doctor’s offices and individuals.

Renee is survived by her husband, Bruce; daughter, Tiffany (Kevin) Houser of Waterloo, Iowa; son, Christopher (Amanda) Watson of Waterloo, Iowa; mother, Marvele Mallon of Atlantic; brothers, Steve (Peggy) Mallon of Cedar Falls, Iowa, Lonnie (Mary Jo) Mallon of Janesville, Iowa, Jim (Dita) Mallon of Sumner, Iowa, Derek Mallon of Omaha, Nebraska, and Eric Mallon of Atlantic; five granddaughters, Valerie Watson, Lacey Houser, Kyrie Poor, Samantha Houser, Morgan Houser; three grandsons, Logan Houser, Axl Poor, Archer Watson; and many nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles and friends, all of whom she loved unconditionally.
She was preceded in death by her father, Lawrence Mallon.

Memorials may be made to New Life Church and Gideons International.

Visitation with the family present will be held from 5:00 p.m. – 7:00 p.m., Friday, June 14th at Roland Funeral Home.

A Celebration of Life service will be held at 10:30 a.m., Saturday, June 15th at Roland Funeral Home, with Pastor Ben Winford of the New Life Church officiating.

Thoughts are Renee's family. Knew Renee as a teenager many years ago and she always had a smile on her face back then. She will be missed.

Dear Bruce and Family,

Our hearts feel so empty knowing that we will not see Renee on this earth again. Oh...but Heaven...yes, Heaven...where our spirits will hug as we meet again! Renee was the epitome of the love of our Savior. Cherish the memories you have of her. You must each have a treasure chest overflowing with those beautiful memories. May our Lord hold you in the palms of His Hands as you journey together.
