She formerly held an office in Brunswick but has worked over the past five years solely in her office in St. Marys. Her areas of expertise included all matters related to family law, bankruptcy and personal injury matters.

Renee was also a second lieutenant in the U.S. Army.
Renee’s passions included her strong faith in and love of God, family, friends, golf and garage sales. Many afternoons and weekends you could find Renee out with her friends on the links of her favorite golf course, Laurel Island Links golf club, as well as at garage sales and flea markets.
Renee is survived by her two brothers, Matt Weiss (Suzanne) and Chris R. Weiss (Nancy), along with nieces Christina and Madeline Weiss, and nephews Jonathan, Luke, Paul, Mark and Johnny Weiss. Renee has two children, Lance Weiss and Deanette Weiss Myers. She also left behind her beloved dog, Toby. Renee had a gentle, loving nature, always helping and giving to others. She always showed kindness and gave assistance to anyone in need. Her sweet spirit will be greatly missed by all.
Preceding her in death were her parents, Ray A Weiss (died July 11, 2007) and her beloved mother, Elizabeth Jean Weiss (died March 28, 2017).
