Renie Egan Hale, 81, died of natural causes on October 23, 2020 at Poet’s Walk in Sarasota,
Renie was born Renie Alice Egan on April 1, 1939 in Wilkinsburg, Pennsylvania, the daughter of
John and Julia Egan. She married the love of her life, Clarence Angus Hale, on August 24, 1957.
The pair traveled and lived all over the globe. They settled in St Mary’s County, Maryland in
1969 with their sons where they built a couple of homes on the Potomac River. Their family and
friends have fond memories of time spent poolside and fishing at their waterfront estate and
sailing aboard The Bridgeman. Renie worked as an office manager for Babcock and Wilcox, a
builder of power plants across the Country, until her retirement in 1995. Renie and Clarence
relocated to Florida in 2007. When they weren’t entertaining friends and family at home or
playing golf, they enjoyed traveling the Country in their motorhome.
Renie enjoyed architecture and interior design, fine art, gardening, sailing and golf. She was a
talented poet; her family is blessed to have her poetry to read and pass on to future
generations. Her greatest joy in life was spending time with her granddaughters.
Renie was preceded in death by her husband of 58 years, Clarence, her son John, her brother
David, and their parents.
Renie is survived by son, Mark Hale (Michelle) of Warrenton, VA; brother, John Egan (Susan) of
Virginia Beach, VA; granddaughters Julia Hale of Fairfax, VA and Sara Hale of Warrenton, VA.
A private graveside service will be held for family due to the pandemic.
