Renee Harris Markham, age 54 of Lulu, Florida heard God’s whisper, “Well done my good and faithful Servant,” and she answered His call to come home on Friday, February 9, 2018. Renee was born in Lake City, Florida and was the daughter of Rodney Carswell Harris, and Loretta and J.B. Callahan. She attended Columbia County Schools and later married the love of her life, Nevin Markham. Renee was a wonderful, God-fearing woman who had a passion for serving her community. That passion translated into many years of volunteer and community service as the secretary for the Lulu Baptist Church and for the Lulu Community Center. Renee worked with the Union County Clerk’s office for the past 18 years and truly loved her work family. She was well known and respected in her community; she was never too busy to offer a smile, a word of encouragement or a helping hand. She cherished the many lively times with her children and grandchildren, and valued the quiet, simple days sitting on the patio with her husband.
Renee has now rejoined with many of her loved ones, which includes her parents and her grandson, Hunter Lane Proveaux all who each preceded her in death. She will be missed and never forgotten by her Husband, Nevin Markham, four children, Dwayne Markham, Nina Markham, Nichole (Brent) Proveaux, Kyle (Kailee) Markham, and three grandchildren, Braedon, Colton, and Presley Proveaux, and three sisters Michelle (Billy) Geiger, Brenda (Randy) Henderson, and Tina (Robert) Ratliff, and a host of Uncles, Aunts, Nephews, Nieces, Cousins and friends.
