Renie Stewart


Renie was raised by her parents Laura and Ben Kunnizzie in Fort McPherson along with her four brothers: Thomas, Ben, George and John and her two sisters: Effie-Jane and Margaret. Renie’s mother passed away while Renie was still a child and as a result had to quit school in order to help her father. She regrets not being able to go to school and advises children today to stay in school as it was a privilege she didn’t have. “I always tell my grandchildren how lucky they are to be able to go through their schooling and I hope they keep it up.”
