Renee Ann Miller, age 45, of Forest Lake, Minnesota died following complications from a recent health issue on Wednesday, January 27, 2021.  She is preceded in death by her father, Rudy Gajeski; brother, Jimmy; two beloved cats, Kozmo and Legolas.  She will be deeply missed by her husband, Kris; daughter, Ariana; cats, Vincent and Jesse; mother, Barbara Gajeski; siblings, Jess (Tana) Gajeski, Kim (Shawn) Gillette, Tom (Jen) Gajeski; other family and friends.  Renee was a fun, loving and happy person that was never seen without a smile on her face.  Her easy-going personality radiated, leaving her memory to live on in the lives of all she knew.

We will all miss her, from her smile to her laugh.  All the places we went and people we met that never left her presence without a smile on their face.  All the traditions started and the ones we will continue with your spirit watching on.  We will remember all the memories shared and sit with remorse over all the ones we should have gotten to share.  All the plans we had and all the things you will miss and we will miss not having you with.  We know you will be with us in our hearts and minds but of course its not the same.  We love you with all our hearts and will miss you deeply as it will be hard to go on without you.  Be at peace with grandpa and the cats.  Shine like the sun for us during the day and be the brightest star in the sky at night.  We will feel your warmth and comfort you brought as we remember your smile that left us smiling too.  We all love you and will miss you as the days go on and you have touched so many and will never be forgotten.

Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated at 11:00 a.m., Wednesday, February 3, 2021 at The Church of Saint Peter, 1250 South Shore Drive, Forest Lake.  PLEASE ENTER THROUGH DOOR #4. For those unable to attend, live streaming will be available at
