Morgan Renee Rentz

Resided in Armuchee, GA

On March 5, 2020, Morgan Renee Rentz passed away from a sudden illness at the age of 20.

Morgan was a 2017 graduate of Armuchee High School, where she was a cheerleader for the Armuchee High Basketball teams and a member of Health Occupation Students of America (HOSA).  She was a student at Georgia Highlands College in Rome, GA, pursuing a degree in Elementary Education.  She worked part-time at Renaissance Marquis Assisted Living and recently with Starbucks Coffee.  Morgan was a huge fan of the University of Georgia Bulldogs and the Lowndes High Vikings football teams.

Morgan will be remembered by family and friends for her kind, sweet, loving spirit that combined with her sense of humor, could make the worst of times better.  Her personality filled the room and she had an ability to connect to people that made them feel special.  In a final act of goodwill for others, she chose to generously donate her organs.
