Renee Aaron died on Tuesday, May 14, 2024 at age 92. Brooklyn born and bred, she also resided in Queens and finally, for over half her life, she lived in East Meadow on Long Island.

She had two careers. For many years, she was a kind and brilliant nursery school teacher, who deeply understood young children and how they learn and grow. Later, she entered the world of retail furniture sales, where she applied her knowledge of design and fabric and learned to be as fierce as she was gentle.

Everyone who knew Renee admired her generous spirit, her bubbly sense of humor, and her delight in the company of family, friends, and neighbors.

Renee was predeceased by her beloved husband, Robert Aaron; her two dear brothers, Paul Kravetz and Gerald Kravetz; and her nephew Mitchell Kravetz.

She is survived by her devoted sons, Jeffrey Aaron and Michael Aaron (Betsy Rubin); her grandchildren David Aaron (Katie Conro) and Adrien Aaron (Brianna Aaron); her cousin Lenore Frank (the late Claude Frank); her sister-in-law Meg Kravetz; many nephews, grand-nieces and nephews, and cousins; and dear friends from her childhood, work, and community.

Renee was blessed with seven great-grandchildren: Psyris, Rohan, Kai, Jace, Cambria, Ryker, and Kazimir. Renee also had bonus grand- and great-grandchildren: Sage River Heart, Holly Smith, Cory Smith (Madyha Leghari); and Kian.

We admired Renne’s elegance. She offered warmth and caring hellos to everyone. We will miss sharing holidays together. We are extremely grateful to have shared this passover together. She was happy and shared many great stories. We miss you already but we will hold you in our heart.
