Notes for: Kathryn ("Katie") Beulah Bodine

There is some doubt as to her name being Kathryn/Katherine Beulah or Beulah Katherine. We'll go with the name on the tombstone: Kathryn B. Rennick with the "B" most likely meaning Beulah.

Katie and Lee Rennick and Family

Ed Bodine said that Katie passed away just about 2 weeks after Lee. They lived just a few doors down from the Bodine Shelby Funeral Home in Covington. They had 2 boys and a girl: Beverly, Richard and Roger.

From Jan Bodine:

I found another family tree which related that her first name was Beulah. Although Marvin is unable to confirm or deny this information, I have accepted this name as I sincerely doubt that they just made it up.

Beulah Katherine "Katie" Bodine
born Jan 13, 1904 in Fountain County, IN
died about July 1975 in Covington, IN (Ed and I estimated as we remember that her death was in the summer prior to our marriage the following Spring in 1976)
Katie married Roscoe Lee Rennick
born Jan 29, 1903 in IN
died June 17, 1975 (just about a month prior to Katie's death) in Covington, IN
Lee was a son of
George Washington Rennick
born Jan 5, 1882 in Fountain County, IN
and Margaret E. Allen
born about 1881in IN
Lee had one sibling: Ralph Virgil Rennick

died April 1980 in Pasco, FLA

children of Katie Bodine and Lee Renick:
Richard Lee
Roger Duane

These Rennick children are the ones who have the very old Bodine photos - after the death of Paddy and Gertrude, Katie came to the house and collected all the old family photos...
