Obituary

Rena Mae Cartwright, age 93, died Wednesday, June 10, 2020, at Stanton County Long Term Care Unit in Johnson, Kansas. She was born June 25, 1926, in Fall River, Tennessee, the daughter of Orville and Jenner “Nettie” (Plunkett) Warren.

Rena grew up in Tupelo, Mississippi. She married Morris Cartwright on August 27, 1941, in Pryor, Oklahoma. After their marriage, they resided in Claremore, Oklahoma, until 1945, moved to Richfield, Kansas, and settled in Johnson in 1948. As a cook at Johnson Grade School for 29 years, she enjoyed the children and has kept in contact with some of them to this day. In the late 1950’s, Rena and Morris started Cartwright Rentals and began to purchase homes and lots in Johnson which they turned into many rental properties. In 1976, they opened Twin-C Home Improvement Center with their son Jim. Rena was very active in the community, and was a member of the First United Methodist Church, Rebekah Lodge, Cosmos Club, and served on the Stanton County Museum Board.
