Memorial service planned for Renee Pernice - KCTV5 News

Memorial service held for Renee Pernice

Posted: Updated:

More than three years after her disappearance, the family of Renee Pernice held a celebration of life memorial service for the murdered mother of two.

Pernice's family announced the plans in an obituary in the Kansas City Star at the beginning of September. They said her boys, just 6 and 8 at the time of their mother's death, have really struggled after learning their father, Shon Pernice, admitted to killing her back in January 2009.

Pernice's body has never been found.

But Saturday's memorial service was about remembering Pernice and supporting her two sons.

"They needed to see that there were so many people who have been such a support for the family," mother Linda Lockwood said.

The service was held Saturday at the Pierson Community Center in Kansas City, KS.
