Renee LaVonne Ball-Farmer, 40, Washington, D.C. (formerly of St. Mary's County,MD

40, Washington, D.C. (formerly of St. Mary's County,MD

Born: 12/23/1971, Passed On: 04/22/2012

Renee LaVonne Ball-Farmer, 40, Washington, D.C. (formerly of St. Mary's County,MDRenee LeVonne Ball Farmer, 40, of Washington, D.C., (formerly of St. Mary's County, MD), passed away on April 22, 2012 at George Washington Hospital, Washington, D.C.
Renee was born and raised in St. Mary's County, MD, to the late Joan Leona Langley Ball and the late Carroll Fenwick on December 23, 1971. She graduated from Green Holly School in 1991. After graduation, Renee moved to Charles County, MD, and lived in the Freedom Landing Group Home where she met and married James William Farmer on May 9, 1997. They later divorced in 2011. Renee bore no children from their union but she adored her step-children/grandchildren and accepted them as her own.
Renee was a selfless, giving, and loving person. She enjoyed telling jokes and bragging on her mom's cooking because she considered her to be the greatest cook. Whenever Renee dressed up she would always ask, "don't I look good?" She would give the clothes off her back to someone in need. She could not help herself where children were concerned. If a child needed her, she would jump through hoops to do what she could for that child. We fondly remember the many times she offered assistance to people she just met and then brought their children to our homes. She would always tell the family, "I'm just like my mom. She loved people and would help anyone." It's no surprise that she put herself last in everything she did. Renee just couldn't help herself in terms of her giving nature, even when at times it meant she went without. Her selflessness and kind heart were evident upon her death as she donated her eyes, kidneys, and liver to someone in need. Renee's life exemplified the phrase "I am my brother's keeper".
Renee leaves to cherish her precious memory two step-children, Tonina Miles of Lexington Park, MD, and Erica Farmer of Benedict, MD; three siblings, Sheryl S. Ball (Bernard) of Lexington Park, MD, Bernard S. Ball, Jr. (Adonica) of Clinton, MD, and Monique E. Mann (Steven) of Winston-Salem, NC; three step-grandchildren, Mariona Bowman, Brandon Young, Jr., and Jordan Young of Lexington Park, MD; one aunt, Mary E. Carroll-Richardson of Lanham, MD, one uncle, James R. Langley (GlynisHope) of Temple Hills, MD; a special friend Paul Martin of Washington, DC; and a host of other relatives and friends.

Family and friends will unite on Tuesday, May 1, 2012 for visitation from 10:00 am until time of Mass at 11:00 am at St. Peter Claver Church, St. Inigoes, MD. Interment will be private.
