Our classmate Renee transitioned on December 30, 1997.

Dr. Martilla Renee Jones Beatty was a shining light in so many lives. She excelled at Spelman College as a pre-med student and we shared the experience of joining Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc. She married my childhood friend, Otto Beatty, in a beautiful ceremony where I stood by her side as a bridesmaid. She went on to become a gifted OB-GYN and brought life into this world 100 times over before her own life was cut way too short. She had an infectious laugh and always looked for ways to support her friends but especially her three siblings and parents. She is missed everyday. - Elizabeth Espy
