Renata Owsiany: 1981 - 2018 | Obituary
Renata joined Fluid as an enthusiastic Contracts Manager in early Sept 2014.
She made an instant impression; on her staff and with the customer. A gentle, reassuring and genuinely disarming disposition propelled Renata onto the progressive path of her managerial career. This wasn’t to say that she was soft: not a bit. Renata was firm when needed, always strong and sure.
She was forging a real reputation as an accomplished operator; widely regarded by her peers and bosses, loved by her staff and respected by the customer.
Renata’s career continued to flourish and as the business enjoyed a sustained period of growth, opportunities were becoming available to the better performers within Fluid. Her performance and potential was not going unnoticed by her manager, Mariusz Drab, and in time she was being primed for a Regional Managers position.
However, in early 2017, she was delivered the crushing news that she had cancer. Renata, forever the brave battler, was having none of it and decided the chemotherapy she was about to engage with, needed a large chunk of will power also. In the autumn of 2017, Renata was definitely winning her battle and with a view to returning to work, she met with her bosses to discuss options. All was agreed and in the new year, the new, refreshed, clear of cancer Renata would return as Regional Manager.
But only two months in and the stress was beginning to show. Or so we thought. As it was clearly more than stress. After resigning her position, she entered hospital days later. It was confirmed on Thursday 15th March that she had lost her battle…and, tragically, her life.
Renata was with us long enough to have made a huge impression. She will live long in the memory of colleagues, peers, staff and customers alike.
Her smile and presence will be greatly missed by us all.
Renata is survived by her partner, Robert, and her two children.
The company will honour Renata’s memory in numerous ways with one important one being the renaming the Directors award. This will become The Renata Owsiany Award for Spirit & Endeavour, which will be one the companies most prestigious awards at the annual end of year awards (each Dec).
