According to birth index her mother's surname was Malena.
I think this is the marriage info for her parents
Name: Lee W Fryer
Event Type: Marriage
Event Date: 15 Jan 1960
Event Place: Imperial, California
Birth Year (Estimated): 1920
Spouse's Name: Helena R Malena
Spouse's Name Prefix:
Spouse's Name Suffix:

Helena R Malena also listed as Helena R Schmuhl. I'm guessing that Malena is maiden name, Schmuhl is surname of a previous husband.
Her father Lee William Fryer was born 21 October 1919 and died 18 November 2007 in Upland. He may have been born in Oklahoma. In 1920 and 1930 censuses he was in Oklahoma, in 1940 he is already in California as a lodger.
Here Lee W Fryer is on the 1920 census:
SELF Dennis C Fryer M 36y Kentucky
WIFE Martha H Fryer F 36y Iowa
DAU Florence Fryer F 13y Oklahoma
SON Alfred Fryer M 10y Oklahoma
SON Lynn Fryer M 8y Oklahoma

DAU Matilda Fryer F 5y Oklahoma
DAU Marie Fryer F 5y Oklahoma
DAU Myrtie Fryer F 3y10m Oklahoma
SON Albert Fryer M 2y Oklahoma
SON Lee Fryer M 2m Oklahoma
by 1930 the household is:
Head D C Fryer M 38 Kentucky
Son Lynn Fryer M 19 Oklahoma
Son J C Fryer M 17 Oklahoma
Daughter Marie Fryer F 16 Oklahoma
Daughter Miteldia Fryer F 16 Oklahoma
Daughter Myrtie Fryer F 15 Oklahoma
Son Albert Fryer M 13 Oklahoma
Son Lee Fryer M 10 Oklahoma
Daughter Gladys Fryer F 8 Oklahoma
Out of all of Lee Fryer's (Renee Marie Fryer's Father) many siblings, the only one still living is Ms. Gladys Fryer Kennedy who lives in Colorado Springs. As far as I can tell Renee Marie never had any children of her own and I did not try to dig deeper into her mother's (Helena Ruth Malena Fryer) ancestry since it was easier to concentrate my search on her father's side since names are less likely to change with males than with females. I will message Raine with contact information for Ms. Gladys.
