(Iron Man IV#1 - BTS) - Mrs. Rennie called Stark, who'd holed himself up in his garage for days, and reminded him of all the work he had to do. She woke him up and he treated her rather rudely, but she retorted with sarcasm and a reminder of his sense of duty.  Later, Stark called Rennie to have her arrange travel for him.

(Iron Man IV#13) - Mrs. Rennie and Happy Hogan watched as Stark recorded a public service announcement in favor of the Super Human Registration Act. She had to keep shushing Hogan during the take. She then reminded Stark of all of his upcoming appointments.

(Iron Man: The Inevitable#1) - Rennie Emailed Stark to remind him about his scheduled charity event that evening. She showed up in an evening gown with him, but was quickly unimpressed by the boring event. She commented that her husband was much more honest than any of them, including the haughty Grace and Sinclair Abbott. Rennie chided Stark for checking his cell phone during the party. Two days later, Rennie Emailed Stark to remind him about his appointment with Maggie Dillon.

(Iron Man: The Inevitable#2 - BTS) - Stark copied Rennie in an Email regarding a meeting he called with all the security heads, where Iron Man discussed new security systems.

(Iron Man: The Inevitable#5 - BTS) - Rennie sent Stark an Email to remind him of his daily schedule and of his date with Grace Martin. She had to remind him of the date again later.

(Iron Man IV#23 - BTS) - Stark contacted Rennie to have her airfreight his classic car to him. She was shocked as he hadn't driven it in so long, but agreed to do so. He told her to use a cover story, claiming he was on vacation, though she suspected he wasn't.

(Iron Man IV#24) - Mrs. Rennie called to inform Stark on the progress of his car's shipment, and informed him that Dr. Leonard Samson had been trying to reach him but that she'd made excuses for him.
