Renza leaves behind her cherished grandchildren Chris (Cindy) Ius, Stephanie Ius, Lindsay and Logan Frame. She was predeased by her husband Ivo in 1987.
A consummate mother and homemaker, Renza was an excellent cook and enjoyed preparing meals for her family and friends. She also enjoyed gardening and took special pride in her beautiful roses. She was most content when surrounded with the laughter of her loved ones. She was a strong woman who was very generous with her love. She will be sorely missed by those who grieve her. Some die without having really lived, while others continue to live, in spite of the fact that they have died. She will always have a place in the hearts of the people who were fortunate enough to have loved her as she truly was an unforgettable woman. She was a member of the Sisters of Columbo and the CWL in Trail.
