Obituary for Renza Bartlett

Renza Bartlett, born July 2, 1930 in Rome, Italy to Josephine and Renzo Marsali has died at the age of 89 years old, on January 8, 2020 in Pensacola, Florida.
Renza grew up in Italy during WWII with her brothers (Geraldo and Franco) and her sister (Anna Maria). Her father died when she was very young and she was raised by her wonderful mother, Nona Pepe.
Renza met the love of her life, Frank Bartlett in Naples while on holiday with a friend. They had a long-distance courtship between the US and Italy. Renza whom Frank called (his cara) corresponded with the help of a nun who translated for them. They soon married and Frank moved Renza (accompanied with a U.S. Senate Bill written specifically for them (S. 2596/S. 1244)) to the United States to continue his Navy career. Renza was a strong and resilient woman who moved to a foreign country not speaking English nor being able to drive. She moved numerous times with Frank and four small children throughout his military and traveling sales career.
She learned to drive at 46 years old and started a career in the hotel industry. She overcame many challenges and obstacles throughout her life. Renza handled life with strength and stubbornness, and a funny and quirky sense of humor.
Renza was loved by all her family and those who had the opportunity to meet her. She will be missed dearly. She is survived by her children, Frank, Angela, Gloria and Rene, her grandchildren, Nathaniel, Zachary, Zoe, Chloe and Eli and the joy of her life, her little dog, Scooter.
