Renee, a graduate from Ambridge High School, married in 1958 and moved to New Cumberland, West Virginia where she and her husband Steve raised their family. Initially a stay at home mom, Renee, once the children were of age, returned to the work force as a legal secretary at a local law firm where she worked until retirement in 1994.

Renee was preceded in death by her husband Stephen J. (Steve) Kuzio. A marriage of nearly 60 years until his passing in 2018.

Upon Renee’s retirement, she fulfilled the dream of she and her husband, and moved to Florida in 1994. Warm weather, the sun, and the beach awaited their adventures.

Renee, a member of Sacred Heart Catholic Church, loved attending and always sitting near the choir. Quite the sports enthusiast, she was passionate about the Tampa Bay Rays and Lightning. She enjoyed the company of her grandchildren, the beach, playing bingo, computer gaming, shopping and relaxing with family and friends.
