Passed peacefully in her sleep on Friday, March 10, 2023 at the age of 74

after her long journey with dementia. Sally had her 3 children surrounding her with love and warm memories for her final hours.

Sally was born one of four children of Henry and Mary Renteria in Las Angeles, California.

Eventually Sally made her way across the country and landed in Western Pennsylvania with her husband Denis Ranalli and her 3 children Christy, Jeff and Jessica.

Sally was always the life of the party with a deep love of music and friends and all things purple, spreading white light and smiles wherever she went.

Sally is survived by her brothers Henry(Virginia) Renteria and Adam(Martha. ) Renteria and her sister Evelyn(Henry) Castillo. Her children Christy(Michael Green), Jeff (Dawn) Ranalli and Jessica(Nathan) Moran. Her grandchildren Trey, Olivia, Jayde, Aria, Rebekka, Eva, Eden and Kira as well as 2 great grand children Raiden and Theia.

Sally was preceded in death by her parents Henry and Mary Renteria and her Husband Denis Ranalli.

The family would also like to thank the wonderful staff and caregivers at Sunshine Village Memory Care facility in Phoenix for their warmth, love, and patience while caring for our mom. We are forever grateful.
