Bouza, Jenny E.
Jenny Elizabeth Travers Bouza, a sixty year resident of Greenwich, CT, passed away April 14, 2014 surrounded by family at Greenwich Hospital following surgical complications. She was 99 years old. Born on March 10, 1915 to Michael and Bertha Poltzner Travers, Jenny will be remembered for the many stories of her childhood living between New York City and Asbury Park, NJ. In 1954 she moved with her husband, Anthony, and their five children from Brooklyn, NY to a new home in Greenwich, CT. Her most recent residences were at The Mews and Nathaniel Witherell; two places where she made many friends and enjoyed the last five years of her life. Jenny was a talented poet, a lover of astrology, and way ahead of her time when it came to nutrition and vitamin therapy. Captivated with tales of The Titanic, Jenny, in 1996, at the age of 81, was present at the attempted raising of the wreck's hull off Nova Scotia; an adventure she loved to share. Jenny was preceded in death by her husband Anthony Bouza, son John Bouza, and son Steve Bouza. She is survived by her daughter, Tina Nardi Barbadimos (Aris) of Stamford, CT, Joseph Bouza (Ann) of Arlington, VT, Robert Bouza (Cheryl) of Lincolndale, NY, daughter-in-law Estelle Bouza of Norwalk, CT, her thirteen beloved grandchildren and nine great-grandchildren. She is also survived by two brothers, Joseph (Lydia) and Jerry (Judy) Travers of Asbury Park, NJ.
