Brianna was a person who selflessly chose to live her life in the love of the people she cared for most. Brianna’s strongest qualities came out in the most emergent times and her personality flourished when it came to helping others in need. Her immense strength was used most to protect and stand up for her family and friends who couldn’t do it themselves. Brianna was a loyal daughter, friend and mother. Brianna's life will be remembered by many, as someone who will fight a fly if it harms someone she loves. Brianna earned her High School Diploma at Jay M. Robinson High school in 2005. Her passion was to serve others and put a smile on strangers faces. Brianna loved spending time on Assateague Island beach with her mother and daughter, going for walks on the Ocean City boardwalk and taking long walks around her neighborhood with her family.
Brianna was loved by many people from North Carolina to Pennsylvania. Friendships and immediate bonds came instantly to Brianna and those friendships were carried close to her heart for the duration of her life. Brianna will be carried on through the life of her daughter, family and friends. Brianna's fight in this world is over and she may finally rest in peace for eternity. Her life will be cherished and she will be remembered as a hero through the donation of her organs to those in need.
