Brianna Marie Vazza, 23

TEWKSBURY - Brianna Marie Vazza, age 23, died unexpectedly on Thursday, March 5, at Lowell General Hospital’s, Saints Campus.

She was born in Lowell, on September 23, 1991, the daughter of Anthony Joseph Vazza of Tewksbury and Ana Beatriz Mendieta of Mexico. She was raised in Tewksbury and graduated Tewksbury Memorial High School with the Class of 2010. She went on to pass her Certified Nursing Assistant board certification, and was working at Emeritus in Tewksbury.

Brianna was kind and caring, always there to make you laugh and smile when you were down. She was always the first to befriend the new kid in the class, always the first to befriend the outcast and help them fit in. She was so special and didn’t realize that. Many lives will never be the same because she won’t be there. She will always be in our hearts and never forgotten.

Besides her mom and dad, she leaves paternal grandparents, Anthony and Denise (Griffin) Vazza of Tewksbury, with whom she resided, Carmella Gazanno of Chelsea; maternal grandparents, Antonio Mendieta of Lowell and Anne Mendieta-Sanchez of Medford; her siblings, Nick Lascola of Malden, Bobby Lascola of No. Billerica, Tatianna Arpin of Chelmsford, Savanna Mendieta of Medford, and Alesha Howe of Tewksbury; many aunts, uncles, and cousins.

Relatives and friends will be received Tuesday, March 10, from 4:00 until 7:00 p.m. in the Tewksbury Funeral Home, corner of 1 Dewey and 975 Main Sts. (Rte. 38) TEWKSBURY CENTER, Ph..
