MARRELLI, Ariana Vittoria
On Wednesday, September 16, 2015, Ariana Vittoria Marrelli (19 months) joined her niece, Camri (14 months), in their heavenly home only 5 weeks apart. Blessed they are to be safe in the arms of Jesus. Ariana’s life was special, in that even though she could do little physically, the love she generated extended much further than family, friends, and caregivers.
Ariana leaves behind many wonderful caregivers that provided love, prayers, and support that enhanced her quality of life. She was cared for deeply by Patti, Victoria, Suzie, Taylor, and Shelby. Ariana’s pediatrician, Dr. Dhunnoo; therapists, Eryn, Marian, and Ariana’s Auntie Kyung (RN), were precious and invaluable as well. Words cannot express the gratitude of her family.
Ariana will be lovingly remembered by her parents, Fiore and Heather (Brzak) Marrelli; her siblings, Ashley (Max) Aho, Alyssa, Marco, Mariah, and Antonio; her nephew, Crio Aho; her great-grandmother, Erminia Guercio (age 101); her grandparents, Ken and Sue Ann Brzak, and Maria Marrelli; her uncles and aunts, Kevin Brzak, Stephanie (Ryan) Pomedli, Keith Brzak (Kyungran Park), Joe (Janet) Marrelli, Marisa (Mauro) Pazienza, Vittoria (Brian) O’Neill; her cousins, Joey, Anthony (Madison), Angela and Tysen Marrelli, Jon and Dan McDonald, Hailey and Kyra Brzak, Gage, Mica, and Kain Pomedli. She was predeceased by her Nano, Gennaro Marrelli; her uncle, Wade McDonald; her niece, Camri Aho; and cousin, Michael McDonald.
