Arianna Florence, 19, Green Bay, passed away September 7, 2018, of an unexpected illness surrounded by Mom, Dad, and her brothers and sisters. Born on May 31, 1999, she is the daughter of Brad and Candi (Wery) Florence.
Arianna came into this world with a serious medical condition which she fought head on. Through those struggles she learned the values of courage, strength and perseverance which embodied her inner essence in her later years. Despite those struggles, she had a positive outlook and enjoyed life. Arianna had a huge network of friends and she touched many hearts along the way. Arianna had the ability to light up any room with her smile and dry sense of humor. Her friends and family meant the world to her. She especially enjoyed Dunkin Donuts - “French Vanilla iced coffee, three sugars, three creams.”
Arianna is a 2018 graduate of Preble High School and was involved in Culinary Arts and a member of the tennis team. She was proudly employed by Festival Foods working in the Bakery Department, as well as a Bagger and Cashier, fine-tuning her hard work ethic. She had recently started her college education at NWTC in pursuit of her degree in Graphic Design. In her spare time Arianna enjoyed swimming, photography, and hanging out in Florenceville. Arianna loved to travel with her parents, especially to Florida, but her favorite place was always home. Arianna achieved many successes and every day on this earth was a blessing, yet she left too soon on her journey to heaven.
