Bianca M. Ruiz (Bailey), 29, of Green Bay, passed away Thursday April 30, 2020 at St. Mary’s Hospital. Bianca was born on October 1, 1990, in Green Bay to Faron Bailey and the late Yvonne Reyes. She was a great cook who always loved making new dishes. She enjoyed listening to music, watching movies, hanging out with friends and most importantly spending time with her two children-Bianca’s children were everything to her.
Bianca married her soul mate Miguel Ruiz in 2012 and they had two beautiful children. Bianca graduated from Menominee Indian High School in Keshena in 2013. She was a fighter who battled Leukemia for three years. Bianca never let this get her down always having a smile on her face. She was fearless, strong, tough, and always fought through the pain with a smile on her face. Her presence will be greatly missed by everyone especially her children whom she loved. Fly high our beautiful Baby, you’re dearly missed and will be loved forever and always.
