Bianca Lizette Tapia (1989-2022)

It is with heavy heart we announce that Bianca Lizette Tapia was tragically taken from us in a car accident on March 2, 2022. Because of the senseless act of a drunk driver, her life ended in the blink of an eye. Our family is completely heartbroken and devastated. We know things will never be the same from this immense and painful loss.
Bianca was a kind, loving, intelligent woman. She lit up any room she walked in and her energy was always beaming through her every smile. Bianca had always found different ways of expressing herself. She enjoyed painting, dancing, singing karaoke, and playing trivia games and never hesitated to ask everyone to join her. She also loved cooking for her family and friends, her home cooked meals always made you full with love. Bianca was always such a strong, selfless and beautiful soul. We are so blessed to have shared 33 wonderful years with her, full of laughter, warm embraces and everlasting love that will be greatly missed by her family and friends. We will never forget how brilliant her soul shined through to luminate everyone around her and, most special of all, how much she inspired everyone to love unconditionally and endlessly.
