Breanne L. Vazquez
August 23, 1978 - March 03, 2018
Devoted Mother of 3 Will Be Dearly MissedBreanne L. Vazquez, a devoted mother and life-long resident of Tampa, FL, passed away on March 3, 2018 at the age of 39 following a long battle with porphyria and multiple autoimmune disorders.
Breanne was born in Tampa on August 23, 1978 to Shanri Nolan and Ruben Alvarez. She grew up as a member of the Seventh-Day Adventist Church and attended Tampa Juinor Academy (now Tampa Adventist Academy) all through her childhood. Breanne's family was everything to her; she was a loving wife of 18 years to her husband, Michael and a beautiful mother to her three children. She was amazing with babies and children and her tender-hearted manner touched all who met her. Breanne has dealt with chronic illness and the affects of porphyria and other autoimmune disorders for more than a decade. She persevered through multiple surgeries and medical procedures always with Gabriel, Gracie, and Griffin in the forefront of her mind. She will be remembered as a kind and loving wife, aunt, mother, and daughter. Her life was cut short, but her family will cherish the many loving memories they have made together.
Breanne is survived by her parents, Shanri Nolan and Rocky Alvarez; her husband, Michael Vazquez; her children, Gabriel, Gracyn, and Griffin Vazquez; her brother and sister-in-law, Cory and Melanie Alvarez; her sister and brother-in-law, Amber and Noldy Rodriguez; her half-sisters, Chrissy Warren and Ashley Alvarez; her grandmother, Jean Pierce; her aunt, Desiree Borbolla; and many beloved nieces, nephews and cousins. She is predeceased by her grandfather, Jim Pierce, and her brother, Ryan Alvarez, who's life was cut short just over two months earlier in a motorcycle accident.
The family asks for prayers for strength to get through these multiple tragedies with a special focus on the five young children (between Breanne and her brother Ryan) that are now without their mother (Gabriel, Gracie, and Griffin) and father (Olivia and Caleb). A service will be held in honor of Breanne at Tampa First Seventh-day Adventist Church, Sunday, March 11, 2018 at 3:00 pm.
Breanne, you fought hard all the way to the end. Your pain and suffering are over and now you can rest. We will treasure each precious memory you have left us with. We will miss you dearly, sweet Bibi.
