Brianna was a beautiful, vibrant, full-of-life, fun-loving, hopeless romantic – who loved her RomComs – and loved people. She devoted her life to helping people feel better about themselves mentally, emotionally, and physically.

She developed many beautiful friendships with anyone she came into contact with. She always had a smile on her face, a ready laugh, and a hug when needed. She would always give you her smile if you couldn’t find your own. 

Funeral Services will begin Wednesday, September 25, 2019 at 10:00 am. at the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints Church, 3931 W 45th Street, Casper, WY 82604. There will no viewing. Burial will follow at Wyoming Memorial Gardens.
