Breanna Nicole Pifano, 20, quietly took her last breath on Monday, September 18, 2023, in Cooperman Barnabas Medical Center, Livingston, NJ.
Relatives and friends are invited to visit at the Thiele-Reid Family Funeral Home, 585 Belgrove Drive, Kearny, NJ on Saturday, September 23 from 1 to 5 p.m. Cremation will be private.
She was born in Belleville, NJ as the firstborn daughter of Italo and Laura Pifano. Breanna grew up in Kearny and was a graduate of Kearny High School's class of 2021. She was attending Montclair State University and was a third year Biology major pursuing the field of Optometry.
Miss Pifano had an extraordinary ability to spread love, joy kindness and hope. Weather it was coaching the young girls' softball team, singing in her church's choir or dedicating herself to charity work with her sorority, Phi Sigma Sigma, to raise awareness in the community.
Her devotion to her faith was evident in the way she loved others as herself. Her gestures were always thoughtful and heartfelt, she genuinely cared.
Breanna always had many dreams and goals. She worked hard and smart to achieve it all. She was determined, reliable and consistent as well as independent. She was extremely responsible, yet she was also a free-spirited electric girl with many passions. Bree was always ready to live and enjoy life to the fullest! She was a simple soul; some would even say an old soul. She appreciated the joys found in simplicity.
Some of the things she loved were singing country music in front of a crowd, dancing, and late-night rides blasting the car radio, and jamming to her favorite songs. She was particularly fond of the Mexican Culture, especially the mariachis. She was also a car enthusiast and would often talk about the dream car she would have some day. She would visit Hoboken as often as possible, where she felt free just by gazing at the NYC skyline. The amusement park roller coasters really brought out her personality out, and she loved going to the gym and learning all types of new circuits.
Most importantly, Breanna loved people, especially her family! She will be forever cherished in the lives of her two younger sister Gabriela Pifano and Alana Donatella Pifano. Bree will live forever in the warmest part of our hearts and memories. Breanna gave the true gift of life as she was a full organ doner.
Breanna loved the Lord Jesus, loved others and made sure we all knew it. Rest in peace sweet Breanna, until we meet again in paradise.
