To know her was to love her; our dear Tianna has tragically and unexpectedly passed into the welcoming embrace of the Lord at the all-too-young age of 22. Indeed, a truly compassionate angel, beloved daughter, best friend, and ‘Baby Girl’ of Kelly Bianco of Woonsocket has left us; may she rest in eternal peace. Her final act of selfless kindness was through organ donation following her passing at Landmark Medical Center on July 16th.
Sometimes outspoken, never socially distant, and always understanding, non-judgemental, and caring, Tianna was generous and trusting. Regarded as a very special, one-of-a-kind woman, she saw the good in everyone she met. Her innate abilities and natural tendencies to protect and minister to others were truly remarkable and especially evident with and among her younger sisters, Kellie-Lyn, and Rylee and Aubree, who were her ‘pride and joy’. She always provided a shoulder to lean on, not only for her family and friends, but to any person or creature in need.
Tianna was ambitious, confident, independent, and hard-working; she thoroughly enjoyed serving customers and interacting with co-workers through her employment at both Dunkin Donuts and Taco Bell in Woonsocket. A bit of a ‘fashionista’, she took particular pride in her gorgeous and luxurious eyelashes – and never left home without them! On the flipside, she was also a bit ‘outdoorsy’, enjoying a variety of activities, especially camping.
She deeply loved her dad, and both cherished time spent together fishing, clamming, and beachcombing. Many fond memories of such outings and those of wonderful trips to Canada and New Hampshire will be forever treasured. Above all else, Tianna will be remembered for her positive and caring attitude, her heart of gold, and her beautiful soul.
Tianna is also survived by her other siblings, Toni, Kendra, Austin, Connor, and Aidan Bianco, and Jasmine Lopes; her step-mother, Devan (Bromley) Bianco; her special cousins, Maria and Steven Obert; and her dear friend, Aimee Lyn Perry.
If Tianna had a farewell message for us, it would likely be found in these words:
“When tomorrow starts without me, please try to understand that an angel came and called my name and took me by the hand. The angel said my place was ready, in heaven far above, and that I’d have to leave behind all those I dearly love. But when I walked through heaven’s gates, I felt so much at home, for God looked down, smiled at me, and said “Welcome Home”. So when tomorrow starts without me, don’t think we’re far apart, for every time you think of me, I’m right there in your heart.”
Arrangements are entrusted to the Berarducci Funeral Home & Cremation Care Center, 185 Spring Street, Woonsocket. A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated at All Saints Church at 323 Rathbun Street in Woonsocket on Monday, July 27th at 10:00 a.m. (Those attending must follow seating and face covering guidelines). In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions directly to the family would be appreciated. A charitable fundraiser in her memory is also being planned for a future date.
