Vanessa Tapetillo Memorial Fund

Our sister, Vanessa Tapetillo was taken from our family on 5/8/2015 along side the love of her life Juan Barragan.  Because someone was careless and put himself behind the wheel of his truck while intoxicated our lives have been changed forever. She leaves behind two beautiful children ages 10 and 6. Vanessa loved her children with everything she had. She would do anything for them. We would like to set this account up to raise funds for her final funeral expenses. Any funds that exceed the cost of her funeral would go directly into an account for her children, one that she has set up for them since they were born. Vanessa was a smart, funny, charasmatic and would be pleased with the outpouring of condolences her family has recieved in recent days. She was a devoted soccer, karate, baseball, basketball and girl scout mom. She leaves behind her two children, Mother and step-father, father and step-mother, two sisters, a brother, 7 nephews, and two neices, one of which is her goddaughter. She will be missed by everyone who knew her.
