This page has been setup on behalf of Frank Nalepa, whose wife, Vanessa, passed away on February 16, 2019. Vanessa had an amazing smile, infectious laugh, and the ability to make everyone around her feel loved. She was fiercely devoted to her son, Davis (7 months), and her husband, Frank. Vanessa was loyal to her friends and family. She touched the lives of her students with her creativity and passion for teaching. Vanessa’s fun-loving nature drew others to her. She will be missed by all who had the privilege of knowing her. Vanessa had been battling breast cancer since September 2018, and died of complications of an infection. As the family begins to think about the future for Davis, funds will be put away for his education. Any amount you can donate will help. Additional information concerning a funeral will be posted when that information is available.
