Arianna Danielle Serrano, age 20, daughter, sister, granddaughter, niece, and friend passed away on the afternoon of October 21st 2022 . Arianna was born on June 29th, 2002 in Wildomar, California to Donnalyn and Jose Serrano. Ari grew up in Temecula and Moreno Valley, California and then moved to South Jordan, Utah in 2014. She moved to Lehi, Utah in 2016.
Ari enjoyed singing, swimming, spending time with her friends, family and her dogs - Ginger and Cookie. While finding herself she tried several different jobs. She was employed at the local Aquarium, she was a nanny, a swim instructor for a youth swim school, she worked at the Megaplex movie theater, Target, DoorDash/UberEats/Postmates, Amazon Distribution Center, The Nightmare on 13th haunted house, Walgreens, Nike, Sweet Serranos, and lastly Fluent Solar. Ari was always a team player and was considered a valuable asset to every team she was a part of. Most importantly, she was the shining star of our team…she was indeed The Sweetest Serrano.
There are so many things we can say about the kindness she shared. She was the best listening ear, was accepting of everyone, and was so giving even though she didn’t have much at times.
Ari loved Broadway musicals, watching makeup tutorials, gaming, YouTube videos, and making Tik Toks. She also loved playing FortNite with her dad, brother, and Uncle Fabian and Aunt Lindsay.
She was a free spirit and cleared her own path. She was rebellious and embraced change. She was not scared of the world, she went into it head on and even moved to California to self explore and complete a Pharmacy Technician program after she graduated from high school and turned 18.
Ari had an inspirational amount of confidence and it showed! She rocked every hair color pushing boundaries and creating stares. She didn’t care. She just wanted to be herself - full of life, excitement, and sparkle. She was so courageous and daring and had the most contageous smile. Our Ari was so beautiful inside and out.
Ari and Jose had the best Father/Daughter bond. They told jokes only they would get and even had a secret handshake. They called each other Bro/Bruh. She was so funny; even funnier is that she laughed at her own jokes like her Dad. They could spend hours watching reruns of old cartoons and playing FortNite yelling at the TV.
Ari and her brother Joseph shared their birthday celebrations every year. Neither of them complained being that their birthdays are just 2 days apart, June 27th and June 29th. They also had a special bond. They supported each other emotionally and shared the same interests: FortNite, Anime, music, and Nike shoes just to name a few.
Ari and Donna also had a special bond. Ari was exactly ½ of Donna’s age this year. Ari and Donna grew and learned a lot of life lessons together. They explored fashion, makeup, and a love for music and silly dances.
Our family was started so young thus allowing us four to bond in our early years. We had a fun loving family bond that can be seen and felt without even knowing us.
We will miss her infectious presence more than imaginable. We know that she is smiling down on us, sad that we are hurting so much without her. She was such a helpful and caring person, who rarely complained about anything. We are devastated that she passed so young without becoming the independent woman she tried so hard to be. All of us were blessed to have known our Arianna.
Ari is survived by so many who loved her. Her parents, Donnalyn and Jose Serrano; her brother Joseph Serrano; Grandmother Arsenia Spracklin, Grandmother and Grandfather Irma and Jose Yuque, Aunts and Uncles Kenneth and Heather Spracklin, Fabian and Lindsay Yuque, Peter and Jannet Yuque, Elizabeth and Ernesto Torres, Diana Serrano DePedro, Great Aunt Laura Quiroz, Great Aunt and Uncle Gabriel and Linda Quiroz, Great Aunt and Uncle Mike and Christine Spracklin and all her wonderful cousins Kaipo, Kekoa, Ashlynn, Emiliano, Anberlin, Leon, Kenzie, Nico, and Violet. She was also loved by her extended Spracklin, Quiroz, Borja, and Preciado family. She was loved by her many friends. She was loved by ALL who met her.
May our Beautiful Arianna rest in eternal peace.
