The DeAnna Stark Pasciuto Memorial Fund

The DeAnna Stark Pasciuto Memorial Fund memorializes the spirit of DeAnna Stark Pasciuto. Through its giving, it aims to provide comfort and joy to others while serving as a reminder of the power of life.

DeAnna was a kind, generous, outgoing, optimistic, loving, driven, energetic, tenacious, resilient, funny person who was as beautiful inside as she was out…

She had a presence…

Anyone who met her was immediately better off because of it….
She touched people with her kindness and beautiful smile…
More than any other person, De could make your day better by simply saying hello….

As Billy Joel wrote,

She’s got a light around her
And everywhere she goes
A million dreams of love surround her

That was De…That is how she will be remembered…

She would do anything for her family and friends…

She was as welcoming as she was protective…..

She loved to entertain….

Was insanely competitive…

She brightened our lives…

Her laugh was joyous and contagious…

Her humor… often mischievous…

She was always ready with a jab (sometimes literally) or a zing….

And her energy was boundless….

She was as dignified as she was silly…

She had a gleam in her eye…

She never missed an opportunity to lighten the mood…..and that was her gift to all of us…

She showed us how to live….

And…most importantly….she was relentless…

Relentless in how she loved and how she lived….

Relentless in love…..

Relentless in friendship…..

Relentless in caring for others….

Relentless in being a mother…..

A college teammate wrote that DeAnna was “such a kick ass player with an infectious smile.”
