Jianna was 23 years old when she passed, she had lived in Davenport, Iowa for the last two years. Jianna Menapace was born on August 21, 1995 in Rock Springs, Wyoming. From an early age Jianna displayed a strength and independence that would serve her well later in life.

Jianna was an extremely intelligent girl who developed a love of reading and writing and would end up ghost writing over 50 short stories and books for other writers. She also published 4 books in her short life and was working on a fifth when she passed. Jianna’s love of writing was closely matched by her love of animals. From a young age Jianna would devise plans to bring home stray cats and dogs. When she moved out the first thing she did was adopt 2 dogs who became like her kids. Jianna touched the lives of everyone she met. She would always be complimented on her infectious smile and positive attitude. Jianna will be missed by everyone that knew her and the world is a lonelier place without her.
