December 21, 1994 – August 20, 2018
Arianna Dodde passed away on August 20, 2018. She was born on December 21, 1994 in Phoenix, AZ. Arianna graduated from Millennium High School and attended Estrella Mountain Community College. Arianna valued family above everything and her love for her husband and kids was apparent for all to see. She also cherished her time with friends and was kind to strangers who she interacted with daily while at work. Arianna played and excelled in softball throughout her childhood. She loved the beach and she could be found at least 2-3 times every year at Disneyland, a place which held so many fond memories and was truly her “happiest placed on Earth.” Arianna had an insatiable love for donuts. She and Nick even treated the family to a blue cream-filled donut gender reveal recently in which they discovered that their two precious daughters would now have a baby brother to gang up on. She is survived by her husband Nick Dodde, three children Ava Rhae, Analisa Rose & Adrian Paul, parents Paula Lopez, Robert Mendoza & Vince Garcia, grandparents Esther Rodriguez, Arturo & Gloria Mendoza and Maria Garcia, brother Xavier Mendoza and two sisters Victoria Garcia & Elianna Mendoza. Arianna is also survived by aunts Aimee Umble, Cynthia Lopez, Jannita Mendoza, Mari Mercado & Lysandra Wisrock, uncles Lance Umble, Jeffrey Lopez, Art Mendoza, Jr. & Ray Wisrock, cousins Emilio Oliverio, Phoebe Oliverio, Millie Joy Oliverio, Keira Umble, Carson Umble, Anissa Wisrock, Nathan Wisrock, Marcos Mercado & Katrina Mercado, in-laws Paul & Nancy Dodde, sisters-in-law Allison Ehlebracht, Kim Rivera and brother-in-law Chris Dodde. She was preceded in death by Paul Lopez, Florence Rodriguez, Andrea Rincon, Jorge Vasquez & Petronillo Rodriguez. Family and friends are invited to a viewing on Wednesday, August 29, 2018 from 5-8 PM at West Resthaven Funeral Home, 6450 W. Northern Avenue, Glendale.

I met Arianna about 7 years ago and have known her through her workplace. over the years she has told me about her family and her whole face would just light up. she was so excited about the blue filling in the doughnuts and about her growing family. I just want her family to know she touched many lives. She treated everyone like a friend and she was a wonderful person. I will miss her and I am deeply sorry for your loss.

Arianna is someone who I truly look up to. When she had Ava I sat on their couch every week and watched her be the best mom she possibly could’ve been. And when my time comes to be a mother I know she will be guiding me from above. I will forever cherish those memories and what I learned from her. I will do my best to keep my head high to be there for your beautiful family Ari. Rest easy up there angel
