Brianna graduated Buckhannon-Upshur High School class of 2009. She was a very free spirited and artistic individual. She really enjoyed cooking, being outdoors, listening to music, dancing, her tattoos and dying her hair which was like her personality bright and colorful. At a young age, she was very caring with both her parents during their illnesses, even up to the very end. Brianna had a very independent lively spirit which will be missed by all who knew her especially the infectious laugh and smile that would light up a room.
