Briana Dawn Pasco

Briana Dawn Pasco, beloved daughter of James and Mindy Pasco, and Karrie and Eric Marschall died December 16, 2018 in Vancouver, WA. She was born in Oceanside, CA and graduated from Prairie High School in 2016 and attended Clark College in 2018. She most recently worked as a Preschool teacher.
Briana was kind to everyone she met, often complimenting them just to see them smile. She created an online profile in high school for people to anonymously compliment each other, just to try and help improve somebody else’s day. Briana loved with her whole heart. She had a tattoo with the word Agape’ which means the highest form of love - to love with your whole heart without expectation of receiving anything in return.
Briana enjoyed watching Beaver basketball and football with her dad, always dressing the part and cheering for whatever team he was rooting for.
She was a talented singer and loved to sing and attend concerts with friends and family. Music was a huge part of who she was and she would belt out songs at the top of her lungs. Briana was in choir during school, sang the National Anthem at a Prairie High School basketball game, did a lovely duet and participated in the Mr. & Ms. Prairie talent show.
She loved road trips to the beach, doing photo shoots with her friends and siblings, and her puppy, Willow.
Briana had great relationships with all of her siblings. She was very close to her brother Trenton and she was maid of honor at her sister Hailey’s wedding last June. There was a sibling rivalry with her brother Kenzie, but he was always there to protect her and she loved her “little buddy”. She let them know she loved them all the time. She also had a very special bond with her little sister Lexy, who she referred to as her ’mini-me’. They did sister sleepovers and would binge watch shows on Netflix.
Briana will forever be missed and
we will continue to carry on her memory forever.
She was preceded in death by her great-great-uncle, Bill Breeding; and GG Helen Fuller.
Briana is survived by her father and bonus mom, James and Mindy Pasco of Vancouver; mother and stepfather, Karrie and Eric Marschall of Medford, OR; brother and his fiance, Trenton Mustain and Krista Ortiz; sister and brother-in-law, Hailey and Chris Flanary; brother and his girlfriend, Kenzie Rinehart and Kanyka Khiaw; sister, Lexy Pasco; grandparents, Patti and Greg Hutchison, Ken and Lou Wagner, Jackie Wagner, Laura and Gary Murphy, George and Carolyn Marschall, Joe and Lois Pasco and Vicky Guererro. She will be missed also by the love of her life, Gabe York; her best and longest friends, Daisy Brandt and Amber Wager; her puppy, Willow; as well as numerous aunts, uncles, cousins and countless friends.
A Memorial Service will be held Saturday, January 19, 2019 at 11:00 a.m. at Living Hope Church, 2711 NE Andresen Rd., Vancouver. There will be a small private gathering for family and close friends following the service at a secondary location.

Miss Bri, I'm still trying to understand. I met you once. Spoke with you for 15 minutes. I could see just how special you were, how much you loved people, how kind you were. I'm so sorry this world couldn't keep you. I'm so sad you weren't able to see all those wonderful things others saw in you. You were loved. Karrie and Trenton, prayers for strength and comfort for you and your families.
