Brianna Elizabeth "Bri" Younce

July 10, 2013 

Brianna Elizabeth "Bri" Younce, daughter of Elizabeth (Betsy) Eichhorn Younce, passed away July 8, 2013 at the tender age of six. Bri was the light of her mama’s life.

She was an instant joy to everyone she met, and she enjoyed her short life to the fullest. Bri possessed unlimited energy and zeal. She powered through life with abandon, pausing to hug, observe, talk, and share along the way. Bri loved all people, appreciated all of nature, and relished in God’s gifts. She never forgot to say she loved you.

Bri is survived by her mother, her grandparents, Betty (Baba) and Charles (Jadek) Younce; her Aunt Lynne and Uncle Petr Bartusek; her crazy cousins, Pearson and Callahan McGovern, and Cayden and Clancy Bartusek. She was especially loved by her many Aunts, Uncles, cousins, and friends.

A celebration of Bri’s life will be held at the United Church of Chapel Hill, 1321 Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd, Chapel Hill, 27514 on Thursday, July 11, 2013 at 11:00 a.m.

Any remembrances of her can be made to the SPCA, 200 Petfinder Lane, Raleigh 27603.
