Prusso

Jan. 10, 1967 — Dec. 9, 2012

Anjanette Renee Prusso, 45, passed away Sunday, December 9, 2012, surrounded by her loving family and close friends, at the NorthBay Medical Center in Fairfield after fighting a courageous battle with breast cancer.

Renee was born January 10, 1967, in Santa Rosa, Calif., to Rudolph and Carmen Meza. She grew up in Santa Rosa before making her home in Fairfield.

She was the beloved mother to Elissa, Samantha, Brandon and Alexis.  They were the loves of her life. She is also survived by the children’s dad, Mark; her mother, Carmen; her father, Rudolph; sisters, Yvonne, Yvette, Bernadette and Rachel; brothers, Rudy and Ricky; and her in-laws, Dennis and Judy. Renee was also survived by Gene, Dianne, Alexandra, Angelica and Sharon who loved and cherished her.  She is also survived by many aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, cousins, close friends and many close co-workers.

She found her love of Christ and was an active member of Solano Valley Church. She was always saying “we are so blessed.” She loved her Bible Study sisters.

She worked many years as a waitress for Pelayo’s Restaurants in Vacaville and Fairfield, and Red Lobster in Fairfield.  She found her calling and her passion in life when she started working eight years ago at Mission Solano and the Bridge to Life.  She had a special gift for helping people achieve their goals. She was attending Solano College to complete her AA degree to be a case manager.

She was a selfless, caring, loving mother, daughter, sister, aunt, and friend and will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved her.

At Renee’s request, memorials may be sent to Solano Valley Church Benevolence Fund, 1307 Oliver Road, Fairfield, CA 94534 or Mission Solano, 740 Travis Blvd., Fairfield, CA 94533.

Friends and family are invited to a memorial service at 1 p.m., Saturday, December 15, 2012, at Solano Valley Church, 1307 Oliver Road, Fairfield, Calif. Arrangements are under the care of Bryan-Baker Funeral Home, 425-4697.

    Renee, your compassion and love of people are the greatest legacies you left all who remember you. There are many who have come and gone through Mission Solano with a clearer picture of who Jesus is because of you. You will see many who have, and will, enter eternity because of the life you lived. You will and are missed, Ron

    Aunty Nae, you are on my mind everyday of the week. you were a great loss but sad that it had to be you. Your joy and happiness will live on within us and you spirit will watch over us. I remember as a young boy you always told me " Your a Swell Guy ", i will never forget those words... i can still hear your voice saying them but knoe im never going to hear them again. There was only one of you. theres no way the could have been two. im never going to have an aunty like you again. You will be known forever for the tracks you left." When You Come To The End Of The Road & The Sun Has Set For You, You Want No Rights In A Gloomed-Filled Room, Why Cry For A Soul Set Free? I'll Miss You But Not Too Long. And Not With Our Heads Bowed Low. Remember That Love We Once Shared, Ill Miss You But I Have To Let Go. For This Is A Journey We All Must Take And Each Must Go Alone. It's All A Part Of The Master's Plan, A Step On The Road Home. When You Are Lonely And Sick Of Heart, Go To The Friends We Know And Bury Your Sorrows In Doing Good Deeds. I'll Miss You BUt I Have To Let You Go!" R.I.P Aunty Nae, gone but not forgotten you live withn my heart I Love You.. Ill always be your swell guy.
