Breanna “Bre” Jean Paladino, age 27. Beloved daughter of Tom and Michele (nee Motta) Paladino and cherished sister of Brian and Michael, sadly passed away January 4, 2017 after a courageous battle with melanoma. Bre graduated from Naperville Central High School in 2007, then earned a Bachelors Degree in PR and Advertising in 2011 from DePaul University. She loved living in Chicago, while developing her passion for music and photography. After graduation, Bre moved to Napa, CA where she applied her creative photography talents to working in her cousin’s photography studio. Bre moved back to Naperville in 2013 and began working for the SRAM Corporation, a bicycle equipment manufacturer in Chicago. Bre’s beautiful voice earned her the opportunity to be a vocalist at Community Christian Chuirch, where she loved sharing her exceptional gift of music and expressing her strong faith in God. In early 2016, she began performing with Grateful Gary’s Magic Bus Band, an opportunity she loved. Bre will be lovingly remembered for the joyful way she lived life and touched the hearts of every person she met. A free spirit with a beautiful smile, an angelic voice, a heart of gold and the unique ability to make everyone feel loved and special, no matter who they were. Bre brought joy to all she met, and was a constant source of happiness to both her family and friends. Her radiance shown brightly both inside and out. Bre will be deeply missed by her parents and brothers, as well as her loving grandparents Richard Motta and Janet Focosi, along with many aunts and uncles, cousins and countless friends (Bre was a collector of friends!) Bre was surely greeted in heaven by her paternal grandparents, the late Salvatore and Phyllis Paladino, who loved her dearly.
