On Sunday January 27, 2019 the world went dark when we lost our beloved Andrea Pignotti unexpectedly. She touched the lives of so many, was there to lend a helping hand, to give comfort, to show love, to lend a shoulder to cry on. She was passionate and took on the world when it came to supporting causes for those who could not speak for themselves, was against testing on animals and she adored children. We know now she is a Guardian Angel watching over those who need her to.
Andrea is survived by her parents Jo Anne Valenzi Pignotti and Raymond Pignotti (Terri); sister and best friend, Renee Pignotti; uncles Jerry Valenzi and Mike Pignotti; aunts Julie McGinn and Jackie Diggle; best friends Eric Adams, Natalia Gomez Moore and Jamie Schuetze Karstetter; and numerous cousins and family members from both sides of the family. Preceded in death by her grandparents, Anne Valenzi, (Pop Pop) Joseph Thomas Valenzi, Nunzio Pignotti and Helen Pignotti; and her aunt, Valerie Valenzi. The family will receive friends beginning at 11am Saturday, February 23rd with a memorial service to follow at Noon at Affinity Funeral Service, 2720 Enterprise Pkwy, Richmond, VA 23294. A celebration of life to follow from 2 to 5pm at Pearl Raw Bar, 2229 West Main St, Richmond VA 23220.
