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.
Andrea, may our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, keep you wrapped in His loving arms forever.
Sweet little Andy I pray you are at peace. Fly high angel. Fly high
Andrea, I hope you are at peace now. You have to know what a great friend you were to me and many others and we were lucky to have known you. Just being around you made us better people. I personally enjoyed our days working behind the bar together and recently working out at the same gym. We know you will be watching over us and shining brightly beautiful angel.
It is the secret of the world that all things subsist and do not die, but retire a little from sight and afterwards return again. Ralph Waldo Emerson
my thoughts and prays are with you and your family . you are a strong person and over time her memories will get easier. any time you need a hug to get thru a day call and i’ll be there for you
Andrea, your beautiful smile will be forever missed, I hope you have found the peace you need. The Phil’s family loved and will miss you.
God is not the God of the dead but of the living: for in him all are alive! To the family of Ande our deepest sympathy. To Ande soar high sweet girl.
Our deep condolences on this sad occasion. We didn’t know Andrea personally, but Jo is our dear friend and fellow school class member. We have daughters too (and granddaughters who also light up our lives). We pray God’s comfort to all the family and friends of Andrea, a special lady.
My heart breaks for all my Valenzi family. This is such a sad event and you are all in my prayers
Ande, I am very saddened you left us so soon. You were the ideal friend to me. You always treated me like a brother and we could joke with each other and you always gave me a hug whenever I saw you. Not once did you get mad at me when I picked you and Renee up late to school most every morning. You still smiled everytime. My heart aches over this but I know you’re in a much better place with God comforting you and I’ll see you in that place oneday and that gives me Peace. I thank you for the great memories. I love you and miss you my friend.
My fondest memory: We go to Key West for vacation. Upon our arrival you immediately lose your mind. Hotel was under construction and you were going off on who ever would listen. Come to find out they were building sets for MTV shows. So nightmare turned dream come true as you end up on the Carmen Electra dance party show. You were always a hand full but from that came a lot of passion , love and kindness. RIP Pignotti ( I never use her first name for those that don’t know me . Always a giggle between us) Your smile will be missed!!
Cousin Ande, although we didn’t see each other much, I love you and your sister, Renee, very much. You were a beautiful, kind, caring woman and you will be very missed. You left us way too soon. May the angels lift you up to see the face of God. Continue to watch over your family and friends as you did on earth. Sending prayers of comfort to your whole family. May you R.I.P. i love you.
There are some people who bring a light so bright to the world that even after they are gone the light remains. RIP Andrea 💜 Love you. Prayers of love and peace to your family and friends.
You were always the brightest star!
Andrea I hope you are in peace now. Until we meet again sweet angel 💕
