Marisa Rose Albright, 26

Marisa Rose Albright, 26, of 2636 Breezewood Rd., Lancaster, passed away unexpectedly at her residence on Sunday.

Born in Lancaster, she was the daughter of William J. and Annarose Cooch Albright.

Marisa was a 2000 graduate of Manheim Twp. High School, where she played clarinet in the marching band and was member of the rifle team. She had attended Harrisburg Area Community College where she studied to be a Licensed Practical Nurse. She had been employed as a CNA at Moravian Manor and Lancashire Hall. She had also previously worked for Fulton Bank in East Petersburg for several years.

Marisa was a member of St John Neumann Catholic Church, where she had been active in the youth group in years past and served as a group leader.

She was a kind, gentle and loving person, who had a special place in her heart for helping others and was fond of animals. A devoted mother, she loved her children dearly.

Marisa enjoyed the outdoors, especially fishing, canoeing and hiking. She enjoyed writing poetry and had studied piano under the late Dr. Mary Vyner for 11 years.

So very sad. Although I didn’t know Marisa well, I went to elementary school with her, and the first thing that came to mind when remembering her is what a sweet person she was.

My deepest sympathy.

I felt so saddened to read about Marisa’s untimely death. She was seven years old and a first grader at Nitrauer Elementary when I tested her for learning disabilities. I just wanted express my heartfelt sympathy and let you know that I am tinking of you.
