Anna Milagros Rivera, 43, of Virginia Beach, passed away on Saturday, June 11, 2022 at her residence. She was preceded in death by her parents Lillian M. Rivera Maldonado and Joe Rivera. She is survived by her fiancé Sammy Shaffer, her aunt Nilda Rivera and uncles Ivan (Zaida), Ben (Roxie), and Tony Rivera (Susan), as well as numerous cousins including Sundaree, Ivan Jr., Eric, Joshua, Vanessa, Aisha, Ivan III, Nicolas, Tamar, Keith, Danny, Mason and many other extended family members. Along with her friends, including Jasmine Maglione, she is also survived by her two canine companions Jackson and Cinnamon.
Anna will be missed by her family, friends, and co-workers. She was a smart young woman who left us before she could reach her full potential. She was born and raised in New York City. She attended Bard College, and, despite numerous roadblocks which she overcame, she received her baccalaureate degree from Excelsior College in 2017. Anna initially wanted to be a nurse but eventually focused on accounting, something she had been doing since her early college days.
She will always be remembered by her family as a kind, generous, and giving person. It’s hard to believe that she is no longer with us. She will be sorely missed though we know she must be resting in peace in the company of her mother Lily and her maternal grandmother Maria.
Bendiciones Anna, que Dios te cuide y te bendiga. Q.E.P.D.
The family will welcome friends and family for viewing and visitation on Saturday, June 18, 2022 from 6pm until 8pm.at the Altmeyer Funeral Home, 5033 Rouse Drive Virginia Beach, VA 23462.
