Bianca Lee Saunders, born June 10, 1992 in Los Alamos, New Mexico, was unexpectedly called home to the Lord December 2, 2022. Bianca, lifelong resident of Pojoaque, New Mexico graduated from Pojoaque High School in 2010. Bianca was the first female football player on the Pojoaque football team and was Homecoming King her senior year.
Bianca had two passions: first- her entire family, especially her little one, Elliott. Second was her love of food. She started with food competitions in high school and worked in the food industry until her death. Her infectious smile would be seen beaming on her face every time you visited with her. She never had a bad word to say about anyone, always looking for the best in people. Quick to lend a hand, if you needed help, you could anyways count on her to be there no matter how difficult the job. She was taken too soon, and while we are all heartbroken, she wouldn’t want us to cry, but to celebrate her life. We ask that you all remember the good times, and take comfort in the fact that we will see her again soon in heaven.
