Alyssa Marie Zamarron was born on May 22, 2001, the daughter of Annamarie Villanueva and Robert Zamarron in Phoenix, AZ.

She had most recently been living in Worthington, MN and attending the fourth grade at the Worthington Elementary School. She attended church at the First Baptist Church in George, IA. However, she had accepted God into her heart and was baptized at the First Baptist Church in Sibley, IA. She always loved singing at church, and actively went to TeamKids, Awanas, and Vacation Bible School. Alyssa enjoyed playing the violin in band and was looking forward to playing the clarinet next year. She also was very active in sports and loved art, singing, dancing and fishing. Alyssa loved her brothers Gauge and Robert, and sister Rihanna very much. She was her momma’s little helper, and best friend. Her favorite thing to do while at Grandpa and Grandma’s house was to play catch with the football and softball. She always had good sportsmanship while playing, she never had a frown. She was a very outgoing young girl, and always had a pretty smile to greet you with.
