Obituary for Magdalena Lauren "Alena" Nasianceno
Magdalena “Alena” Nasianceno died on Sunday, February 21, 2021. She was 31.
A native of Valparaiso, Indiana and born October 12, 1989, she was the daughter of Isidro “Cid” Nasianceno and the late Kathy Skipper Nasianceno.
Alena had been a resident of the Jackson area since childhood. She attended Pearl High School, Hinds Community College, Holmes Community College, and the University of Southern Mississippi.
Alena was a kind, funny, and compassionate young woman. She was a down-to-earth, conservative, and friendly person who loved music, hockey, and ruling her brothers. She had an interesting sense of humor and was very witty, keenly observant of others with a willingness to help and a concern about the environment. She was an avid Chicago Blackhawks hockey fan and loved animals, especially her dog “Zoey” and cats “Toews” and “Ahri.”
Alena demonstrated her tremendous strength in her love for her family and dedication as a daughter in caring for her beloved mother, Kathy, who died in 2017. Alena’s family adored her. She was cherished by her father, beloved by her brothers, her crazy aunts and uncles, her cousins and all of those that surrounded her with love and received Alena’s gracious love.
In addition to her mother, she is preceded in death by her maternal grandparents, Stacey Buren Skipper and Peggy Snowden Skipper; and paternal grandfather, Isidro D. Nasianceno.
She is survived by her adoring father, Isidro “Cid” Nasianceno (Sharon); her brothers who she loved so very much, Brenden Frank Nasianceno and Gabriel Isidro Nasianceno; step-sister, Lora Elizabeth Smiley; step-brothers, Jacob Andrew Smiley and John Matthew Smiley; her paternal grandmother and namesake, Magdalena Nasianceno; uncles, Jesse Nasianceno (Debbie) and Jerry Duane Skipper (Kay); aunts, Maria E. Nasianceno (Buddy Ingram), Hilda Nasianceno, Lupe’ Bousier (Tom), Mary Hagardt (John), and Shelia Skipper Guzman (Emerson); her cherished cousins, Kimberly Nasianceno, Natalie Cook, Jerry Koontz, Jeffrey Koontz, Lynnea Hagardt, Erica Hagardt, Jessica Bousier-Raine, Alexis Bousier-Haskins, Rachel Skipper, Scott Skipper, and Mark Skipper; and a host of other loving relatives and friends, including very special friend, Miles Graham.
A service remembering and celebrating Alena’s life will be held at 3:00 p.m. on Thursday, February 25, 2021 at Pinelake Church, 223 Old Jackson Road in Madison, with Jason Smith officiating.
In lieu of usual remembrances, the family suggests memorials be made to The American Cancer Society or Webster Animal Shelter in Madison, MS.
