Ciara Yvette Diaz, 28, of Glen Burnie, MD, and formerly of Mount Vernon, NY, passed away on Monday, June 12th, 2023, after a nine-month battle with Krukenberg Cancer.
Ciara was born on the 9th day of February 1995 to Raul Diaz and Yvette Luciano in Bronx, New York.

They went on to marry September 30th, 2022. They adopted four fur babies: Zoey, Luna, Zeke and Leo.
Ciara had a deep appreciation for the outdoors and loved to hike, especially around upstate New York. Once a former Girl Scout troop committee member, she supported her younger sister Isabella and her troop. Always curious and creative, she taught herself how to crochet and loved DIY projects of all kinds. She loved to read and explore new music genres, as well as True Crime podcasts and documentaries.
