Emily Ann Lanni, 13, of Holly Springs, left this world all too soon on Thursday, March 16, 2017 after a short yet beautiful life.

Emily was born March 8, 2004 to Frank and Christina Lanni. As the youngest of four children Emily attended Holly Springs Elementary and Holly Ridge Middle School. She loved dancing, tumbling, spending time with friends and doing her make-up.

She is remembered by her friends and family as kind and sweet to everyone she knew. Her beautiful spirit has touched us all and she will live in our hearts forever.

Emily is survived by her loving parents, grandfather Gene Lay, brother Dakota Joseph Lanni and sisters Megan Marie Lanni and Mary Catherine Lanni.

A Celebration of Life will be held at 5:00 p.m. on Wednesday, March 22, 2017 at Apex Funeral Home with a reception to follow. A private graveside service will be held at a later date.
