The world lost a shining light and beautiful soul on December 12, 2018, when Brandi Shasta (Blotz) Costa passed away unexpectedly of natural causes. Brandi was born on July 29, 1984 to Jan Arnold Blotz and Douglas Blotz in Walnut Creek, Ca. and grew up in Pleasanton, Ca., graduating from Amador High School in 2002. She went on to receive her Bachelor of Arts degree in English Literature at California State University, East Bay in 2008. She was a valued employee and had a successful career at “Ports 1961”. Brandi cherished her friends and family and adored being a Mom to her son, Isaiah. She recently married her beloved soul-mate, Mark, and was enjoying building their home and lives together with Isaiah. Her passions were helping those in need, as well as her creative outlets; cooking for those she loved and journaling her thoughts and joy for each day’s adventures. Her beautiful smile was most radiant when she was visiting the Santa Cruz Boardwalk to ride The Big Dipper and enjoy a walk along the beach. Most importantly, Brandi loved deeply and lived her life with the greatest enthusiasm.
