Beth Ann Portuesi

January 14, 1961 — August 16, 2023

Beth Ann Portuesi of Monroe, NC, devoted Christian, mother, sister and friend, died Wednesday August 16, 2023 at the age of 62 after a 13-year battle with cancer. She is survived by her son Richard Vreeland, and her sister Jane Mosquera.

Beth was born January 14th, 1961 to parents Johanna and Louis Portuesi, and grew up in Staten Island, NY. Following in the footsteps of her father, a painter and art director, and her mother, an interior designer, she entered the world of visual arts, receiving her Bachelor’s in Graphic Design from Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, NY. Shortly after entering the workforce, she had two children, a son Richard in 1986 and a daughter Alexandra (deceased) in 1987. She later earned a Master’s in Education from Wagner College.

After her children went to college Beth moved to Port St. Lucie, FL, where she was a longtime resident.

Her faith, children, family and friends were the center of her life. She was beloved by the small circle who considered her a dear friend. She moved to Monroe, NC in 2017 with her daughter who had late stage breast cancer. It was her daughter’s wish to live out her days on a farm, which is exactly what they did, together.
