Final Funeral Arrangements Made for Giana and Aaminah Vicosa, Who Were Killed After Being Abducted by Their Father

Giana Vicosa had dreams of inventing a robot that would do all of the chores for her mother, Marisa (Ayala) Vicosa.

Aaminah Vicosa dreamed of turning her passion for animals into a career as a veterinarian.

Those dreams came to an end when the sisters were killed on Nov. 18 by their father to close a manhunt that began earlier in the week and covered two states. Robert Vicosa took his daughters from their York County residence and went on the run with fellow former police officer Tia Bynum, according to police.

An obituary says Nov. 18 is the day “Heaven gained two beautiful angels.”

A visitation will be held from 9 to 11 a.m. Saturday at Living Word Community Church, 2530 Cape Horn Road, York Township. A funeral will follow at 11 a.m., and interment will be at Susquehanna Memorial Gardens.

Etzweiler Funeral Homes and Cremation Services is handling the arrangements.

Giana would have turned 8 on Jan. 24. She was born in York. Aaminah turned 6 on June 8. She was born in Baltimore.
