21-Year-Old US Army Fire Control Specialist Dies Suddenly While in the Shower at Her Fiancés Home

A female U.S. Army service member from West Penn, Pennsylvania, died suddenly on Christmas Day.

U.S. Army Fire Control Specialist Pfc. Briana Kromer, 21, died suddenly at the residence of her fiance in Palmerton, Pennsylvania, while on leave from her post at Fort Still, Oklahoma.

According to a fundraising campaign created by Deanne Snyder, Kromer was found unresponsive while in the shower at her fiance’s home.

In spite of their best efforts, they were unable to save her.

More from the fundraising campaign:

Her mother, Michelle and Bri were out shopping Christmas Eve. She went to church then we went to domaggios to eat and then to her boyfriends. They got engaged last night. She got a shower around 1 and was in for awhile. Her fiancé checked on her and she was passed out and unconscious. They worked on her for over an hour but couldn’t save her.

I have known Bri since she was a baby, and her parents, Michelle and Dave for 30 years. No parent should ever have to bury a child, especially not one who risks her life for our great country. I cannot fathom losing a child, especially on Christmas day. Bri’s mom said this…”She was our pride and joy. My best friend. I Dont know how we are going to live without her”.

I am at a loss for words as this beautiful, soldier, daughter, sister, aunt, friend and fiancé is no longer with us, but with our father in heaven. She was leading such a promising life protecting us as a US soldier.

There is currently no information available regarding the circumstances of her unexpected death.

Funeral services were held on Tuesday, January 3, 2023 from the funeral home.

Briana graduated from Tamaqua Area High School in 2019 and went on to study at Lehigh County Community College before joining the United States Army, according to the funeral home.
