On December 15, 2011 at 12:30 p.m., Rizelle was on her way to work in Oceanside, California. She was the passenger in the vehicle. The driver, who reportedly was on the phone at the time, lost control and the car collided into a tree. Rizelle died instantly. Rizelle was passionate about writing, dancing and living life to its fullest. She followed her passions to Oakland, Texas, Torrance and Oceanside. She was resilient in her pursuit of living for the moment and doing so on her own terms. Though her time was cut short she relished each day as if it were her last and experienced more than most people do in an entire lifetime. Rizelle excelled at anything she put her mind to and never apologized for who she was and how she chose to live her life. Nevertheless, Rizelle was very compassionate, sensitive and always believed in love above all else. Rizelle adored her family, especially her little brother Christian and her baby cousins. She was always the first to be there to lend a helping hand. Even though she portrayed a tough exterior, Rizelle wore her heart and emotions on her sleeve. People were drawn in to her magnetic personality wherever she went. Rizelle was loved by all who knew her for her endearing qualities. She will be greatly missed and will remain in our hearts forever. Rizelle is survived by her mother, Rizalina Singson; step-father, Tino Singson; grandmother, Maura Cabana; sister, Angelica; brother, Christian Singson; step-brother, Andrew Singson; uncle, Gary Cabana, aunt, Janet Wasserman; uncle, Nonie Cabana; uncle, Bogie Cabana; cousin, Odin Bengo; godfather, Cesar Catamisan and a multitude of relatives. A gathering of family and friends will be held at Rice Mortuary on Wednesday, December 21 and Thursday December 22 from 6:00 pm until 9:00 pm, both days. The Vigil will be held at 7:00 pm on Thursday December 22, 2011. The Church Service will be held at St. Catherine Laboure on Friday, December 23 at 11:30 a.m. Interment will follow at Green Hills Memorial Park in Rancho Palos Verdes.

  7. Even though I was not able to share many experiences with my younger cousin and years have gone by without my seeing her, it does not take away the deep sadness I feel for this tragic loss. She was so young… It’s still hard for me to believe. I want to send all my love and condolences to the rest of her family and friends. I know she will always be present in our hearts. You will be missed Rizelle.

  8. Rizelle so sorry I never got a chance to meet you. I pray there are angels of the Lord all around you. You are now in heaven with the Lord and in paradise.

  9. Cousin Rizelle- I remember when you were born and I will never forget your little face. Even though we didn’t see eachother for many years it was truly a blessing having you reach out to the Alamares side of your family these past few years. I always admired your courage in doing that and how brave you were in living life on your terms and loving on those same terms. You were truly unique, funny, and insightful and a lot more vulnerable than you let on. Thank you for reminding us of what it means to be brave, to love life, and to love without apologies. You will be missed. Forever in my heart- Your cousin Delfina

  10. I just want to say i’m sorry for your loss. There is no sadder thing in life than to lose your child. My prayers are with you.

  11. Rizelle also adored her biological father Lionel Alamares and The Alamares Clan who resides in Redondo Beach. Her Grandmother Carol Alamares and many many cousins that will be attending the services. Some are living outside of state that will not be able to make it. She loved her half brothers and sisters. Although she portrayed a rebel side, Rizelle was very compassionate, kind and had a great sense of being down to earth. Rizelle was loved by all and will be truly missed. Some may not know it but Rizelle interacted with her father Leo Alamares almost everyday and keeping in touch with the Alamares’s side of the family also. God will now keep her under his wings forever more.

  12. No one knows why bad things happen to those so innocent and whose life has hardly begun. For now it will have to remain the painful mystery that it is. Losses like this can make us challenge our faith; however, this is precisely the time when our faith needs to be its strongest. I am praying that your faith will help you through this very difficult time and help you to know that God’s purpose, whatever it may be, is at work. I pray that you will find the strength to get you through your grief and sadness.

  13. I’ve known the Cabana family for over 15 years and met Rizelle when she was just about 7 years old. I remember Rizelle as a quiet and a soft spoken young lady. She was genuine and was respectful to her family. I will miss her dearly. To Rizelle’s mom, Resy, I will pray for you during this very difficult time. To the rest of Rizelle’s immediate and extended family and friends, please know that my thoughts and prayers are with you all. I know Rizelle is up there with the Lord and her auntie Aimee.
