Heather Susan Santarlasci

Heather Susan Santarlasci went to be with her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ unexpectedly at the age of 22 at her home in Phoenixville on Thursday, March 28, 2013.

Heather grew up in Wynnewood and moved to Williamsport in 2006, where she met the love of her life and life partner, Brooks Alexander Borgess. Heather loved and adored being a mother to their two sons, Trey Alexander Borgess (4 years) and Jayce Nicholas Borgess (4 months).

She is also survived by her beloved mother and stepfather, Kerri and John Mims of Phoenixville; her stepsiblings, Jonathon Mims and Ava Mims; her grandparents, Mark and Susan Mahserjian-Smith of Williamsport; her great-grandmother, Rose Smith; and numerous aunts, uncles and cousins. She also loved Brook’s father, Victor Borgess and his fiancee Gwen Pardee; his brother, Andrew (Kathleen) Borgess; his sister, Brittany Borgess and their children and considered them family.

She was preceded in death by her beloved younger brother, Nicholas Robert Santarlasci; uncle, James Patrick “J.P.” Griffin; and great-grandparents, Edwin and Mary Ecker and Eugene Smith.

Heather graduated from the Williamsport Area High School in May 2008 and attended the Pennsylvania College of Technology during 2010.

Heather loved to laugh and used social media to share her many pictures, viewpoints and thoughts. A pint-sized powerhouse, she brightened every room with her radiant smile, joyful personality and forgiving spirit.

A celebration of her life will be held 2 p.m. Sunday, April 21, 2013, at St. Mark’s Lutheran Church, 142 Market St., Williamsport. A light reception will follow. Her ashes will be privately interred in the family plot in Stoltz Cemetery, Cogan Station by her family.
