Natasha Ania Sagucka

March 24, 1993- November 4, 2017

24 year old Natasha Ania Sagucka was born to Snowboard! From the time she was two years old till her last days on this earth she found peace, love and light on the mountains. She thrived from the energy of slashing through the trees and sliding on the rails just perfectly.

Tash lived her short life to her fullest potential. Inspiring everyone who knew her, most of all her little sis Kayla, who fearlessly donated her stem cells to give Tash a second chance at life; twice. On November 15, 2016 Natasha was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia ALL from that day forward Tasha‘s life was forever changed. Tasha was a young and brilliant soul who bravely battled a horrific disease. On November 4, 2017 this disease ultimately stole her young life. Our hearts are heavy with the loss of our beautiful baby girl. With Tasha‘s passing we remind others that her life is one to be celebrated. Although we miss her every single day especially her beautiful smile and her incredible zest for life she will forever remain in our hearts forever and ever.

Natasha is survived by her mother Margaret Sagucka and her father Kori Griffin; her sister Kayla Sagucka and brother Carson and Scottie Carey and stepdad Scott Carey. She also leaves her beloved maternal grandmother Babi Ania Sagucka who helped raise her since she was a little girl and her paternal grandfather Major Griffin, as well as her beloved boyfriend Ali Giroux, her auntie Summer Schimandle, her cousins Ian and Paxston and her baby puppy love Reno! And of course many many more…

Please join us in celebrating Tasha’s beauty, grace and courage. A Celebration of life will be held for Natasha at Sierra Community Church, 1165 Sierra Blvd, SLT, CA on December 4, 2017 at 11AM.

In lieu of flowers please make a donation to Leukemia Lymphoma foundation, Saint Jude’s or Make a Wish.
