Our beautiful daughter, sister, granddaughter, niece, cousin, friend, and mother Heather Danae Prosser Starr, 25, was taken from us on September 19, 2011. Heatherdoll was born July 8, 1986 in Fayetteville, NC. At 9 months of age she moved to Manteca, CA with her loving mother Sherry. When she was 9 years old she welcomed her younger sister Taylor into the family. She graduated from East Union High School in 2004 where she played soccer, volleyball, and cheerleading. Heather then attended the University of Nevada, Reno where she studied Criminal Justice and received her bachelor’s degree in 2009.
Heather will always be remembered for her saucy personality, high energy,her amazing smile, and ability to light up a room as soon as she walked in. She was a great leader and her outgoing personality allowed her to strike up a conversation with anyone about anything. Heather’s passions included dancing, shopping, the SF Giants, Disneyland, the ocean, snowboarding, and just like any girl- yearly trips to NASCAR races. But above any of this, Heather valued her family and would have done anything for them, especially her baby boy Ethan. She lived life the fullest and took advantage of every opportunity she had.
While at UNR, Heather met the love of her life, Jason Michael Starr. The two quickly established a passionate relationship. On April 15, 2010 Heather and Jason were blessed with a beautiful baby boy, Ethan Alexander David Starr. Ethan exemplifies the best of both worlds; the strong willed tenacity of his mother, the ardent passion of his father, and the intelligence and good looks of both.
Heather is survived by her best friend and mother, Sherry Prosser; fiancée Jason Starr; son, Ethan Starr; sister, Taylor Prosser; grandparents Kelly and Darlene Griffith; grandfather Leonard Rieb, great grandma Emma Rieb, aunt and uncle Lenny and Teresa Rieb, uncle Michael Rieb, aunt, Tammy Trukki; cousins Jaycee Rieb, Richard and Robert Milby; and parents in law, Chris and Janet DeWitt and Gary Starr, and sister and brother in law, Jessica and Ryan Starr.
