In loving memory of

Sarah J. Boerger
December 13, 1979 - October 3, 2019

Sarah Jean Boerger
Dec. 13, 1979 - Oct. 3, 2019
Sarah Boerger, beloved mother, daughter, sister, and friend, passed away on October 3, 2019.

Sarah is survived by her parents, Paul and Rita Boerger; her daughter, Skylar Boerger-Eng; her sister, Erin (Mark) Rimmert and their children, Gavin, Ashlynn, Aiden and Cameron; her brothers, Kyle (Jaceil) and John (Susie) Boerger; her Uncle Marty (Torey) Corcoran; and her cousins, Brynna, Bailey and Heather Corcoran. She was preceded in death by her grandparents, Robert and Jean Corcoran and Kenneth Boerger; her Uncle, Michael James Corcoran; and her cousin Ann Boerger.

Sarah was a beautiful, sensitive soul who loved deeply and gave freely of the care and compassion she felt for others. Sarah was fiercely loyal to friends and family alike. She would do whatever she could to lighten the load of friends, even if all she had to give at times was a smile and a hug.

Growing up Sarah had a special relationship with each of her siblings. Her sister, Erin, wrote "My sister was amazing. She had the kindest heart. She was always my rock growing up, and I wouldn't be where I am today without her." To her younger brothers, Kyle and John, Sarah was their protector and confidant. She always made sure they knew how much she loved them. Kyle wrote "I'm happy she isn't in pain any longer. Rest easy big sister. I love you so much." John wrote "My oldest sister passed away yesterday. Spirit called her home, and I pray she is at peace."

It cannot go unmentioned the special bond Sarah had with her mother, Rita. They shared ideas, hopes and dreams, as well as disappointments and sometimes tears. There is a special place in her mother's heart that will forever hold her first born child, now that her arms cannot.

Sarah's absolute pride and joy in adulthood was her daughter, Skylar. The connection between Sarah and Skylar is such a huge part of who Sarah was that a small glimpse into that relationship must be shared here by quoting parts of the heartfelt words Skylar wrote to her mother shortly after Sarah's passing.

"When I have kids, I will tell them how kind, considerate and goofy you were. How you could pull me out of times when I felt like I couldn't take it anymore. Your hugs felt like heaven on earth to me. My favorite part of every day was coming home from school to see and talk to you. Your smile radiates warmth and love. The love and bond we shared can never be broken, not even after death. I know you're still here with me, you will always be in my heart. I will carry your spirit with every step I take. You are such an amazing woman. Such a strong and powerful kind-hearted person. Not a selfish bone in your body. I will always remember our times together, rapping Eminem in the car, singing our favorite songs and just driving. Those times were the best times of my life. I will miss laughing with you so hard our stomachs cramped and we couldn't breathe. RIP mama, I love you so much."

The family invites friends to attend a Celebration of Life to be held on Tuesday, Nov. 5, 2019, from 4-8 pm at the Goodman Community Center, 149 Waubesa Street, Madison. There will be food supplied for all to enjoy while we share our memories of Sarah.

Rita Boerger wrote on Nov 23, 2019:

"The World got it Wrong When I close my eyes, your face appears; And then, once again, come the tears; I still can't believe you're really gone, on October 3rd, the world got it wrong; You deserved a better life, You deserved to be someone's cherished wife; It should have been you, burying me, How did the world not see? This was wrong, all wrong, I prayed for a good life for you your whole life long; I prayed that happiness would come to you, Perhaps now it has, but I never meant for your life to be through; I wanted you to find happiness here on earth, I wanted you to see how much your life was worth; You deserved so much more, you deserved all the things you had stopped searching for; It's just so wrong that you died so young, It shouldn't have been you, I should have been the one. Death leaves a heartache no one can heal, love leaves us memories no one can steal. RIP Sarah"
