Stacy Lauren Paiva Sant’Ana
January 27, 2016
Stacy Lauren Paiva Sant’Ana died Jan. 27, 2016. She was 23. Born in Secaucus, New Jersey, she lived in Dunellen and Saylorsburg, before moving to Kearny, New Jersey, six years ago.
Visiting will be from 3 to 7 p.m. Sunday at the Armitage Wiggins Funeral Home, 596 Belgrove Drive, Kearny, New Jersey. Service 11 a.m. Monday in the funeral home, private cremation will follow.
Stacy had a truly inspiring personality. Unfortunately her life was far too short. Despite her own illness, having been the only recipient of four heart transplants, she was very successful in encouraging hundreds of people to declare themselves as an organ donor. We will never know the full scope of her heroic battle to help others in medical need. Her short life lives on however because of her and her parents selfless action of donating her eyes, bone marrow and skin.
She loved everything pink and we encourage you to wear pink at her funeral. A devout Harry Potter fan, she loved to read and write. She loved all things super natural.
She is survived by her loving parents, Julian and Susan Sant’Ana, and her cherished brother, Steven Tyler Sant’Ana. She was also the beloved granddaughter of Mary and Richard Paiva and Lazaro and the late Nita Sant’Ana.
