River Sage Roche

September 9th, 2016 to December 11th, 2018

River Sage Roche, 2, of Port Huron, passed peacefully on Tuesday, December 11, 2018, listening to her favorite songs and stories, in the comfort of her own home surrounded by family.

She was born September 9, 2016 in Port Huron to Robert C. and Alicia C. Roche.

River was diagnosed with Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma, DIPG, in August 2018, which is an aggressive brain tumor with limited treatment options and less than 1% survival rate.

She was a very vibrant and happy kid who loved to play, dance, sing, go to the beach and enjoy all life has to offer. Although, River was only on this earth for a short period of time she had an enormous impact on many lives through her joyful spirit, energetic attitude and loveable smile.

She is survived by her parents, Robert and Alicia Roche; brother, Atlas Roche; grandparents, John and Suzy Roche, Marie and Harry Dart, Debra Dickens and Armando Diaz; great-grandparents, Ray and Lynn Gonzales, Charles Rush, and Agapita Diaz; and many aunts, uncles and cousins.

Private family services have taken place.
