November 7, 2014 – December 31, 2014

 She was welcomed in to this world in the loving arms of her parents, Benjamin Allen La Sarte III and Jacqueline Annette Jacobs.

Our beautiful daughter was born on November 7th, 2014 at Providence Sacred Heart Medical Center, Spokane, WA.

Although she was perfect in every way; her little nose, lips, smile, chubby little cheeks, her little monkey toes and the way she just stared right through your soul with her big eyes – her heart wasn’t able to keep up with the rest of her body.  She had a heart condition called hypo plastic left heart syndrome. She came out as our little fighter.  She underwent her first surgery at only 3 days old.  She recovered very quickly.  Then shortly followed a balloon procedure and quickly recovered from that too.  She finally came home from the hospital and was only with us for a short two weeks.  We enjoyed every second with her.  We thank the Lord for giving us our precious short time we had with her.  In this short time with us, for being such a little person she touched so many lives and took so many of our hearts with her when she left us.

She passed away with poison toxins to her body which eventually caused her heart to go in to cardio arrest.

She loved being held by her grandmas and great grandmas; Kristy Sawaya Mosman, Naomie Pepe, Carolyn Gannon, Astrid “Ozzi” Jacobs and Lois Whybark.  She couldn’t wait to meet her Papaw & Nana Brandon & Jessica Jacobs.  She had so many Aunts and Uncles that loved her and couldn’t wait to meet her.  She loved to cuddle, sing and hangout with Mommy.  She was Mommy’s little Missy Moo Moo Moo.  She loved her butt being padded by her Daddy as he held her and put her to sleep.  She was Daddy’s tool box with a bunch of tools.

Our beautiful precious baby is now our guardian angel in heaven watching over us.

We welcome anyone who wants to attend her service on Wednesday, January 7th, 11:00 AM at St. Mary’s Church, Moscow, ID.

Arrangements are under the direction of Short’s Funeral Chapel, Moscow, and online condolences may be sent to

    I am so very sorry for your loss. Marianna’s adorable smile brought so much joy to all that ever met her. She has a mommy and daddy that love her so much. I am blessed to have been able to meet her and her wonderful parents. Hearts are breaking for you all, and thoughts and prayers go out to you both and the rest of your families.
