Andrus, Maximillian B.  
Maximillian (Max) Barrett Andrus February 1, 1991 August 29, 2015 Maximillian "Max" Barrett Andrus, of Snow Shoe, left this world on Saturday, August 29, 2015. Born February 1, 1991, he is the only son of Karen (Hall) Andrus-Smith and the late Leon "Andy" Stanley Andrus, Jr. Max was beloved by all and gave his all to his family, his employers, and his many, many friends. For a "tough guy," he had a sensitive heart, gracious soul, and a charismatic personality that drew so many towards him. His happiest pursuits were BMX biking, fishing, hunting, playing Bass Guitar and "showing up" his grandfather, uncle, cousins, and the other men during any game season; these made for happy family connections and stories. Max was also a skilled poker player. Moore's Run Hunting Camp has lost a valuable member. Max gave generously of his time teaching kids of all ages bike tricks and repair. Max is survived by his mother; his grandparents, Kenneth and Sharon Hall, of Moshannon, and Janet Andrus, of Mill Hall; his sisters, Nichole Andrus-Adkinson, Sabrina Andrus and Brittany McCloskey, of Texas; his uncle, Stuart (Stephanie) Hall; his aunt, Susan (Todd) Powlus; and his cousins, Caleb (Betsy) Powlus, Shanna (Drew) Wheeler, Wyatt (Brittany) Hall and Merritt Hall. He is also survived by a large extended family who loved him dearly. He was preceded in death by his father; and grandfather, Leon "Ank" Stanley Andrus, Sr. Arrangements have been made by Mark D. Heintzelman Funeral Home. Memorials will be held at the convenience of family and friends. Donations can be made to Pets Come First, 2451 General Potter Highway, Centre Hall, PA 16828.

Heller, Kathleen  
Kathleen (Borawski) Heller August 20, 1956 August 27, 2015 Kathleen (Borawski) Heller died on August 27, 2015, at Milton S. Hershey Medical Center. She was born on August 20, 1956, in Sharon, to Marie C. Kopnicky and Thomas D. Borawski. She was the oldest of four children: surviving siblings, Daniel, of Sharon, Thomas, of Marysville, Ohio and Susan, of Sharon. She married Richard K. Heller on December 22, 1994. Her mother predeceased her on March 31, 2015. Grew up as a 'tomboy'. Loved to play sports, but still loved to play with her Barbie and Ken dolls. She was a member of the Girl Scouts until ninth grade. Competed in track, cross country, road racing, and softball. Among the best summer evenings of her childhood were spent listening to Bob Prince call the Pirates games on KDKA. Played guitar and accompanied singers for many Roman Catholic masses and weddings in the 1970s and '80s. Graduated from Penn State in 1978, with a BS in Meteorology. Her first weather job was in Cleveland, Ohio. She worked with Al Roker and committed to being a fan of all things Cleveland. One of her greatest wishes was to see the city of Cleveland win its first major sports championship since 1964. The recession of the early '80s sent her to State College to work for AccuWeather, as their first female meteorologist, Kathy Francis. It was at AccuWeather where she met and eventually married Richard Heller. After 23 years at Accu- Weather, she retired from weather in 2005, and went to work part-time at the YMCA of Centre County. In this setting, she was able to expand, grow and evolve in the world of fitness, and pass that on to others. In her mid-50s, she took up Muay Thai kickboxing, and was able to reach the highest student level of that martial art as a member on Central PA Mixed Martial Arts. She considered that perhaps her greatest athletic achievement, every bit as satisfying as playing basketball at Penn State and completing 10 marathons. Cancer limited what she could do eventually, but was never able to take away the spirit and the discipline; it just gave it a different look. Kathleen was an introvert by nature; strong, loyal, sensitive (perhaps to a fault), discerning, and driven by her purpose in life - "do the right thing, treat people right, and glorify God". She is eternally grateful to husband Richard, family and friends, as she believed we are all connected; what we do to the self, we do to another, and what we do to another, we do to the self. And, finally, no one can do life and do it well without other people and God. A memorial service will be held on Tuesday, September 8, 2015, at 11:00 a.m. at St. Paul's United Methodist Church, 250 East College Avenue, State College, PA 16801. In lieu of flowers, charitable contributions can be made in Kathleen's name to the Centre County Women's Resource Center in State College; the State College Area Food Bank; the YMCA of Centre County; Kennedy Catholic School system in Hermitage; Penn State Milton S. Hershey Cancer Institute in Hershey; or the national organization Stand Up 2 Cancer.
