Sandra L. (Boster) Vorse passed away peacefully at her home on Monday, February 11, 2013, after a valiant two-year battle with cancer. Sandy was born in Chambersburg on December 9, 1942, to the late Rubin and Margaret (Cook) Boster. In addition to her husband of 45 years, Stewart Vorse, Sandy is survived by her two sons, Craig of Fort Worth, Texas, and Matthew of Blandon and his wife Kristy; four grandchildren, Ashley and Brandon Vorse in Texas and Kyle and Alexa Vorse in Blandon; a brother, David Boster of Langhorne; a sister, Patsy Woolf of Harrisburg. Sandy was also survived by numerous nieces, nephews, grand-nieces, and grand-nephews. Sandy was raised in the Harrisburg area and graduated from Susquehanna Twp. High School in 1960, where she was not only an outstanding student, but also active in extra-curricular activities. She was captain of the cheerleading squad, captain of the girls' basketball team, and played major parts in the school's drama productions. After high school, Sandy worked for various companies, and finished her career with retirement from York Hospital after 22 years of service. Sandy was a wonderful mother, and an especially loving and kind grandmother. She was a friend to all, a caring sister, and will be sorely missed by all who were fortunate enough to know her.
