She transitioned from this earth into her saviors’ arms on April 10, 2021 in Tacoma, WA. Heidi was a artist. She majored in Theater in college and created theatrical productions for the local churches.

Heidi really loved to paint. She created top-of-the-line paintings. Others saw the beauty in her creation and she began to sell her work. What made her most happy was being around her grandkids. Her heart overflowed with joy anytime she was with them. Heidi was a super-duper caretaker and it gave her joy to constantly “mother” everyone. She never turned that off. Her children were always her babies even after they began to have their own families.
She loved her church, Word of Life Ministry. She created a church ministry network within the Tacoma Area from 35+ years service to the body of Christ. She was a servant, even till her last day. She was always looking to be a blessing to the body of Christ. She adopted so many people and treated them with so much love and respect to the point that they felt that we part of our family.
