Since a young age, Heather has always believed that God was her life. At eleven years old, Heather accepted the Lord as her Savior and became a member of the Greater St. Jude Church of Walterboro, SC. Heather was a devoted active member of the ministry and even sang as a soloist during services and along with the choir.
Heather was a true jewel of life and if you knew her, you knew that she lived life to the fullest, enjoying every moment, as best as she could. She loved to laugh, joke, and she was truly the life of the party wherever she was. She enjoyed spending time with friends & family, but most of her time was spent loving and cherishing her daughter. Together, these two would dance, sing, gossip and laugh about any and everything under the sun. Their bond was unbreakable, and she was always there.
During the early hours of May 5, 2023, Heather traded her time on earth for an eternity with her Heavenly Father. A beloved daughter, esteemed mother, devoted sister, aunt, friend and so much more; the portraits of her life, will forever be remembered by all who knew and cherished her.
