March 9, 1970 - March 13, 2022
Surrounded by her family, Heidi Hanzon passed away on March 13th, 2022, after courageously battling chronic illness and declining health for many years. Heidi was born on March 9th, 1970, and was the proud mother of her only son, Jordan. She was the oldest daughter of Sharyl & Darrel Hanzon and a sister to four siblings: Kristy, Mindy, Jeff, and Jenny. She was an adoring and generous aunt to many loving nieces, nephews and grandnephews. Heidi had many varied interests through which she developed numerous friendships. She experienced great joy in participating in the Sterling Singers, Fan X and Stadium of Fire, just to name a few. She was never afraid to try something new and always wanted to be involved in activities that specifically centered around helping others. She had a persistent drive to learn new things and was even pursuing a college degree over the past year while simultaneously navigating her health challenges. Education was important to Heidi, and she worked tirelessly to make sure that her son could pursue and obtain an undergraduate degree. She then continued encouraging him through his master’s program. She always told him they’d graduate at the same time and go to Japan to celebrate. When it came to her own journey toward a career, Heidi never gave up and exemplified great resilience. She took advantage of many opportunities and trained and worked in numerous areas including as a hair stylist, massage therapist, dog groomer, and a variety of other positions. She was willing to take risks and was never afraid of failure. She was incredibly skilled and was a “jack of all trades” when it came to the jobs she obtained. Heidi had an immense love for music. She enjoyed singing and participated in many choral concerts. She loved the music from the 1980’s and especially admired the recording artist Cyndi Lauper because she “wasn’t afraid to be herself”. Heidi also appreciated musicals and was especially fond of “West Side Story” and “Les Misérables”. One of her favorite songs from a musical was “Bring Him Home”. Heidi also loved classic movies and considered “The Glass Bottom Boat” to be one of her favorites. She also had an affinity for horror movies like Stephen King’s “Carrie”. She looked forward to each Halloween season with anticipation and excitement as she always had a clever costume planned and could throw something together at the last minute for an amazing look. Heid’s love of Halloween, movies, and music was something that she shared with her son, Jordan. Another great passion of Heidi’s was traveling. It was a dream of hers to work for an airline in order to be able to have more freedom to pursue that desire. She was able to get her dream job shortly before she passed and had already started to make plans to visit several destinations around the world such as London, Japan, Branson, and many more. She often expressed her love for the time she spent living “back east” and was particularly fond of Boston and Philadelphia. Heidi was always planning a big travel destination or exciting activity to do with Jordan and his husband, McKay. She called them “her boys”, and they were truly her greatest treasures. Heidi was an incredibly kind and empathetic person. She was always on the lookout for how she could help someone in need or to make them feel loved. She was an incredible cook and made plenty of lasagna for everyone. She would also make a point to call people on their birthdays and sing to them first thing in the morning. Heidi was an amazing mother to her son, Jordan. She would call him daily to discuss the events of his day, and she’d always have an interesting anecdote to share with him. She was enormously proud of his accomplishments and always knew she could depend on him to be there for her in any circumstance. We are grateful for all the support and love we have received on Heidi’s behalf. She was incredibly loved, and she will be missed by so many. We know that she is finally at peace and that she is watching over countless friends and family. Funeral services will be at 11:00 a.m. on Tuesday, March 22, 2022. With viewing on Monday, March 21, 2022 from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. and again on Tuesday one hour prior to the services.
