She married Thomas P. Whetstone and they shared life together for 34 years. They were blessed with an incredible daughter, Meagan. Heidi’s greatest joy was sharing life adventures with them. She also loved laughing, culinary pursuits, gardening, travel, reading, and the arts. Over the years Heidi and Tom also hiked countless trails together.
