06-30-2012 - Classmate Heidi Stover Le Duc Passed Away June 29, 2012
1950 ~ 2012 Heidi Le Duc passed away June 28, 2012. She was born January 4, 1950 in Hanover, Germany. At eight years old, Heidi was adopted and brought to the United States by Walter Stover. She was later adopted by Dr. Jack and Patty Haskell. Within this beautiful family she became a sister to three remarkable people, Sue Patillo, Jan Brushke and Jill Basket and this was where Heidi finally discovered what a true family feels like. Heidi is survived by her husband of 42 years Tom, her daughter Alison and her husband John Paul Meyer, her daughter Aimee and her partner Dana Younkin; her sons Clay and Andrew and the most beautiful grandchild in the world, Charlotte. She is also survived by her mother, Pat Haskell and her sisters, Sue Patillo, Jan Brushke and Jill Basket.
Beautiful in mind, body, and spirit Heidi was out-of-this-world spectacular. She will be remembered for her championing of the underdog and her fierce support of her children as well as sharing her passions for dancing, reading and music with her many close friends. She loved celebrating holidays. (Who will ever forget The Bartlett's at Halloween or the infamous Christmas basket exchanges with the Crowther's?). She also dearly valued the family parties at the Haskell's, the many car trips to Grand Junction to see Tim (Le Duc) and Jean and the kids, being the GM to the Goddesses, the innumerable, (mostly) joyful experiences growing up with the Jensen's, and her family's life-long friendships developed at St. Vincent's, especially Greg and Jean Gardner.
Heidi enjoyed life and she did it with remarkable style. She will be missed forever but never forgotten. All funeral services will be held at Wasatch Lawn Memorial Park, 3401 Highland Dr. There will be a viewing on Monday, July 2 from 6-8pm and the funeral will be held Tuesday, July 3, with a viewing at 1:30 and funeral at 2:30. Burial to follow immediately afterward. A reception will be held at the Le Duc home, 1489 Millcreek Way, Salt Lake City, from 5:30-7:30.
Instead of flowers, please send donations to Shriners Hospital for Children in Salt Lake City.
