Family was at the heart of Hedy’s world, and her love for her grandkids was boundless. She took immense joy in sharing meals and creating cherished memories with her friends.
In addition to her husband, Earl, she is survived by her daughters, Richelle M. (Travis) Boston, and Karen L. (Thomas) Karr; her siblings, Donna (Phil) Crouse, Mary Burger, and Rick (Brenda) Albright; and 10 grandchildren.

Hedy will be missed tremendously! There is solice knowing she went home to be with her Lord and Savior. She had a huge heart, loved to laugh and welcomed me into the family with open arms. I lost a second mother this week and it will take a long long time to deal with the pains that follow. She would not want us to be in pain over her loss but rejoice knowing there is a way to be with her again. Until that day i will miss her and hang onto the many fond memories. Travis Boston
