December 11, 1952 - June 15, 2021
Our sister, daughter, aunt, cousin, niece, friend and teacher, Maria Heaton, passed away peacefully on Tuesday, June 15,2021. Maria was born in Casper, Wyoming on December 11, 1952 to Weldon and Vivien Heaton. She attended Hurricane Elementary School, Hurricane High School and graduated from Brigham Young University with a degree in Elementary Education. She had a passion for teaching and exhibited this as she served a mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints to Lisbon, Portugal. She held many callings in the church but her favorite, by far, was her last one as an early morning seminary teacher. She taught and loved her students with all her heart. She wasn’t just their teacher; she was their friend. Maria recently retired from JNA Consulting in Boulder City, Nevada where she worked for over 20 years. She was known for her honesty. She loved and accepted everyone. Maria was never afraid to share what she believed and did this with most everyone she met. She will be missed greatly by her father Weldon Heaton and her siblings Teresa (Kris) Gubler, Shawn (Kim) Heaton, and Tory (Setema) Gali. She was a fantastic aunt to many nieces, nephews, great nieces and nephews. They will all feel a loss without her in their lives. Maria leaves behind many friends that were like family to her, including, the daughter of her heart, Annette Reitano and her best friend Peggy Leavitt. She is preceded in death by her brother Royale, her sister André, her mother Vivien, and her nephew Scott. The family wishes to thank her nurse Jon at Mountain View Hospital, Nathan Adelson Hospice, Tyson Smith from the Boulder City Mortuary, Kerry Gubler from the Serenity Mortuary, Rodney Woodbury and family, her bishop Terry Warner and President Steven Walton from her Stake Presidency. At her request, there will not be a funeral. Interment will be on June 26, 2021 at 10:00 am at the Hurricane City Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, please send donations to Humanitarian Aid for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
