Heather A. Johnson
February 3, 1967 – September 25, 2018
Heather died on September 25th, 2018 from injuries sustained in an automobile accident. She passed peacefully, surrounded by her family.
Heather was a bright light in many lives. She was a caring soul, spontaneous and fun. Heather was easy to talk to, whether you had just met her or had known her your entire life. She cherished spending time with her friends and was always busy attending social events in Omaha and surrounding areas. Some of her favorite activities included dining out (she never missed an opportunity for dessert), attending concerts, dancing, traveling, and watching B-horror movies. Her favorite holiday was Halloween, and she loved getting dressed up every year and celebrating with friends.
Heather was extremely passionate about animals of every kind and spent time volunteering at the Nebraska Humane Society and Nebraska Wildlife Rehab. She had many different pets over the years, including fish, mice, ferrets, and chinchillas. Nothing compared to her three beloved Chinese Foo dogs: Puff, Nala, and Wei Shan.
Heather touched many lives through the gift of organ donation. She was preceded in death by her father, Richard. She is survived by her mother, Laurie; sister, Carrie all of Omaha; brother, Corey and wife Gina, and nephew, Hoyt of St. Paul, MN; aunts, uncles and cousins.
The family will receive friends on Friday, October 5th, from 6pm to 8pm at the West Center Chapel.
