Heather (Holloway) Heverling, 65, passed away on New Year’s Day at her home, surrounded by her growing family. A skilled and creative crafter, quilter, baker, wife, mom, and grandmother, she had resided in Hopkinton for the past 25 years.
She is survived by her husband of 41 years, Dave Heverling of Hopkinton, her children, Andrew Heverling and his wife, Ashley of Medfield, Molly Scholl and her husband, Jon of Framingham, and three grandchildren, Noah and Grace Heverling of Medfield and Reggie Scholl of Framingham. She is also survived by her mother, Sharon Holloway, sister, Carrie Uzelac, and brother-in-law, Gary Uzelac, all of Doylestown, PA. She was predeceased by her father, Robin Holloway.
Heather and Dave met during their college days at Lafayette College in Easton, PA, and lived in the Philadelphia area until 1997, when they moved to Massachusetts, raising and educating their children in Hopkinton and New England.
Heather taught sewing and crafts classes at the Hopkinton Cultural Arts Center and was a Girl Scout troop leader for several years. She owned and operated her own floral business. Heather also enjoyed traveling, decorating, bridge, yoga, tennis and especially being “Mimi” to her grandkids. She raised four miniature dachshunds of various colors and mental states over the past 30 years.
She and Dave spent many enjoyable times at their summer cottage in Boothbay Harbor, ME, which gave her an opportunity to enjoy the outdoors and for Heather to decorate another home.
Arrangements are under the care of the Chesmore Funeral Home of Hopkinton, and will include a Celebration of Life at a future date.
