January 24, 1990 – September 25, 2012
Heidi Teresa Hockensmith, 22, went to be with our Lord on Tuesday, September 25, 2012. A memorial service will be held at 2:30 p.m. on Monday, October 1, 2012 at Sunshine Open Bible Church, 2130 Easton Blvd. in Des Moines. Her family will receive friends on Sunday, September 30 from 4:00 to 6:00 p.m. at the church.
Heidi was placed into this world by His hand on January 24, 1990 in Des Moines, Iowa. Heidi proudly graduated from East High School where she cheered for the Scarlet’s. As a child, Heidi found great passion in being on the softball field from dusk to dawn practicing, playing and enjoying the bonds she built with her teammates and coaches.
Heidi would gladly open her heart to any person to pass her by—she truly did not know a stranger. Heidi took great pride in building strong relationships with those around her and left an irreplaceable imprint in the hearts and minds of those who were lucky enough to cross her path in her short time here. Music found a way into Heidi’s sweet soul as she spent endless hours admiring the words of Elton John, Bob Marley and The Eagles. Heidi devoted her life to our Lord as a child and spent her life following His words each day as best she could. Her family graciously places her back in the hands of our Lord.
Heidi is survived by her father, George (Michelle) Hockensmith; her mother, Sharon Vandermark; sisters, Frankie Lankford and Ronnie Hockensmith; grandparents Lowell “Gene” and Carolyn Hockensmith; numerous aunts, uncles, cousins and many other family members and friends.
In lieu of flowers, memorials may be given to the family.
