Heather was born May 21, 1984 in Olathe, KS to James Carl and Gloria Kay (Vander Laan) Clark. She grew up in Olathe where she graduated from Olathe South High School in 2002. She was a member of New Life Community Church, Gardner, KS. Heather loved animals, especially her cat “Harry” and the horse she rode “Murphy.” She enjoyed individual sports. Team sports were not her choice as she always wanted to be the leader and so was known as “The Boss.” Heather loved helping and left an imprint of “Joy” wherever she went. She will be dearly missed by family and friends.
She was preceded in death by her father James. Heather is survived by her mother, Gloria, of the home; her Grandmother Dorthena Vander Laan and numerous aunts, uncles and cousins.
