Heidi Hardcastle Garff, age 62, passed away peacefully in her home in Salt Lake City, Utah on Sunday, January 7, 2018. She was born on February 23, 1955 in Salt Lake City, Utah to Nolan Ray Hardcastle and Mary Marjorie Meyers Hardcastle.
She graduated from West High School and received her Medical Assistant Certification from the Salt Lake City College of Medical and Dental Assistants in 1973. After working as a loan officer for several years, Heidi (a life-long learner) decided to return to her passion of working in the medical field and received a Nursing Assistant Certificate in 2002.
Heidi brought joy to everyone around her. She held a deep passion for improving the well-being of others, and bringing happiness and a better quality of life to anyone she could. Heidi was extremely compassionate, and was known for reaching out to those in need.
Heidi was well-known for her strong work ethic. She embraced her duties as a Life Enrichment Manager specializing in Alzheimer's and Memory care and had a great impact on several individuals suffering from such ailments. Heidi was a magnificent example to others working in this field.
Heidi viewed every moment that she could spend with her grandchildren as a true blessing. She will always be remembered for the special trips to Liberty Park she would take them on, as well as the one-on-one movie "dates" with each grandchild. She was fun, exciting to be around, and taught each grandchild the importance of embracing their own individuality.
She married Reid Stephen Garff on December 14, 1991 in Las Vegas, Nevada. Reid passed away on June 29, 2006.
