Heidi Lynne Moore, 70, of Marquette, Michigan, passed away peacefully at her home on November 14. Born on April 13, 1953 in Manistee to Herman and Margaret Schmitzer, Heidi was a 1971 graduate of Manistee High School and holder of a Bachelor’s in Nursing from Northern Michigan University.
Heidi was a dedicated nurse who worked at Portage Hospital in Hancock, and Marquette General Hospital, assisting in the birth of roughly two thousand babies. Faith was important to Heidi, who served at Marquette Gospel Tabernacle and Glad Tidings Assembly of God in Hancock as a Sunday School teacher.
A gifted gardener and knitter, Heidi loved creating handknit socks for her family every Christmas and knitting hats and scarves for donations during winter. Her strong belief in the ministry of prayer knitting led her to make Prayer Shawls even during her hospitalization in 2017.
Heidi is survived by her seven children and 12 grandchildren, two siblings, her beloved Chocolate Lab, Belle, and close friends. She was preceded in death by her son-in-law and five siblings.
Services for Heidi will be held on Tuesday, November 28th at Redeemer Lutheran Church.
