Heather was born Dec. 8, 1979, in St. Louis Park, to James and Angela Howe. She grew up in Howard Lake, and went to Howard Lake-Waverly-Winsted Schools, where she was an excellent student, graduating in May of 1999.
Heather was very young-at-heart and loved rainbows and bright colors. She was very close with her family, had a kind and gentle soul, and a way of connecting with children. She would often boast about her goddaughter, Alicyn, and her sister, Sissy, and carried pictures of them every day.
Heather enjoyed swimming and camping with family growing up.
She met the love of her life, Anthony Westphal, five years ago, and they were inseparable.
Heather is survived by her parents, James and Angela Howe; and her sisters, Jessica, Melinda, Michelle, and Brittany Howe.
She was preceded in death by all of her grandparents; an aunt; and uncles.
