Happiness is pink.
It sounds like music.
It smells like ice cream.
It taste like gum.
It feels like swimming.
It looks like family.
Happiness feels good.
Heather Evonne Williams was born to Aaron Williams and Ruby D (Buck) Williams and her big sister Kizmit (Jojo) in Vallejo, CA. on December 9, 1994. Almost 3 months premature she weighed in at a whole 5 pounds. Soon after, they moved to Humboldt County CA. Where her parents had two more children. Heather gained a stepmother, Kim Williams, and another two siblings in 2002/2003. She lived in Humboldt Co. CA until she was 15, and moved to Wyoming in 2010. After she graduated H.S. in 2013, she bounced between Wyoming and California a few times. Heather and John (JD) Ramirez gave birth to their daughter, Sapphira Ramirez, in 2018 and she realized the home and safety of her daughter was her everything.
As a child she loved bunnies, dress up, tutus, brat dolls, puddle jumping, music, knitting, crafting, movies, singing, and dancing ~ But more importantly adventures with her family or friends, like a walk in the redwood rainforest, camping at Swimmer's Delight, a weekend trip to San Francisco, a Christmas in a cabin at Tahoe, a day at Lake Desmet, or a hike in the Bighorn Mountains. As an adult she was always willing to try new things and was teaching her daughter to have the same zest for life.
Heather was an artist with a passion for crafts. She could not get enough of nature and sought it out every possible chance. Heather was the epitome of love, and loved those around her just as they were. While she is one of ten siblings, some "half" and "step", she never saw them as anything less than completely her brothers and sisters. She blessed the lives of everyone she knew with unconditional love and light.
Heather could always be seen with her crochet hooks and bag of yarn and she always had a project (or 10) going. When she found her job at Mountain Meadow Wool Mill, she couldn't believe her dream of doing what she loved had come true. She fell in love with the mechanics of the linking machine and she really valued the people she worked for, especially their family ethics in the workplace.
On August 9, 2020 she lost her life in a tragic car accident headed home after a weekend with her best friend Annie, she was headed to a family barbecue at her brother's new home. She took a huge part of our heart that day that will never be the same.
She was survived by her father Aaron Williams, Mother Ruby D (Buck) Harrel, Step "Monster" Kim Williams, Grandparents Kathleen & Earnest Buck, siblings Kizmit and her fiance Frank, Vinsent, Jessyca, Aaron II, Quinten, Leonard, Brendah, Willow, and William, Stepson Jasper and father John (JD), numerous aunts, uncles and cousins. But most importantly her daughter, Sapphira Lee Marie Ramirez, the love of her life.
There will be two celebrations of life in her home towns.
Buffalo Wyoming and Humboldt Co. California (TBD) for family and friends that loved her in each area.
Celebration of Life Thursday August 27th @ 11 am at Lake Desmet at the Monument on the North end.
