Heather passed away at Central Wyoming Hospice in Casper, WY on January 13, 2022, surrounded by her loved ones. She passed after 19 months of courageously battling brain cancer.
Heather was born July 27, 1987 to Josephine Ann Hoff and Barry P. Johnston. She was born, raised, and lived in Casper all 34 years of her life. Heather primarily attended Grant Elementary, East Jr. High, and Kelly Walsh High schools, graduating in 2005. She later attended Casper College and the University of Wyoming, earning her bachelor's degree in Social Work in 2017. After graduating from college, Heather went on to work at the Central Wyoming Counseling Center, the Casper Reentry Center, and Shepard of the Valley Healthcare Center.
More than anything, Heather enjoyed spending time with her three children, who meant the world to her. Heather also enjoyed standup comedy, movies, watching "Friends", and "The Office", playing with her dog Fin, socializing with her friends, traveling, and looking forward to years of doing jigsaw puzzles with her fiancé Ryan. Heather will be remembered for her beautiful smile, her intelligence, wit, and her sense of humor. Heather had so much promise and potential and was taken far too soon.
Heather is survived by her three children, Trevan Taylor, Eryn Taylor, and Adalie Peterson, her fiancé Ryan Parker, mother, Josephine Hoff, father, Barry Johnston, brothers, Damion Burback, Seth Hoff, and Christopher Trout, sister, LaShayla Kerns, and the Parker and Peterson families, whom she loved as her own, all of whom are from Casper, Wyoming. Heather was preceded in death by her grandmothers, Betty Johnston and Firma Hoff, who she loved dearly.
Heather will be greatly missed by her family and her many friends, who were lucky enough to have had the chance to know her. For those close to Heather, this agonizing loss will be felt for the rest of our lives.
