VENUS - Heather Ann Town, age 32 of Venus and formerly of Okeechobee passed away Sunday, June 24, 2012 in Highlands County, Florida as a result of Tropical Storm Debby. She was born Feb. 28, 1980 in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. She had been a resident of Basinger (Okeechobee) for the last 22 years. In February 2012 she moved to Venus, Florida. Heather's life revolved around her family and three beautiful daughters that she was raising as a single parent. In addition she loved celebrating every holiday and birthday that brought the family together. Heather would do anything for her daughters, which is no surprise that Heather's last breathes were taken clutching her youngest daughter to protect her from the tornado that took her life. Heather Town is a Hero and will always be remembered as a hero by her family, friends and people everywhere. She was considered more than a tenant by her landlord and more than an employee by her employer, she was a friend. Heather blessed everyone she came in contact with. Heather will always be in our hearts and loved forever. She will be truly missed by her surviving daughters, Amber, Angelica and AnnMarie; parents, Rosa Town and George Town II (FieFie); her grandparents Greta and Kenny Peterson and Dawn and Ed Erickson; sister, Crystal Walker (Portor); brother, George Town (Staci); step-sisters, Mailien and Cindy; seven nieces and nephews, Codi, Destiny, Alex, Alexis, Shane, Annibelle and Chrysa; and many aunts, uncles and cousins.
