Heather Dawn Schertzer

Schertzer, Heather Dawn (nee Gerloff) entered into eternal peace with the Lord on Wednesday, October 3, 2012.

Heather was born on January 6, 1982 in Hermann, MO and graduated from Warrenton High School, Warrenton, MO., attended UMSL and resided in Fenton, MO., where she was a stay at home mom to her three beautiful children. Heather cherished her family and blessed this earth with her giving heart and profound creativity. She was incredibly proud of her children. Her beautiful blue eyes could light up a room. When she was diagnosed with cervical cancer a year ago, she chose to fight and changed her name to Heather Badger inspired by the honey badger--who doesn't give a $#@%. She motivated those around her with her tenacity, positive attitude and unwavering courage and bravery. She loved Blues Hockey, Cardinal Baseball, Halloween and Christmas decorations, 4th of July parties with the neighbors, birthday cakes, sunshine, Tom Ford sunglasses, watching her children play, family vacations, talking on the phone, Juicy Couture, diamonds (the bigger the better) and Dr. Seuss quotes. She would want everyone to vote Republican, but would still love you if you didn't. Services: A memorial service will be held at 11 a.m., Monday, October 8 at Manchester United Methodist Church. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made in her honor to Annie's Hope or the . Arrangements by JAY B. SMITH Funeral Home, Fenton, MO. Tributes at jaybsmith.com
