Leyda Marie Heisch Notice
Oct. 16, 2017 Vallejo Leyda Marie Heisch, 43, passed away suddenly on Monday, Oct. 16. She was born in Glendale, and was a longtime resident of Vallejo, graduating from Hogan High in 1992. Leyda is preceded in death by her parents, Calvene Ann Heisch and Keith Roland Heisch. She is survived by her older brother, Darin Keith Heisch (his wife, Nora, children, and grandchildren) of Simi Valley; his son, Darin Keith Heisch Jr (his wife Lindsey and sons, Jayden and Isaac) of Riverside. Leyda lost her mother at an early age, but followed in her footsteps to become a nurse. She received her nursing degree from Napa Valley College in 1999 and worked for Queen of the Valley Hospital in Napa for 15 years. For the past two years, she worked for the Veterans Home of California in Yountville. She was a compassionate caregiver for her father for four years before his death. Leyda loved to craft, making stationary, soap, and repurposing wine bottles into decorative lanterns. Friends and family will remember Leyda as an animal lover and supporter of the LGBT community. She was a brave, spontaneous, generous, hysterical and accepting woman. She will be missed immensely. A Celebration of Life will be held on Nov. 18, at 1 p.m., at the Veterans Home of California, Hospital Chapel, President's Circle, Yountville, CA 94599. All are welcome. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to one of Leyda's favorite charities such as kiva.org or the local humane society.
