Heather Anne Mongeau, 41, of Preston passed away November 13, 2019 at Backus Hospital in Norwich. She was born to Frederick Mongeau and Marion (Colvin) Morissette on July 5, 1978. She left this earth after a long and courageous battle with cancer.
She lived to line-dance, where she met the love of her life, Kurt. She also loved to crochet and there still has not been a puzzle made that could stump her. She often used her love of crafting to make heart-felt gifts for those she loved. There was nothing more important to Heather than spending time with her family.
Heather is survived by her fiancé, Kurt Terpe, her mother, Marion Morissette, her father and step mother, Frederick Mongeau and Gail Bunnell, her brothers, Christopher Mongeau and his wife Jessica, Justin Morissette, and Seth Morissette and his wife Erin, her sister Megan Morissette, and her step brother Kyle Herindeen and his wife Bonnie. She will also be truly missed by many aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends. The family would like to send their many thanks to the amazing staff at Backus Hospital who lovingly cared for Heather in her final days.
Family and friends are invited to pay their respects on Thursday, November 21, 2019 from 6 to 8PM for calling hours at Cummings Gagne Funeral Home, 82 Cliff Street in Norwich. A service will be held on Saturday, November 23, 2019 at 10AM at St. James Episcopal Church, 95 Route 2A in Preston. A reception will follow at the Poquetanuck Fire Dept., 87 Route 2A in Preston, where she was a Social Member. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to The Hole in the Wall Gang Camp, a remarkable place where Heather was able to “raise a little hell” and make life-long memories as a child.
