Heather Marie Holt, age 37, passed away at her home in St. George, Utah, on Oct. 12, 2018.
Heather was born to Heidi (Nielsen) Raya on Feb. 8, 1981. in St. George. She grew up there with her younger sister Angela. The girls enjoyed camping and fishing with their mom and Heather’s stepfather, Gabriel Raya.
Heather graduated from Dixie High School in 1999 and went on to complete medical assistant training. Her talent along with a fun and open nature led to her being hired outright from an externship at a local doctor’s office.
She met William Jade Holt while working as a medical assistant in 2004. They fell in love and were married in 2006 in St. George.
Heather decided to leave medical assisting in 2005 and went to work at the Walmart Distribution Center in Hurricane, Utah. There, she spread good humor and touched many lives.
The couple decided to add to their family in 2008. Jace James was born at the beginning of 2009, and Heather and Jade welcomed their second baby, Ivy Marie, in 2011.
Shortly after meeting Jade, Heather found and stayed in touch with her brother, Ron Dean.
Heather is survived by her husband, William Jade Holt, children, Jace and Ivy Holt, mother, Heidi Raya, sister, Angela Nielsen, brother, Ron Dean, stepfather, Gabriel Raya, grandmother, Everal Bowler, and many nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles, cousins, family and great long-term friends.
