Heather Peterson

March 4, 1965 — April 2, 2024

Providence, Utah

Heather (Jensen) Peterson, passed away peacefully on April 2nd, 2024, after a 17 year battle with cancer, at the age of 59.

Heather was born March 4th, 1965 in Salt Lake City, Utah to Elsie and Reid Jensen, the youngest of their 3 children. She worked as a chemist for Kennecott Copper Mine And Salt Lake City Corp. She was an aide with the Cache County School District and was the Library Director at the Cache County Library in Providence, Utah. Her favorite job of all, however, was raising her 3 children.

She married her first husband Newton Holmquist on March 16th, 1991. They have 2 children, Holly and Bailey.

Heather married her current husband and eternal companion, Ronald Peterson, on January 24, 2003, and they were sealed on October 1, 2004 in the Logan, Utah Temple. Together, they have one daughter, Miranda.

Heather was an active member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. Her testimony of the gospel was ever growing. She attributed her successes in life, whether they were big or small, to that testimony.

She loved to craft, and sing, and she was an expert at the sewing machine. She made everything from clothing to costumes and bags to organizers. She even designed and created her eldest daughter's wedding dress. Heather was amazingly loving, caring, and wise both as a wife and a mom. She had the best advice and raised smart, strong, and independent children. She adored being a grandma and spent her time playing, reading, and singing with her grandchildren. She possessed endless love and care for everyone she met regardless of their background or lifestyle.

Heather was preceded in death by her parents, Reid and Elsie Jensen, her brother, Bryce Jensen, and her father-in-law Robert Peterson. Heather is survived by her loving husband Ronald Peterson, and her children Miranda Peterson, Holly (Kolby) Naef, and Newton Bailey (Lisa) Holmquist. She is also survived by her sister Heidi Jensen, mother-in-law, Cornelia Peterson, and sister-in-law Brenda (Peterson) Brown, her nephews, Jordan and Ashton Brown, as well as her beautiful grandchildren Finley Naef and Emery Holmquist.

Heather and her family are so grateful for the love and support they have received over the many years from friends, neighbors, and ward members. She wanted to give a special thanks to Julie, Mitzi, and Gina from her chemotherapy who made a difference in her life.
