Victoria Heiner, 47, of Roy, Utah was called back home to her Heavenly Father on March 2, 2023 in the early morning surrounded by family.
Vickie was born on January 20, 1976 to parents Jimmie Lee Bangerter and Gale Moss Bangerter, in Tacoma, Washington. With being a military family it cost less than 12 dollars to take her home from the hospital, a fact she was very proud of since her dad was known for saving money in any way possible.
When she was 5, her family moved to Syracuse, Utah, where she attended Clearfield High and graduated from Layton High. She excelled in academics and scored nearly-perfect in the math portion of the ACT.
Vickie had a love for learning and tried to learn as much as she could. She loved to help her kids with their homework, especially math. She spent countless late nights helping them so they could do well in school.
Vickie loved to craft and scrapbook, particularly with her mom. She loved to decorate for the holidays; her favorite being Christmas. She would start decorating for Christmas in July if nobody stopped her. She loved to collect Nutcrackers and Santas.
Vickie was a great cook and loved to host and entertain her friends and family. Her kitchen always smelled amazing, and her kids loved being her official taste testers. She had a sweet tooth and never strayed too far from some chocolate.
Vickie was very caring and genuine. She loved to listen to people talk about what makes them happy. She also listened to people's heartaches and shared their pain as well. She was someone you could talk to about anything without any judgment. She would drop anything to help others, with no worry about time or expense.
Vickie met Gonzalo E. Sherrow in elementary school. They married in 1994 and had two daughters, Kirstie and Taylor. They divorced in 2018, but always remained good friends through the years.
While working at Winco foods, Vickie met her soulmate and best friend, Jesse Heiner in 2016. In 2018 they started dating and were instantly smitten with one another. They were later married October 20th 2018 and were inseparable. They shared a true one of a kind love that will go on "Always and Forever". Jesse passed unexpectedly in 2021. Finally they are once again reunited and will have a blast going on those four-wheeler trips and catching up with one another.
Vickie lived for her children and enjoyed spending as much time as possible with them. She was excited to add Natausha, Alie, and Kenny into her heart and life when she married Jesse. She went from a mother of two to a mother of five without hesitation and she loved them as if they were her own.
She enjoyed travelling and going on adventures. For her 47th birthday she took her dream vacation to Hawaii. She spent a week in paradise and told everyone all about it till her final moments. Her favorite trips with her kids were Hawaii with Kirstie and Taylor; Wendover with Kenny; and Dallas with Alie. If she was unable to join, she loved to hear about the places her kids visited. Her face would light up when she got a FaceTime from her kids while they were on vacation. She enjoyed hiking, four-wheeling (until she was forbidden by loved ones), and amusement parks where she would ride the tallest and fastest rollercoaster.
Vickie loved her family more than words could possibly describe. She was extremely close to her parents, siblings, in-laws, and children. She didn’t like the terms in-law or step; to her they were just bonus parents, siblings, and kids. She had a close bond with all of them and enjoyed talking with them for hours. She was also very close to her nieces, nephews, and her kids' friends. She treated them all as if they were her own children and everyone was welcome at her house. She was a mother and friend to all she met.
Vickie is survived by her children, Kirstie Sherrow (Roy, UT); Taylor Sherrow (Roy, UT); Kenny Callaghan-Heiner (Clinton, UT) and Natausha Greene (Farmington UT). Her siblings, Keith (Deitra) Bangerter of Lehi, UT; Natalie (Cleon) Wall of Springville, UT; Annette (Dan) Holman of Roy, UT, Andrea (Christopher) Schandel of Daytona Beach, FL. Her Grandma Elaine Bangerter of Roy, UT. Finally, her fur babies Olie, Karine, Kimi, Valkyrie, and Kira.
