Funeral Expenses for Allen Heist

Campaign Created by: Christine Hernandez

The funds from this campaign will be received by Sharon Heist.

Goal: USD $5,000
Raised: USD $ 2,020

Update:

If you prefer to mail a donation, please message me and I can provide Sharon’s address. I also have Venmo or PayPal available if needed. 

We are reaching out today to ask for your support for Allen Heist. He was beloved Husband, Dad, Grandpa, Great-grandpa and Uncle.

Al has been happily married to Sharon for 47 years. Together they have three daughters, 11 grandchildren, and 6 great-grandchildren. A beautiful and devastated family is learning to navigate life without our beloved, Al. 

On January 7, Al went to the hospital because he wasn't feeling well. Before we knew it, we had a diagnosis of double lung cancer that caused numerous blood clots which caused Al to have a massive stroke on February 18. 

On February 20, Al was sent home on hospice. Surrounded by his girls, Al peacefully passed away on February 23.

Both Al and Sharon have been off work for months. Al has been a roofer for most of his life. Recently, Al worked as a furniture delivery driver. His wife, Sharon, has been a CNA in a nursing home for her entire working career.  

We are asking for help for medical and funeral expenses. 

You are also able to make donations directly to the funeral home: Johnson Danielson Funeral Home

We are grateful for any and all donations and greatly appreciate your prayers. Our family sure needs them right now.

Love, The Heist Family

The family found out yesterday that Al was not approved for medicaid in time to receive any assistance for the funeral. Sharon was at his bedside day in and out and simply wasn't in the mind space of medicaid. She just wanted to soak up every moment with Al. Any donation, $5 or $10 would be so helpful at this time.
Thank you,
Christine
