Obituary for Heidi Jane Schuerstedt (Huebner)
Heidi Schuerstedt, 54, of Bristol, WI, formerly of Mount Prospect, IL, passed away on Thursday, June 1, 2017, at Froedtert Hospital in Milwaukee, WI, after a valiant battle with Leukemia.
Born in Evanston, IL, on March 1, 1963, she was the daughter of the late Donald and Nancy (Stearns) Huebner.
Heidi was employed by Canteen Vending. Prior to that she owned and operated Heidi’s Bakeries in Northern Illinois and Paddock Lake, WI. She was very active in her church, Westosha Lakes Church, for the past ten years and prior to that, St. Paul Lutheran Church in Mt. Prospect, IL.
She loved knitting, running marathons, and was one of the founding members of the Oktoberfest held annually in Paddock Lake, WI. Heidi had a personality and smile that lit up the room wherever she went. She truly lived a life of service to others in so many ways, even if it was something as simple as just cheering them up with her presence. She was a light that this world was blessed to have, that will continue to shine brightly through all of the lives that she has touched.
Survivors include her four children, Shannon, Brian, Ana, and Marcel (Kristina); five brothers, Donald (Jean), Barry (Gayle), Orrin (Debby), Scott (Lynette), and Christopher (Rolean); two sisters, Rebecca (Michael) Piper, and Mary (Robert) Caldrone; two grandchildren, Kayla and Trystan; and many loving nieces and nephews.
She was preceded in death by her nephew, David Huebner.
