Heidi Whitson

Heidi Whitson of Springfield, Missouri, formerly of Miller, Missouri went on to be with her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ on, January 31, 2021, after a long battle with cancer. Heidi was a beautiful woman both on the inside and outside, and everyone who knew her, knew that well.

One of her greatest personality traits was that she knew how to love the people that no one else could seem to love. She knew how to include everyone and loved you no matter who you were.

Heidi left the school system after many years of loving many kids in the special education classrooms. Her care for the kids she loved will impact the lives of others for generations to come.

Heidi most recently attended Turning Point Church in Springfield, Missouri, where she felt deeply loved and cared for, she especially loved the fellowship after church.

Heidi will be deeply missed, even though we know the beauty she is experiencing in heaven right now.

Heidi is survived by her two sons, Kurtis Estes and his wife, Melissa of Salisbury, Missouri and Donny Estes and his wife, Takisha of Mt. Vernon, Missouri; her pride and joy were her six grand babies, Zane (10), Olivia (9), Gracie (6), Riley (5), Jaxon (4), Lynise (2); she is also survived by her dad, Bill Whitson of Springfield, Missouri; one brother, Tim Whitson and his wife, Becky of St. Peters, Missouri; two nieces, Tiffany Leonard and her husband, Danny of O’Fallon, Missouri, and Ashley Murray of Wichita Falls, Texas, along with many loving aunts, uncles, cousins, and faithful friends.

She was preceded in death by her mom, Margie Whitson in October of 2020.
