Amanda L. Heater

May 05, 1987 ‒ November 19, 2016

Mount Gilead, Ohio

Amanda Leanne Heater passed away unexpectedly in the early morning hours of November the 19th, 2016 at Marion General Hospital, Marion, Ohio. She went to be with her aunt Lorraine Mitchell in Heaven. She was 29 years of age. Amanda was born on the 5th of May, 1987 in Sacramento, California. She moved to Ohio in 1996 and has been a resident ever since. Amanda Heater was a dear friend to many, a loyal daughter and sister, and a loving mother. She will be remembered most for her indomitable love for her family, her warm smile, and her witty and completely unreserved sense of humor, which had the uncanny ability to illuminate an entire room, regardless of whom occupied it, and lastly, her seemingly constant consumption of “Monster” energy drinks. Her laughter, talkative nature and immediately recognizable voice, all will be sorely missed.

She is survived by her two daughters, Arianna Webber (Bill Webber) and Braelynn Tolle (Branden Tolle); her mother and step-father, Angela (Johnson) Botjer and Scott Botjer; sisters, Andrea (John) Huff and Angel Heater; her brother, Bradley Heater Jr; her father, Bradley Heater Sr.; her nieces, Kaylee, Camryn and Jillian Huff, Arianna Howard; and  her nephew, Bronxton Heater. Grandmothers Barbara (McGee) Brown of Sacramento, CA. and Sandy (Simones) Shaffer of Mansfield, Ohio. Grandfather Thomas Heater Sr. of Vanceburg KY and numerous aunts, uncles and cousins.

Snyder Funeral Homes of Mount Gilead are honored to have been chosen to serve Amanda’s family. Arrangements for a celebration of her life will take place at a later date.

We lost touch, but I know if I know to run into her again, we would have been just as close. I just hope for all of us as humans this can come to a hault. We have to become a unit through this difficult time and join together. I’m so sorry for the family and friends, for Amandas children. I pray that the love from everyone will come through from Amanda and I pray God allows her loss to open are hearts.

  • Lamando,
    Not a day goes by that a memory of you doesn’t cross my mind, or the thought of you touches my heart. I can recall countless times your sister and I spent laughing, teasing, and loving you. I had a hard and broken home life that I suffered when I was young, but you and your family took me in off of the streets and gave me a place to stay and a family to belong to. You never pitied me and was the first to defend me. I blame you for the hard times in my life being softened and the unbearable pain being turned into laughter. You loved me through it. I want to tell you thank you and to let you know Im okay. You are gone but I see you in every road I walk, every laugh I make and every tear that falls. My heart holds the love of a sister, the pain of a loss. My mind holds your memory. My world became bearable when your family took me in and I will never forget that. Go rest high on that mountain. I will see you again sis. I love you

  • I am very sorry to hear this. I am praying for the family. I didn’t know her very well but we attended the same elementary school, Dawsett. RIP girlfriend.
