Visitation with family will be held from 5-7 p.m., Tuesday, March 20, 2018, at Heartland Funeral Home, with a short service beginning at 7 p.m.

Heidi Lea Schumacher was born July 13, 1970, in Watertown, SD, daughter of Andrew and Lynn (Jager) Schumacher. The family lived in Minneapolis until 1976, and then moved to Sioux Falls, SD. Heidi attended school in Sioux Falls and graduated from Washington High School in 1989. She continued her education at Dakota State and Killian Community College in Sioux Falls. Heidi worked various jobs in Sioux Falls, to include Embers and Kmart.

Heidi loved animals, especially her two Labrador Retrievers. Heidi enjoyed gardening, tending to the grounds of her apartment complex, and volunteering at The Banquet and Humane Society. She was a gifted shopper and would strategize coupons to purchase products for very little money. She would then donate her purchases to charities. Heidi loved to spend time with her nieces and nephews, spending hours coloring and playing board games with them. Heidi was an avid Pittsburgh Steelers fan and she made sure everyone knew it.

Deeply missing Heidi will be her mother, Lynn, Sioux Falls, SD; two brothers, Scott (Tabby) Schumacher, Sioux Falls, SD and Jason (Puja) Schumacher, Warsaw, Poland; her nieces and nephews, Corwin, Cambree, Andrew, Aria and Ella; her Labrador Retrievers, Romeo Rae and Moose; grandmother, Unice Jager, Minneapolis, MN; and many aunts, uncles, and cousins.

Heidi was preceded in death by her father, Andrew Schumacher.

    Sorry for your loss.

  • Heidi was a one of a kind treasure! She always engaged in conversation and made great eye contact with you and you could always tell there was a lot more going on behind those brown eyes. I had to duck out on her a couple times when I heard her voice in Lewis Drug, only because I was in a hurry to get back home and with Heidi there was no way to have a hurry up conversation.
    So sorry Lynn, Scott and Jason, the loss of a daughter and sibling is devastating,but just know that Heidi is safe in the arms of Jesus and she’s happier now than any of us can ever imagine. Until that day when you see her again take comfort in all the wonderful memories you shared.
    With much love and sadness for all of you,
    Dan & Jeannie

    So sorry to hear about Heidi – she has been coming to Sams for a long time and we will miss her smiling face, her friendly personality and her conversation. She always updated us on her big babies – Romeo and Moose. She would randomly bring in an item that she thought one or all of us would enjoy – very thoughtful items. She had been bugging us about not having 7 Up or Squirt – an ongoing fun banter- and recently we had gotten a distributor for such products and all of us were waiting for the first bottle to arrive so we could give one to Heidi. Matina and I (owners) knew of her games and cross collecting and when we found unique ones would get them for Heidi -her pleasure was always our delight. She will be missed. I will be out of town so I will not be able to attend her service. We will be sending a memorial in Heidis name to both the Human Society and the Banquet. God Bless – Susan and Crew at Sams bp Harrisburg.

    Heidi and I were the bestest of friends in our younger years. We lost track of each other over time. I remember the days we worked at embers. We were the Friday/Saturday crew! 5pm to 4am every weekend, then we would go to Shopko after work and send all our money on Christmas decorations. than Heidi made we work at Casa Del Rey’s. I bartended for the first time. She told Cory I have been doing it for years! Heidi had my back! I helped her paint her apt on waltz, helped her move on West Ave, where I help her hand when she had her teeth done. I am sad we grew apart over the years and never kept in touch. I will miss you and your snorts and laughs!!!
