Heidi Anne Sory’s brilliant and beautiful time on earth came to a peaceful end on Sunday, April 23rd, 2017. Heidi was born in Mesa, Arizona, to Jeff Allen Sory and Liza Jane Sutton in the middle of a hot summer day on July 12, 1990. Throughout her 26 years, Heidi carried that warmth with her, touching many lives and caring and counseling friends. We didn’t know then that when she carried a lantern as part of the Children of Light in the 2002 Olympic Opening Ceremonies, she was really carrying her own bright spirit for the world to see. Heidi was very intelegent, making the Honor Roll many times as a student and becoming a talented I.T. guru. Her greatest joy and the center of her universe was her sweet, social butterfly of a daughter, Kyla, who she often called “Bug”, “Smalls”, and “Kylamoo.” Heidi was a fighter and had worked very hard in recent years through life’s ups, downs, and challenges when she died in her sleep. From now on, Kyla’s entire family will help Heidi rest in peace knowing that her daughter is well taken care of and loved deeply. Kyla’s grandfather, Jeff, says through “Bug” the family has found a way to always carry Heidi’s sweet laugh, smile, and caring spirit with them the rest of their lives. Heidi is survived by her daughter, Kyla Nicole Sory (age 4), her parents: father, Jeff Allen Sory, and mother, Liza Smith (nee Sutton) her grandparents: Ann Kleineberg, Kay and Randy Osborne, aunts: Terri Sory, Chantay, and BrieAnna Osborne. Brothers: William, and Kristopher Sory-King; Joshua, Joel, Zachary, and Reuban Smith, and numerous cousins and extended family. A memorial service will be held on Saturday April 29, 2017, were friends may call at 4:00 PM. Memorial services begin at 5:00 PM at the Taylorsville 13th Ward meeting house at 1495 Tamarack Rd. Taylorsville, Utah 84123.
