Heather E. Hertzog, 62, of Wilmington, NC, died on May 11, 2017, surrounded by her close friends Janet Hubert, Annette Godfrey, and Peggy Schwende, all of Wilmington, and family.

She was preceded in death by her parents, Lois Nadine Koons Hertzog and Merrill Robert Hertzog, of Jeffersonville, PA, and her maternal grandmother, Alice Butler Koons Newlove.

What our families say...

“Michael Gubista and Jane Crowder did an excellent job taking care of my family and my precious husband. They were very compassionate and understanding. They treated my children and myself as if we were family. I could not have asked for better service.” – Pepper R.
