Heather loved photography and collecting antique cameras. She collected all the works of her favorite author Shirley Jackson. She loved decorating for Christmas, and most importantly spending time with her family, friends, and colleagues.

Heather was preceded in death by her grandparents, Richard and Vera Yackel.

She is survived by her husband, David Merrill; mother, Linda Yackel; and many aunts, uncles, nieces, and several cousins.
