Heather Lee Hermann

Heather Lee Hermann, née Crew, age 55, died peacefully at her home in Tiburon, California, on May 10, 2017 surrounded by her loving family. She fought a courageous 17-month battle with pancreatic cancer.
Heather is survived by her husband, Chadd Hermann; daughters Megan and Kendall; and mother Robin Crew of San Francisco. Heather was predeceased by her father, Eugene Crew, and her brother, Christopher Crew.

Heather, a native of San Francisco, attended Frederick Burke Elementary, Lick-Wilmerding High School, California State University at Chico, and is a graduate of California Polytechnic State University. Heather grew up a cheerful and giving child. She was a Girl Scout and participated in many school social clubs. She loved sports, was an excellent volleyball player and the first girl to make the boys high school baseball team. She loved skiing, running and especially dancing.

Post-college Heather took adventurous jobs, first in the 1984 Los Angeles Summer Olympics and then modeling in New York before beginning a career in sales and marketing. Heather was always a dedicated and conscientious worker, but made time for her true passion of travel and adventure. Heather married Chadd in 1998 and they were blessed with their two lovely daughters, Megan and Kendall. Heather gave up her career and focused her love and passion on motherhood, being ever-present in her girls' lives and providing a sound moral foundation while setting the gold standard in birthday parties and childhood activities.

The family lived from 2007 to 2014 in Bangkok, Thailand, where Heather thrived in the multicultural international community, making it a true home for her daughters and husband. She was the ultimate wife and soul mate to her husband and a loving, devoted daughter. Heather lived life to its fullest with infectious joy and an inviting charm that endeared her to so many. She was generous, meticulous, intelligent, and a loving friend. Heather was determined to love and shower those around her with her precious personalized and unforgettable gifts. She was a legendary party planner and notorious jokester. She made the most of every event and was the life of the party. She was passionate about her many travel adventures and was enthusiastic about everything in life. Heather will be missed dearly.

A funeral was held at McAvoy O'Hara Evergreen Mortuary in San Francisco May 19. The family would appreciate that any donations, in lieu of any flowers, be made to the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network, www.pancan.org, or to Hospice by the Bay, www.hospicebythebay.org.
