Heather Alaina (Beckwith) Carroll of Hollister, Calif. joined her loving, heavenly Father on Oct. 10, 2012. Heather was a great mom and a dearly loved wife, daughter, granddaughter, sister and friend to everyone who knew her.
Heather was born March 26, 1987 in Aberdeen, Wash., and spent the first year of her life at Lake Quinault, Wash. In 1988 her father, Mark, a member of United States Army, was assigned to Germany where they lived until 1993 when the family moved to Suquamish, Wash., where Heather attended school.
Heather and her family were members of Bayside Community Church in Kingston where she was involved in Sunday school, children’s choir, and other activities. She lived there until 2004, moving to Las Vegas, Nev., where she met her husband Grady.
Riley, Heather and Grady’s son, was born in Las Vegas on July 7, 2007. Riley was the love of Heather’s life. She was an exceptional mother not only to her son, but regularly cared for other children in her home. In 2011, Heather, Grady and Riley moved to Hollister, Calif., near Grady’s parents Mike and Susan Carroll.
Heather was a very loving person. Many of her friends described her as “an angel.” She gave freely of her time and resources to others.
Heather is preceded in death by her grandmothers, Shirley O. Reeves and Judith C. Ogle. She is survived by her son, Riley Adam Carroll, and husband, Grady Carroll of Hollister; her father and mother, Mark and Mardi Beckwith of Prosser, Wash.; her sister, April Souza of Wasilla, Alaska; brother, Matthew Beckwith of Long Island, N.Y.; and her grandfathers, Harold Reeves of Silverdale and John C. Ogle of Danville, Wash., along with numerous aunts, uncles, cousins and adoring friends.
There will be a memorial service in honor of her precious life on Oct. 18, 2 p.m. at Bayside Community Church, 25992 Barber Cut Off Road NE, Kingston. A potluck luncheon will be served immediately following the service.
