Heidi Lombardo passed away at home on Monday, Dec. 19, 2005. She was 63 years old.
Heidi was born on Nov. 6, 1942 in Oak Park, Ill., to Herbert and Lois E. (Abraham) Roehrs. On July 2, 1960, Heidi married Jared T. Lombardo in San Diego. Heidi and Jerry, along with their two children, Nancy Allison and Tim Lombardo, moved to Glenwood Springs in December 1977. They founded the Roaring Fork Waterbeds business, which is now known as Roaring Fork Furniture. They have been active members of Mountain View Church since its beginning.
Heidi loved the Lord and her family. She was a wonderful example of a person who displayed her love through sacrificial giving. She loved to laugh and was always positive. Over her lifetime, she enjoyed daily exercise and boating at Lake Powell and San Diego. She rode motorcycles with her husband, skied, and loved to cook and go shopping.
In late November, she was diagnosed with terminal cancer, which took her life in four weeks. She will be loved and greatly missed by the many people that she so deeply impacted in her community.
She is survived by her husband, Jerry; her son, Timothy J. Lombardo; her daughter, Nancy L. Allison and her husband, Scott Allison; her grandchildren Josh, Bailey, Isaac, Tabitha and Abigail; her mother, Lois E. Roehrs; her brothers, Herbert Roehrs of Steamboat Springs and Peter Roehrs (Patti) of San Diego; her sister Nancy Russell (Bill) and many nieces and nephews in the San Diego area.
A celebration service to remember Heidi’s life in Christ will take place at 10:30 a.m. Wednesday, Dec. 28, at Mountain View Church, 2195 County Road 154, in south Glenwood Springs, next to Buffalo Valley. The Rev. Dave Pearson will officiate. In the spring of 2006, there will be a private family ceremony as her ashes are buried with Betty Allison at Rosebud Cemetery.
