Heidi Kupka, kind-hearted, loving sister, daughter, aunt, and hard worker passed away unexpectedly on May 13, 2022, at the age of 49.


Heidi was born on November 16, 1972, in Charles City, Iowa to Mark and Bonnie (Bonita) Kupka. She attended Charles City High School and graduated in 1992. Heidi went on to graduate from Iowa Central Community College with an Associates of Arts Degree.


Heidi spent her working life in a variety of positions including many years as a laundry aide and most recently working in guest services at Johnston Hy-Vee. She was most proud of the opportunities where she was helping others.

Heidi was a very kind-hearted, loving sister, daughter, Aunt, and an especially conscientious worker. She was small in stature but mighty in spirit and had so much love to give. Heidi demonstrated an appreciation for even the smallest gesture of support others provided her.

Heidi will be missed by many and will be forever in our hearts.
