Christy Heard

October 29, 1963 — October 8, 2018

Beloved mother, daughter, sister, aunt, and friend, Christy Stanley Heard, peacefully passed away at her residence on October 8th, 2018. She was 54. Christy was born October 29, 1963 in Rome, Georgia. She attended Coosa High School and graduated in 1981. Christy worked as an accountant, as well as, side-by-side with her family for several years at Stanley's on North Broad where she was always a friendly, welcoming face.

Christy battled breast cancer for many years, and during this time, became a Board Certified mastectomy fitter for DiPrima Medical. In those years, Christy was an unwavering advocate for women battling the disease and helped everyone she encountered heal and feel beautiful. A lover of nature and plants, she was also an advocate for all animals in need; loving and taking care of many dogs and cats, nursing a squirrel back to health, and even a raccoon.

Christy touched the hearts of many with her unmistakable laugh, quick humor, and uplifting view of the world. She will be greatly missed. Christy is survived by her son, Noah Heard; her mother and father, Ann Erwin Stanley and Lee Roy Stanley; and her siblings, Adam Stanley, Debbie Stanley DiPrima, Keith Stanley, and Lee Ann Stanley Davis.
