Heather Koehler

Heather was born Heather Dawn Koehler on June 7th, 1976 in Richland, Washington. She was the second child of Kenneth Koehler and Joanna Schug. She spent a majority of her life living in Richland, Washington. Heather graduated from Richland High School in June of 1995.

Over the years, Heather worked at many jobs including Arby’s and Joe’s Chevron. In 2010, she began her job at Round Table Pizza where she later became the assistant manager alongside her older sister Sheri. In 2004, she began dating her now spouse of 17 years Richard Peterson. She had one daughter from a previous relationship, Cheyenne Covlin. Heather loved going dancing, especially when her father played music, as well as spending time with her family and friends. She was best known for her incredible people skills and her ability to have a good sense of humor no matter what was going on, which she held onto until the very end.

She will be joining her grandfather John Todd, her grandparents Francis and Allen Koehler, her uncles Don Moore and Charles Koehler and her step mother Kathy Koehler.
