Heather Ravae was born April 7, 1993 in Corydon, Iowa. She grew up in Knoxville where she attended Knoxville Community Schools. In 2011, Heather was blessed with a daughter, Chloe. Heather was united in marriage to Logan Weldon, but the couple divorced. Heather graduated from Knoxville High School with the class of 2012.
On June 3, 2012, Heather started dating her best friend, Deryk “Marshmallow” Bingham. They were blessed with a son, Carter, in December of 2013. Heather was such a proud and loving mother.
Heather always loved taking care of people. She was proud to work for companies that allowed her to do just that. Heather enjoyed working for both Genesis Development in Indianola and for a daycare in New Sharon. Her positive and giving personality made her an excellent caregiver.
Heather always had a soft spot for dogs and cats. At one point, Heather and Deryk had seven dogs, as well as, two cats. When Deryk told her “no more dogs”, Heather just giggled. She was the queen of asking for forgiveness, instead of asking for permission. She was also just a little bit spoiled, determined, and strong-willed.
Family was always very important to Heather. She was very close to her family and was always there for them. If a family member needed help, Heather was there. Heather said that she knew that her last surgery was going to leave her children without their mother. She did everything that she could to plan for their future and to show them just how much she loved them. Her babies were her whole world.
Heather’s constant smile and life of the party personality will be greatly missed by so many. She is survived by her children, Chloe and Carter; parents, Ellen and Bobby Dudley; fiancé, Deryk Bingham; grandparents, Sonda and Mike Gabriel; siblings: Noah Ohannessian, Hunter Ohannessian, Brooke (Ben) Wright, Halle Dudley, Braiden Dudley; bonus siblings and best friends: Ashley Dudley, Aimee Grubb, and Rachel Wooldridge; uncle, Scott (Karleena) Lankford; along with many nieces, nephews, relatives and friends.
Heather was preceded in death by her aunt, Heather Gabriel; grandpa, Dave Lankford; great grandma, Ruby Boucher; along with many other extended relatives.
