Heather Alane Lewis Hunter, born December 10, 1973, passed from this life on Friday, July 22, 2022. Originally from Monroe County, she led a rich life full of diverse experiences. She was a stay-at-home mother for many years before venturing into retail management at Macy’s in Dover, Delaware. At age 46, she accomplished a lifelong dream of becoming a flight attendant, where she successfully served Spirit Airlines, based out of Chicago, Illinois.

Since her unexpected passing, many people from around the country have shared stories of the great kindnesses Heather extended to them, some of them life changing. She will be missed terribly.
