Kortney Elizabeth Heath, age 35, of Austin, Texas, formerly of Lansing, entered her heavenly home on August 27, 2020, passing away unexpectedly at the Ascension Seton Medical Center in Austin from asthma complications.
Kortney was your typical, non-typical girl. Typical in the fact she loved to go shopping for clothes and shoes, hanging out with her friend, and enjoying a great steak; even if it was only a few bites. Non-typical in that Kortney usually took the path less traveled and marched to the beat of her own drum. She was less concerned with what other people thought of her and more concerned with blazing her own trail. Kortney would light up any room she walked into and it didn’t take her long to make new friends wherever she went.
While Kortney’s family is devastated by her sudden passing, they are comforted knowing that she is now in the presence of Jesus, her Lord and Savior, and that Kortney was able to help many other people as a Gift of Life Donor.
Surviving Kortney are her parents, Rick & Mary Seely of Belding; grandparents, Robert & Mary Heath of Fenwick; brothers and sisters, Scott & Donna Seely of China Township; Rebecca & Chris Nelson of Lexington, Kentucky; Jonathan Seely & Kimber Jannke of Crystal River, Florida; Britney & James Witzel of Stanton; Mekkena & James Reid of Ferndale; aunts and uncles, Bob & Gina Heath of Fenwick; Laurie & Marty Ross of Fenwick; Marcia & Steve Pung of St. Johns; Bunny & Lewis Meriam of Berea, Ohio; and many nieces, nephews, and cousins.
Kortney is preceded in death by her niece, Jillian Seely and special friend, Shawn Vines.
A memorial service celebrating Kortney’s life is being held on Sunday, September 6, 2020, at The Barn at Adams Acres (10655 Belding Road, Belding) beginning at 11 AM with Pastor Ken Harger officiating.
