Heather Marie McGuire, of Lombard, formerly of Elmhurst, finished her life’s journey suddenly on Tuesday, Nov. 29, 2022, at the age of 46. She was the cherished daughter of George and Dorothy McGuire; devoted sister of Amber (Dave) Lemar and Drew (Megan) McGuire; amazing aunt of Delaney and Liam Lemar, and Caden and Emersyn McGuire. She is remembered by her aunts, uncles, many cousins and friends. She was a friend to anyone who met her.
Heather was a graduate of York High School and earned her Bachelor of Science degree from St. Mary’s University in Winona, Minn. Heather lived her life with passion and love. She adored her nieces and nephews and they in turn loved their “Auntie Heather.” Heather enjoyed music, softball, bowling, Chicago sport teams, especially the Cubbies. She especially loved family gatherings, cousins’ nights, dinners with friends, driveway parties with her neighbors and cheering on the sidelines or audiences for her nieces, nephews and younger cousins. She lived up to the title of “Super Aunt.” She cherished her relationships with her friends so deeply and always made them a priority in her life. She will be missed by everyone who knew and loved her.
