Heather Mestdagh Obituary, Death – Dr. Heather Mestdagh, who was born on June 15, 1980 in Atlanta, Georgia, and later moved to Columbia, Illinois, died away on May 17, 2023 at Mercy South in St. Louis, Missouri, at the age of 42. She was surrounded by her family and loved ones. Heather spent her childhood in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada, a city that will forever have a special place in her heart despite the fact that she was born in the United States. In 2007, she moved from Canada to St. Louis, Missouri, in order to carry on the chiropractic family business started by her parents.
It was in this location that she received her chiropractic degree from Logan University. After receiving her degree, she started working as a chiropractor at Mestdagh Chiropractic, where she would spend her days working alongside her father and mentor for almost 12 years until his retirement at the end of 2021, after which she took over the practice. Heather had a genuine concern for the well-being of her patients. She was always thrilled by the possibility of alleviating the suffering of another person and restoring to them a component of themselves that they had come to believe was irretrievably lost.
She was able to make a significant impact on the lives of members of the community as well as a large number of friends and personal relationships thanks to her service. Heather’s ability to give gifts was her secret weapon. When you brought up something that you had an interest in, she made a mental note of it. When it came time for Christmas or your birthday, your face would light up with excitement as you rummaged among sparkly ribbons and wrapping paper in search of the ideal present. She had a way of elevating already momentous occasions to a higher level of significance. She took great pleasure in making other people happy.
Heather was also a huge foodie, a traveler, a deal hunter, a music lover and concert goer, and she liked to unwind from a hard day of work by watching a compelling mystery thriller before going to bed. She looked forward to the weekends so that she could spend time with her family discovering new locations to go and activities to participate in. She had a soft spot in her heart for stray animals and even took in a stray cat at one point, who is now a member of the family. Her memory will endure through many people and for all time since she led a vibrant and amazing life.
Survived by her husband Alex Muertz; her daughter Winnie; her parents Laurie Mestdagh and Catherine Heuthorst; her grandparents Dorothy Patricia Barron and Roy Lewis Barron; her sister Sarah Mestdagh; her brother James Mestdagh and his wife Jade Mestdagh; her brother Sumner Mestdagh; her nephews Hudson and Harlan; and her furball Munchies the cat. She will be greatly missed.
