Leisa Heidman

Leisa Lynn Heidman joined her love of 20 plus years, Richard Roger Burgess, on June 24, 2022 in Kanab, UT at the age of 57. She was on steady decline since the passing of Richard a year ago almost to the day. She was born in Reno, NV on June 6, 1965 to Everett W. Burger and Carol A. Lanning. Leisa moved to Kanab in 1997 to care for her father who passed in October 1999. She had an adventurous soul and refused to believe there wasn’t anything she couldn’t do. She loved to socialize and bring laughter to everyone that surrounded her. Leisa had a deep love for our Saviour, Jesus Christ and her children. She loved to brag that her children were her greatest achievements. Leisa was preceded in death by her parents Everett and Carol and her life partner Richard. She is survived by bonus mom Jan Dixon, sister Mary Ellen Burger, 3 children Chase Holm, Leyessa (Leysi) Payne, Scott VanSlooten, 12 grandchildren and 1 great grandchild (soon to be 2). She will be missed and her memory will be passed down for generations to come. A grave side service will be held on July 12, 2022 at 10:00 AM at the Kanab City Cemetery where she will be buried next to family.
