Christy was born on July 26, 1960, in Audubon, Iowa, one of three daughters to Donald Lee and Norma Mae (Spieker) Petersen. She was a 1978 graduate of Audubon High School. Christy was united in marriage to Timmie Lee Heim on February 10, 1979, in Lansing, Iowa. To this union, two children were born, Heather and Jeremy. She was a long-time service manager for the Late Basil Hadjis at the Vernon Inn of Cedar Rapids. Christy and Timmie together owned and operated Heim Construction, of which she was the Business Manager for many years. She and Timmie later divorced. Christy also worked many years for City Wide Cleaners as a delivery person. Most recently, she had worked for three years at the Hy-Vee Market Grille on Mt. Vernon Road as a food server, until the Covid-19 pandemic prevented her from working. Christy enjoyed traveling, talking to her customers at the Market Grille, and going out with her friends. She loved spending time with her family, especially her three granddaughters. Christy always had an infectious laugh and a fun-loving bubbly personality; she will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved her. Christy is survived and lovingly remembered by her son, Jeremy (Amanda) Heim of Marion; two sisters, Cathy Hansen (Steve Powers) of Ankeny, Iowa, and Cheryl (Bill) Bush of Laurens, Iowa; three granddaughters, Jada, Lily, and Hazel; many friends including Bunny Mulligan of Marion; and several nieces and nephews. She was preceded in death by her parents; and her daughter, Heather Heim.
