Heather Ann Behrens, 31, passed away on October 21st at 7:15 pm at the University of Minnesota. She passed away after fighting her long battle with Congenital Heart Disease. Heather was born on November 10th, 1989 in Fargo, North Dakota. Where she grew up surrounded by her family and went to school. After high school she went on to become a CNA and wished to become a nurse. Then later in life she went on to go to college at Rasmussen College to become a child life advocate. She always worked hard and even when her heart was getting bad, she wished to keep working. She always wanted to help those in need and wanted to get a degree in social work to help people. She loved being surrounded by family and planning gatherings surrounded by those she loved. She was a loving and caring sister, aunt, and daughter. She is survived by her parents- Brenda and Darrel; 3 Siblings- Jeremy (Aimee), Alyssa (Mike), and Jordyn “Pluto”; 8 Nieces and Nephews- Elizabeth, Kristian, Jason, Isabella “Teddy”, Mara, Noah, Eliseo, and “Expected Baby Boy”; and her Fiancée- Aarin Nygaard. She is preceded in death by two grandpas, a grandma, and an aunt. In lieu of flowers Heather wished that people would donate to the North Dakota Make-a-Wish Foundation. She also wished for everyone to not wear black as it is a celebration of life and not a funeral.
