Heather Marie Stjernstrom was born on July 24, 1980, to Roland and Sandra Plaster. She graduated from Canton High School and was a member of the Heatwave Choir there. Heather was a Baptist of faith and grew up in Canton. As they were growing up, Heather and her brother, Ben, were very adventurous. They built a treehouse fort where Heather was in charge of decorations and Ben built the fence. They played in the fort almost on a daily basis from morning until late in the evening, loving the domesticated life early on. She loved to help in the kitchen where she learned to cook with her Momma and she loved helping out on the farm with the cows and chickens. One special memory with her brother happened during one of her favorite jobs on the farm, cutting brush. It was a nice Texas spring day, and it couldn't have been more than 70 degrees and Heather was unable to continue cutting brush because she was suffering from heat stroke only five minutes into the job. Ben couldn't come up with a good excuse, so he had to finish the job all by himself. Got to give you props on that one Sis!
