Brittney Ann Heying was born on April 30, 1997, to Mike and Dawn (Babcock) Heying at Covenant Medical Center in Waterloo. She was welcomed at home by big sister Stephanie, and later, she did the same for her little brother, Zach. Her family lived in Ionia for about 10 years and then moved to New Hampton. She had a sunny personality, although she could sass you, too. But she’d flash you that Brittney smile, and you just couldn’t help but love her zest for life and her sassiness, too. She attended elementary and middle school in New Hampton before entering New Hampton High School in the fall of 2011. Brittney was an outstanding student who participated in track and cross country. She was involved in the school’s SADD program and served as the group’s president. She was active in the I-Step program, which encouraged young people to stay away from tobacco products, and she was part of an Odyssey of the Mind team that advanced to the national tournament and placed third. Between her junior and senior year, Brittney served as a delegate to the American Legion Auxiliary’s Girls State program, and she was a member of her school’s National Honor Society chapter, as well as its Extended Learning Program. After graduating from New Hampton High School in 2015, Brittney took college classes at the University of Iowa, Hawkeye Community College and Kirkwood Community College, and she was enrolled in classes this fall. She worked a variety of jobs and was both an EMT and CNA, and, more often than not, she held down two jobs. She was currently working at both Wells Fargo and Red Robbins in Cedar Rapids. She volunteered at Camp Hope for Children and was also a volunteer with the Chickasaw Rescue Squad. Brittney is survived by her parents, Mike and Dawn Heying of New Hampton; one brother, Zach Heying of New Hampton; one sister, Stephanie Heying of New Hampton; grandparents, Steve and Shirley Babcock of New Hampton and Dee Dee and Dennis Collins of New Hampton; aunts and uncles, Brad (Becky) Babcock of New Hampton, Roger (Irene) Heying of Harpers Ferry, IA, Shari (Dale) Blocker of Ionia, IA, Larry (Cindy) Heying of New Hampton, Greg (Nancy) Heying of New Hampton, Ken (Luann) Heying of North Washington, Randy (Jennifer) Heying of New Hampton and Doc (Jackie) Heying of Rochester, MN; many cousins.
