Heidi Marie Hetz, of Cape Elizabeth, passed away on December 8, 2018 in Scarborough, Maine.

She is survived by her son, Joshua Dayton; brother Peter and his wife Marianne; brother, Gordon; her sister Bettina; nephew Christopher; and nieces Tara, Tatiana and Isabella.

Heidi was the daughter of the late Hellmut and Romaine Hetz of Wilton, Ct. In life she loved nature, animals, and sewing. She owned a small quilt shop in South Portland, Maine, and would regularly make gifts for clients, friends and, family.

Like her mother, Heidi was an advocate for the mentally ill. She helped to support her younger brother, Christopher (deceased 2008), when he developed a mental illness.

The family encourages anyone who is so inclined to make donations to the National Alliance on Mental Illness in her name.
