Many of the young people she worked with considered Heidi a beloved second mother to them.


Heidi’s pride and joy were in her children, Kenneth (19) and Elizabeth (15) Drelich, and she spent every spare moment attending their school and sporting events and encouraging them in their endeavors. She enjoyed spending time at the beach, at the family camp, and outdoors with them. Family relationships were important to Heidi, and she loved cultivating traditions and spending time over meals with those she loved.


Heidi was preceded in death by her parents. In addition to her children, Kenneth and Elizabeth Drelich, she is survived by her siblings, Chris Gage (Melodie), Lorrie Gage (Jim Thornton), Marissa Gage, and Ben Gage; her niece and nephews; her partner, Leland John Arris, and his children and grandson.


A memorial service will be held at Falmouth Congregational Church on Saturday, October 28, at 1:00 p.m. with a reception to follow.
