Heather Langford Dehart, 40, of Roanoke went to be with the Lord on Tuesday, March 29, 2011. Born in Pearisburg on August 9, 1970, she will always be the beloved daughter of James and Barbara Langford of Pembroke. She graduated from William Fleming High School and National College, and was earning her Masterís Degree in accounting, but she was happiest when spending time with her much loved son and grandson.

She was preceded in death by her grandparents Orbie Cumbee and Pauline Atkins Cumbee and Raymond Langford; her uncle Donnie Cumbee; and her aunt Betty Dowdy. Heather was loving, kind and gentle like her mother and quick with a laugh like her father. She loved everyone and was loved by everyone in return and was always ready to greet her friends and family with a smile and a hug. We will miss those hugs until we meet again.
