Heather Daghestani Osteen, 43, beloved wife, daughter, sister, and friend passed from this life on March 9, 2021. She was born in 1977 in Columbia, South Carolina, where she grew up in the northeast area, went to school, and married. She and her husband, David Milton Osteen, Jr., settled their lives together in a country home near Blythewood, South Carolina. Those who knew Heather will remember a kind and loving friend who valued the simple pleasures and beauty of the outdoors. She loved animals and her heart belonged to her energetic dachshund, Turbo. Heather was talented, creative, and generous. The only thing she loved more than designing and creating her own line of beautiful jewelry was when she gave it away to her friends and loved ones.

Heather is survived by her loving husband, David M. Osteen, Jr. of Blythewood, SC; her parents, Sandra and Hani Daghestani of Columbia, SC; her devoted sister, Reema Daghestani of Atlanta, GA; her in-laws, Georgia and David M. Osteen, Sr. and brother-in-law, Todd Osteen of Lugoff, SC. Survivors also include her uncles, Donald Amick (Dianne) and Richard Amick (Cindy) of Prosperity, SC; Mousoud Daghestani of Serbia; aunts, Lynn A. Burns of West Union, SC and Karen A. West of Prosperity, SC and numerous cousins, friends, and her beloved dog, Turbo. Heather was predeceased by her grandparents, Abdalla and Fozieh Daghestani of Damascus, Syria and Floyd and Sarah Amick of Prosperity, SC; aunt, Jean A. Munn (James) of Columbia, SC and an uncle and four aunts from Damascus, Syria on her father’s side of the family; Marwan Daghestani, Amira D. Safadi, Seham D. Kanawati, Amal D. Affan and Narmine D. Omari.

A celebration of life service honoring Heather will be held in Columbia, SC at a date and time in the future when family and friends can gather safely. In lieu of flowers, memorials to the charity of your choice would be a preferred remembrance.

Heather was always very nice to me. Heather was a person that would do anything for you, and she would try her best to make sure that you were doing okay. She was always very upfront, and honest to me. Anytime I called on her she would always come through, and we would have great conversations in person, and on the phone. I always enjoyed Heather, and her smile. She really loved life, and she treated me with sincere, and the upmost respect, and that’s what I appreciated about her the most. She was a person that I could really count on, and talk to about anything. Heather will be missed but not forgotten. I personally have a heavy heart knowing that Heather is no longer with us but she is with us spiritually, and one day we will all see her again. To Heather’s parents my Prayers are with you. Just know that your daughter was an awesome young lady that I will always cherish, and deeply miss. To Heather’s sister Reema my Prayers are with you. I want you to know that you Reema did all you could for your sister, and I know that she deeply appreciated everything that you did do for her. Reema think about all the good times that you, and Heather had. Reema those good times will make you laugh, and help you to get through your loss. To Heather’s husband David. David I know that you loved Heather tremendously, and you also supported her in every means possible. David you provided everything to Heather by being a true man, and showed her the respect that all men should give women. David my Prayers are with you as well. To the whole family, and everyone that Heather came in contact with, and touched just remember to have the faith, and know that one day will all see each other again. To the family, and everyone else I love you all, and I’m here if you need anything at all. Rest in peace my friend till we see each other again. Thanks again, Brian Hewitt
