Heather Marie Stjernstrom was born on July 24, 1980 to Roland & Sandra Plaster. She graduated from Canton Highschool and was a member of the Heatwave Choir there. Heather was a Baptist of Faith and grew up in Canton, TX. As they were growing up, Heather and her brother Ben were very adventurous. They built a treehouse fort where Heather was in charge of decorations and Ben built the fence. They played in the fort almost on a daily basis from morning until late in the evening, loving the domesticated life early on. She loved to help in the kitchen where she learned to cook with her Momma and she loved helping out on the farm with the cows and chickens. One special memory her brother has happened during one of her “favorite” jobs on the farm, cutting brush. It was a nice Texas spring day, couldn’t have been more than 70 degrees and Heather was unable to continue cutting brush because she was suffering from heat stroke only 5 minutes into the job. Ben couldn’t come up with a good excuse so he had to finish the job all by himself. Got to give you props on that one Sis!!!!

Heather and Magnus met in 2016, they fell in love, and were married on September 16, 2017. They lived and raised their children in The Colony, TX where they enjoyed many family game nights and sitting on the patio in front of the fire pit. Heather loved entertaining her friends and family through food and music. She hosted annual Friends-giving dinners for her closest friends and loved family Thanksgivings and Christmas mornings with her husband and kids.

Heather lived life to the fullest, occasionally pulling out her guitar to sing one of her favorite tunes. Her friends knew her by Miss B, H-Town or just plain H. Heather's favorite saying was “When words fail music speaks.” She loved being the center of attention in pageants or while singing. Heather also enjoyed writing songs, baking, cooking, decorating, and she was great at fishing if you could get her out there! She loved the movie “Walk the Line” and her favorite TV show was Friends. Heather liked country music, especially Miranda Lambert. She loved laughing at herself and was famous, or infamous depending on your perspective, for saying the oddest things at the oddest times.

She is most remembered for being genuine, true to her friends, and accepting of others. Heather had a way of making people feel comfortable around her. She was loyal to her friends; the glue to her friend groups, especially the “Love Square.” She is remembered for always putting others before herself.

Heather is preceded in death by her grandparents, Luther & Gladys Plaster; and great-grandparents, Benjamin & Mabel Thornton and Eldon & Alice Hues.

She is survived by her loving husband, Magnus Stjernstrom; son, Dylan Plaster; step-daughter, Maddie Stjernstrom; parents, Roland & Sandra Plaster; grandparents, William & Betty Thornton; and brother Ben Plaster (Jenn) as well as many cousins and other relations.

Heather was an amazing woman. She was always the stepmom I always wish I had. She was very caring, fun, and loving and always made everyone around her happier. Being around her always made me smile, and so did her cooking :) I know her fun spirited personality is going to be missed by so many people (including myself).

Although I didn’t know you very long, we immediately clicked. You became one of my favorite people I was blessed know here in the neighborhood. You were always ready to help, lend a hand or just lend an ear. You were the purveyor of the perfect selfie and never took a bad picture! I’m going to miss you but I know you’re safe and happy. Love you, boo.

The service for your lovely Heather was beautiful. I just want to tell you how deeply sorry I am for your loss.

I remember her lovely golden hair as she would be playing outside. She reminded me then of an Angel. She could be a little bit bossy with Ben. She truly loved you Ben. I could see that too.

I know she will be missed by all who knew and love her.

I met Heather once but she made me feel as if I had known her all my life.
I am thankful and forever grateful that I got to meet her that one time with Magnus .

I spent the better part of a day with Heather and her Mom at the Canton Fall Festival. Heather had her clothes from LuLuB and was proud to come back to Canton and be a part of the festivities and see her old friends. Dylan was with us helping to set up clothing and making an emergency trip to Wal Mart to get another tent.
And then the flood came. It was all we could do to keep the clothes dry but with Heather’s ingenuity we managed.

From the first time I met Heather she welcomed me into her circle. From that point on I never felt like an outsider when she was around. She always made me feel welcome and wanted at any event. I think she made everyone feel that way. She cared for and loved fiercely all of her friends and especially her family. She will be missed but not forgotten. My love and thoughts go out to her husband, children, and the rest of her family.

I worked with Heather for a long time, and we became good friends, like family. I hate that I didn't talk to her enough, but I love the memories we have together. My favorite is... Me and Heather had a favorite song together, and till this day, whenever we saw one another we would sing it. She was a friend , like a sister, she use to babysit my son when he was younger. Heather you will be missed but not forgotten... You were a Angel long before you got to Heaven ❤️ I will miss you, and I will cherish the memories and love you left behind Forever.... Love, Big Mel...

I just heard about Heather today and my heart hurts. I met Heather and Magnus when they moved in next door to us. What impressed me about Heather was her friendly and bubbly personality. She was so warm, funny and down-to-earth. There were always fun get-togethers at her home. Heather loved having friends and family around playing ping-pong or having BBQ's. I remember last year we were both decorating our golf carts for our neighborhood 4th of July festival and giving each other kudos about our work. She was so gracious, even though her cart blew mine away!

Magnus and Heather were always smiling and their happiness was obvious. Magnus, my prayers and thoughts are with you and your family during your loss. In time, my hope is that your memories will both comfort and strengthen you. I was blessed and honored to have met Heather, though the time was too brief.

I will never forget the first time I met Heather. Without any doubt, she took me and my family in as her own, and made us feel welcome in your home.
I really enjoyed the laughs we had when I teached her some Swedish, through Skype, for your wedding. Tillsammans för evigt. ❤️
I will never forget her, or how happy Magnus always looked when they were toghether. She will leave an empty whole in our lives and will be trule and deeply missed by me and William. ❤️
