When Miranda C’era Heidt walked into the room, those in her company felt energy, an enthusiastic spontaneity. This was just one example of who Miranda was and how she impacted those around her. Miranda was a clever and gregarious person who always sought out the finest attributes in other people. It was as if Miranda wanted to share all of their experiences, revel in their lives and celebrate their discoveries. Miranda was tireless and had boundless enthusiasm that would serve her well throughout her life.

Miranda was born on July 18, 2003 at St. Bernard's Hospital in Chicago, Illinois to Jennifer Walker and Jamal Heidt. She was raised with two older brothers, Jamal and Joshua Heidt. Miranda was very accepting and supportive of her family. She was perceived as the central person in her family in terms of keeping communication open between the family members. Always at the ready with a good joke, she grew up to be quite a humorous person. While some who knew Miranda might describe her as an idealist, her friends and family understood well that Miranda was always in pursuit of life’s endless possibilities and opportunities available to her.

As a young girl, Miranda was able to empathize and identify with a vast array of people and personality types. This quality drew her into a diverse group of friends and acquaintances. Miranda was intelligent and had little trouble getting along with her peers. She was almost always the first to jump in when it came to playing games or participating in other childhood activities. In her spare time she liked arts and crafts, drawing, playing X-Box One, and loved listening to music. Miranda's memorable achievements included overcoming her first bout of cancer. Miranda had the ability to find amusement with almost any activity she and the many childhood friends she shared might discover.

During her school years, Miranda responded enthusiastically to any new project and was regularly in search of one adventure after another. Miranda was a very good student, and generally did well in her courses. Miranda absorbed as much as she could from all of her teachers and was consistently able to tackle conceptual and abstract problems, using her imagination to master her assignments. For Miranda, school often became just an extension of playtime, thanks to her ability to turn just about anything into a game. Classmates considered Miranda a good listener, knowing that when necessary, they could go to her to discuss just about anything. Her favorite class in high school was animation.

With a talent for making acquaintances easily which in turn brought her an endless stream of friends, Miranda was very sociable and could blend without effort into any social group. Assertive and outgoing, Miranda was easy to know and demonstrated a deep concern for others. She always seemed aware of what was going on with people around her and throughout her life she made many, many friends. While growing up, her best friend was Tellisa Jones. Later in life, she became friends with Cleyber, Leila, Josh, Layla, Jasmine, and Consuelo.

Miranda's love of improvising in her daily life was a perfect fit for her enjoyment of traveling. Her favorite vacations were ones that were not planned. Traveling in a casual manor fit her personality well. Excited about seeing changing scenery and constantly looking for the enjoyment life could offer, Miranda took her vacations seriously, well, as seriously as she possibly could. Favorite vacations included Waikiki Beach, Hawaii, Disney World, and touring the World Exhibit in Epcot Center.

Miranda was a lover of animals and cherished her cats Uno, Garth and Princess.

Miranda Heidt passed away on January 7, 2019 at Las Vegas, Nevada after fighting a really hard battle against rhabdomyosarcoma, a very rare form of cancer. She is survived by her mother Jennifer, father Jamal, and brothers Joshua and Jamal. Services were held at Palm Southwest Mortuary, Las Vegas.

There was always a certain style and inventiveness to Miranda. She was a dynamic, self-expressive person who was forever looking to celebrate the endless possibilities life had to offer. She had a knack for being clever, creative and witty, and for others, was a joy to be around. While she was often fiercely independent, it seemed as if many others looked to Miranda Heidt for inspiration, leadership, wisdom and even courage. Miranda was always more than willing to share life’s experiences with her loved ones.
