Marlborough – Heidi L. Hershberger, 58, died Aug. 4, 2018 after a courageous battle with ovarian cancer.
She was born in Wadsworth, Ohio, the daughter of the late Glenn E. Hershberger and Marilyn (Keener) Hershberger of Wadsworth, Ohio. She lived in Marlborough for the last 22 years.
Heidi worked as a Research Associate for Proctor and Gamble, Associate Director of Project Management for MTRA and was currently working as Director of Strategic Partnerships for Boston Scientific.
Heidi will always be remembered as an avid gardener who was always willing to offer advice to friends and colleagues. Co-workers looked forward to her Christmas cookies and Heidi never disappointed. Her favorite vacation place was Acadia National Park where she spent two weeks each year volunteering on trail maintenance projects.
Besides her mother, she is survived by three sisters, Glenna Hershberger, Susan Breen, and Amy Hamlin, and her long-time best friend, Martha Plaza, plus many cousins and relatives.
