Valentine's Dance in Memory of Murder Victim Heather Anne Stewart in Watertown this Saturday, February 13th
Two years ago, missing mother of four, Heather Anne Stewart, was found murdered in her car by the old Pick 'N Save parking lot in Watertown, WI.
Family and friends remember a woman who was dedicated to her children and making great strides in all aspects of her life.
"Her children were robbed of their mother's love by her youngest child's father," recalled good friend Amanda Stewart. "His desperate act of carelessness caused so many of us an eternal emptiness and sadness."
Together, family and friends came up with the idea of constructing a Memorial Peace Garden in her honor.
As well as a place where her children and those who loved her could go and reflect on her life.
Bruce Taylor, the owner of the property where Heather was found has graciously donated a piece of that land to build the garden.
The City of Watertown has also allowed the plan to take place.
The family has held a couple of events in order to raise money to get the ball rolling on the garden for Spring of 2016.
So far they half of the $5000.00 goal.
As a last attempt before Spring they've put together one final fundraising event on Saturday, February 13th.
The Valentine's Dance Party will happen at the Watertown Country Club, 1340 N. Water Street.
There will be a 50/50 raffle and silent auction and DJ with free snacks and beverages.
It runs 7 p.m.-midnight.
Tickets at the door are $30 a couple, $17 single.
Amanda was a special guest on the CBS 58 News at 4:30 p.m. Her interview is attached to this story.
