August 27, 1956 - July 30, 2020
Janet Kathleen Heidt, age 61, of East Point, Georgia passed away July 30, 2020 after losing a courageous battle with cancer. She was born in Albany Georgia and moved to Marietta where she graduated from Marietta High School. Her medical training prepared her for a career as a caring professional in hospitals and physicians’ offices. Kindness, love and generosity were her expression of her compassionate spirit. Janet enjoyed life and laughter. She was a captivating storyteller which morphed from entertaining children in the family and friends to performing as a standup comic in local venues, calling herself the SAP, Southern American Princess. She could also sing and dance, and freely did so, needing no audience, any time she heard her beloved music from the 60’s, 70’s, and 80’s. She was fiercely loyal to friends and family with a giving soul of goodness. Fondly known as the “crazy cat lady”, Janet was the hands and feet of Tri Cities Friends of Kitties, trapping, spaying and neutering colonies of homeless and feral cats. She built “catitats” for safe and warm housing and fed some colonies daily. Janet was pre-deceased by her father William Bartow Heidt. Janet is survived by her mother, Irene Sharman Heidt, her brother Steve Heidt (Sandra), sister Connie Heidt Kirk (Dempsey), several nieces and nephews, cousins and many dear friends. An outdoor memorial service will be held on August 29, 2020 at 11:00am at Brookdale Park on Sylvan Road. Masks and social distancing will be required. In lieu of flowers, please honor her memory with a gift to Tri Cities Friends of Kitties, Inc., 1287 Jefferson Ave., East Point, GA 30344. Mayes Ward-Dobbins is handling affairs.
