Former Knight Heidi Marshall Adams Grieved
September 23, 2014
The Knights extend sympathies to and join the family and friends of Heidi Marshall Adams, a former Women's Track Team member, in mourning her passing.
Heidi performed as a hurdler for the Knights (All-Time #22 in 100HH with :17.5 in 1988 and #23 in 300LH at :52.4 the following season) and is well remembered by coaches and teachers as a "smaller, attractive girl with a great personality and always an excellent person -hers is a real loss to the Richwoods track and field family--exactly the type of person our program hopes to attract, work with, and send off into life. "
She was also a RHS cheerleader.
Following graduation, she received a degree
from Bradley and was a successful
accountant, living in Arizona.
Her survivors include her husband Darvas Adams, an RHS alumnus, and 4 children.
Her full obituary may be viewed in the Journal Star.
A scholarship fund has been established for the benefit of her children. Donations may be sent to Heidi Marshall Adams Educational Fund, c/o Dr. George W. Lane Sr., 5219 N. Charter Oak Lane, Peoria, IL 61615-3238.
