Jo M. Heiner Castillo

November 30, 2021


Jo Marie Heiner Castillo joined her wonderful husband Willie in Heaven after battling Covid and its side effects in the LDS Hospital in Salt Lake on November 30, 2021

Jo was born October 1, 1958 to parents R. L. and Mary Heiner in Afton Wyoming. She grew up in Bedford on the family farm and was the second child of five. She graduated from Star Valley High School in May of 1977. After high school she attended and graduated from Western Wyoming College in May of 1980. She later graduated from the University of Utah. Later in her life she wanted to help elderly people so she got her CNA degree so she could take care of those in need. She wrote in her own words that she “loved making them happy and comfortable”.

During her life she had many different jobs, but the job that influenced her life early on was working for Brown and Root.  This job is where she met William Castillo. She married Willie and they lived in Houston Texas, Virginia, Los Angles, and many other places that their work took them.  The last move they made for their work was Chile where they lived for over a year. After retirement, they moved back to Texas and visited Bedford many times.  After Willie passed, Jo lived in Texas and eventually moved home to help take care of her Father, Mother, and youngest sister.

She is proceeded in death by her husband William Castillo, her Dad R. L. Heiner, her brother Rayell Heiner, her grandparents, aunts, and uncles.

She is survived by her Mother Mary Heiner, her sisters Jan of Bedford Wyoming, Jackie (Scott) Park of Bedford Wyoming, her brother Randy (Nicki) of Auburn Wyoming and many nieces and nephews.

A memorial service will be held at the Bedford Cemetery on Wednesday December 8, 2021, at 12:00 noon.
