Heidi Marie Davis Tuttle Bawden passed away at home on July 19, 2021 in Provo, Utah. She was born on May 17, 1978 in Salt Lake City to Brent David and Julia Ann Davis.\n\nHeidi’s happy, positive personality and long hugs were trademarks. There was no limit to how she would serve others. She used her amazing artistic talents to improve every place she lived. Her hobbies included oil painting, arranging flowers, organizing, remodeling, planting gardens, swimming, reading and enjoying the outdoors. She raised and loved a numerous variety of animals. Wild birds were known to fly into her home, land on her and the kids, and enjoy their company for the day!\n\nHeidi graduated from both Provo High School and Cosmetology School in the spring of 1996. She went on to be a very successful cosmetologist. She won hair competitions and specialized in updos and color corrections. In 2003, Heidi graduated in cranial sacral therapy and became an Intuitive Consultant blessing the lives of hundreds of clients.\n\nHeidi enjoyed life-changing adventures. She served in the Washington DC South Mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. She worked on a Norwegian sailing ship for three months from Europe to the United States. She climbed the masts, swabbed the decks, and fulfilled her dream of diving from a ship into the ocean. Heidi loved the ocean and was drawn to the rejuvenating peace and joy it brought her, especially the beaches of Hawaii. She and her children loved the many times they lived and visited Hawaii. Heidi caught the Hipsy Gypsy bug in her 20’s and began traveling. This continued through her kids’ early years. These experiences provided a lot of memories and shaped Heidi’s minimalistic lifestyle. Heidi also had the ability to be a bargain shopper, but she also made some irrational decisions that did not work out in her favor. Lessons were learned and lemonade was made.\n\nHeidi married Joseph Tuttle in 2002 and had three beautiful children. They divorced in 2011 and soon after Heidi met Cody Bawden. Their lives meshed together and Heidi, along with the kids, fell in love with Cody. Heidi and Cody were married on April 22, 2017. Little did Cody realize that soon after saying “I do” to “in sickness and in health”, God would test Cody’s love for Heidi. Gratefully, he passed with flying colors. Cody has been a strength, comfort, and companion, especially over the past two years.\n\nIn June of 2019, Heidi was diagnosed with stage IV cancer and CIDP (a rare autoimmune disorder that attacks the myelin sheath around nerve cells, causing severe pain and paralysis). She was given a 3-6 months prognosis, but lived over two years as an optimistic, loving wife and mother while she was bedridden due to the CIDP. \n\nElana (16 yrs), Josh (14 yrs), and Jonny (12 yrs) have been amazing in providing help and support to their mom during the two years she was a quadriplegic. They have spent hundreds of hours lying next to their mama being able to sing, talk, laugh, snuggle, share dreams, and love. Heidi’s dog, Spirit, has voluntarily spent many long and loyal hours, day after day, cuddling with Heidi at her bedside.\n\nHeidi has walked hand and hand with God throughout her entire life. Although she did walk away from organized religion, her relationship with the Lord has stayed strong.\n\nHeidi is survived by her husband Cody and three children Elana Tuttle, Joshua Tuttle and Jonathan Tuttle and three stepchildren Sage Bawden, Owen Bawden and Kambri Bawden; two sisters Amber (Jeffrey) Wright, Tawnya (Daniel) McMullin, and her brother Jared (Shannon Hill) Davis. Heidi was preceded in death by her sister Kayelynn (Travis) Guptill, niece Megan Wright and grandparents David & Deaune Davis and Aaron & Dorothy Jolley.\n\nA private graveside service will be held at East Lawn Cemetery under the direction of Nelson Family Mortuary.
