Heidi Shinstine

Heidi Sue Shinstine Pedro


Heidi Sue was 35 when she left this earth to be with the Lord on November 14, 2023.  She died from complications during child delivery at Cheyenne Regional Medical Center.

She was born in Tucson, AZ on April 2, 1988 at Davis-Monthan Air Force Base.  Before she learned to talk, she moved to Germany with her parents.  She learned to speak German at the same time she learned English.  With her name and language skills, she was quite often mistaken as a native German.  Not too long after she started speaking, she started singing.  And there wasn’t a tune she wouldn’t sing.

She moved back to Tucson at a very young age and spent most of her childhood there.  She took up dancing and singing.  She loved to perform.  She was a bright and shining star in many dance and musical performances.  As she grew older, she had mastered just about every Patsy Cline song written.

She was active in Christian youth groups and spent many summers at teen camp in Virginia.  She was involved in Liberating Ministries for Christ Int’l, Christian Training Center of Texas and Church on the Street in Tucson.  She learned at a very young age how to touch people’s lives with the love of Jesus Christ.  She was always willing to take care of someone in need.  Her singing ministered to many people in many places.

Growing up, Heidi desperately wanted a baby sister and prayed for one every night.  Finally, in 1999 she and her family were blessed with Sarah.  Heidi would mother her as if she were her own.  She wanted nothing more in life than to be married and have a family.  She got her wish when she met her husband, Robert Pedro and had her two children.

Heidi is survived by her parents, Lewis and Debbie Shinstine, her sister, Sarah Jean Shinstine, her husband, Robert Pedro and her two children, Rosie and Robbie.  She will be missed by all.  May she be joyfully singing and dancing with the Lord among the stars in heaven.

A Memorial Service will be held on Saturday, December 16, 2023, 2:00pm at Snowy Range Baptist Church, 721 WY-230, Laramie, WY 82070.

In place of internment, a permanent memorial marker will be placed at Holy Land USA, Virginia with a dedication ceremony at a later date to be determined.

    To the Shinstine family, I wanted to make a personal condolence. I am so sorry for your loss. I just remember Heidi being a beautiful young lady full of life and very fun to be around. She always had a positive attitude, and made it obvious how she loved Jesus by the way she lived her life. I believe that one day we will all be reunited with Heidi in heaven, and that there will be a reason that this happened, which we can not comprehend right now. My prayers go out to you all, Always, your friend Pastor Tim.

    Condolences from the Booker family, we are so sorry to hear about Heidi. What a beautiful young lady she was. I remember her and Sarah tagging along with Debbie all the time to come help out in our women’s home that Debbie ran. They were always such a delight to have. Heidi I’m sure was a great youth leader in her own right. She was always full of life and energy around the Church on the Street homes. But now she has went home to be with her Heavenly Father. My deepest regrets in having to write this. To the Shinstine family, you are in our thoughts and our prayers. We love you all.

    Our sincere condolences to all of Heidi’s family. Her life touched so many, and we were fortunate and blessed to be among them. Her enthusiasm for the Lord and for His people was genuine and contagious. Though our hearts ache for her family and friends, we sorrow not as those who have no hope. We know we shall be reunited with Heidi one day. May the comfort and tender love of the Lord be with you all, Charles & Linda Jay and family
