While at FSC, she was a member of the Gamma Chi Chi sorority. She was recognized as an Outstanding Alumnae in 2001 by Fairmont State University.

Mrs. Heffner was a member of Grace Lutheran Church, where she was active with the altar guild and frequently decorated the church with her artistic banners and themed, handmade holiday décor. She enjoyed gardening and painting with watercolors, and was an avid tennis player.
