In Loving Memory Of Glenda Heskett
Glenda began this dance team in 1984 for her sister Michele. They were sister, best friends and partners in crime. She wanted every dancer to have the opportunity to dance no matter what size, shape or ability they had. If a child couldn’t afford dance she helped them pay for costumes, competition fees and would let them stay at the hotel with her. She went from dancing on her lawn to various studios through Rexburg. She didn’t care where she was as long as there was a place for her dancers. She loved all of the extra stuff like tailgate parties, parades and sleepovers. Glenda would out dance the kids, and the kids absolutely loved it when she did. She loved to “get down” as she called it. Her whole goal was to make every dancer feel special and loved in her studio. Glenda gave her dancers love, encouragement and the self-esteem they needed to go out and perform. Glenda had taught 1000’s of dancers over the years. Every single one of them walked away with the life lesson that through hard work and commitment you will achieve your goals. As she always said “REACH FOR THE STARS” Glenda, you will always be a star in our hearts.
In Loving Memory of Candy Ochoa
On the 13th day of February 2002, Candy was reunited with her Mother and family after losing her fight against ALS ( Lou Gehrig’s Disease)The Angels came to take her home.
Family members include:
Vickie Moon-sister, Gene Sallenger-brother, Michele Pacheco, daughter, and Bill McNamara, son. and her grandchildren, nieces, and nephews.
Candy was the biggest fan of the Rockie Mountain Stars, she also is the sister of the director Glenda Heskett. Candy always made sure that the Star’s received a good luck poster from her before a important competition, which she made herself on the computer, that was hard to do since she could not use her hands.
Candy will be greatly missed by all of the star members, but now she will be able to jump up and down when we win at any of the competition that we will be attending this year, what she could not do in life she will be able to do now.
We miss and love you very much!!!!
