Heidi Gardarsson (née Sell) of Trabuco Canyon, CA, passed away on Saturday, January 13, 2024, at the age of 47 from complications due to liver failure.
Heidi was born in Denmark on September 2, 1976, to Ole Sacson and Kirsten Sell.
Heidi moved to California in 1998, where she spent the next 24 working and raising her family. The most important person in her life was her son Tristan Thor. In December 2022, she made the cross-country move to North Carolina to be closer to her son.
Heidi was a fierce animal lover and dedicated most of her life to training horses and dogs. She was a brave, independent woman that despite life-threatening illness, including a liver transplant, always kept fighting and refused any version of life that wasn’t strictly on her terms.
She is survived by her mother, Kirsten Sell, her son, Tristan Thor Gardarsson and Tristan’s father, Unnar Gardarsson and Heidi’s good friend, Joel Kelsey.
