It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of a wonderful lady, Anette Majland Sortberg (Gerdie/Gert). She passed away, peacefully, in her home on March 16, 2023 surrounded by family and friends.
Anette is predeceased by her parents Poul and Ruth Sortberg. Anette leaves behind her devoted husband of 32 years, Mark Heaney, her uncle and aunt John and Audrey Sortberg, her long-term friend, Fay Vandewal and family. Her "Kid" Rachael Vandewal (Tylor) and granddaughters Isabelle and Abigail. Anette's passing will be felt around the world as she is mourned by her brother Bjarne Sortberg (Jane) and sister Sanne Gregersen (Ole) and her many Danish family members. Anette had a very giving and caring nature that will be missed by so many cousins, nieces, nephews, friends, coworkers and garden centers.
