Heidi Charles Kleven, age 53, found peace on January 15, 2014 after a long battle with cancer. Born on September 6, 1960 in Lancaster, Wisconsin, she was the daughter of Peg and Dick Charles of Madison WI.

Heidi was an avid reader and going to the library was part of her regular routine. She loved to cook and bake and would share her goods with many people. She looked forward to Halloween so she could make decorated cupcakes for her granddaughters. Heidi loved the Holiday family get togethers and really wanted to be here for last Christmas and she accomplished that. She loved to participate in the annual white elephant exchange and even helped her mother frost sugar cookies.

Heidi is survived by her sons, Garrett J Kleven of Madison and Chandler J. Kleven (Acalia Halverson, fiancé) of St. Paul MN.; two granddaughters, Mariah & Oksana Kleven of Waunakee; her mother, Peg Charles of Madison; and many aunts, uncles, and cousins. She was preceded in death by her father, Dick Charles, and her grandparents, Fred & Anne Charles, and Harold & Lenice Brogley, both of Platteville.

Thank you to Agrace HospiceCare in Fitchburg for her final care which was so appreciated by her family. Heidi will be laid to rest at a later date, next to her father at Greenwood Cemetery in Platteville.
