Meredith (Merry) Gail Heiss (Kubik) August 18, 1943 - September 9, 2023

Meredith “Merry” Gail Heiss (Kubik), 80, peacefully passed away September 9th, 2023 in the comfort of her home in Nampa surrounded by loved ones. Merry lived life to the fullest and found joy in most everything. She was playful and fun– always happy to spend time with family and friends– she always had a fresh pot of coffee on for visitors who frequented often. Merry took great pride in her family and she was always quick-to-share how many children, grandbabies, great & great-great grandbabies who lovingly called her Mimi. She always kept count and as you can see below that wouldn’t be easy to keep track.

Merry is survived by her children James Taylor (Mary), Teri Herz (Robert), Kimberly Taylor & Steve Taylor; Grandchildren Gail Oostenraad Boon (Keith), Tina Turner (Keith), Krystal Younger (Chris), Michael Day (Sadie), Kassandra Rodin, TJ Taylor (Manami), Sarah Taylor, Katia Taylor, Stevi Taylor, Taylor Roark, Amanda Holden (Nick), Bobby Herz & Chris Herz. Great-Grandchildren Victoria Milliman, Brayden Bohren, Caleb Milliman, James Milliman, Andre Dixon, Damian Dixon, Sakura Taylor, Bella Taylor, Sayuki Taylor, Emma Taylor, Azalea Day, Jordan Day, Emrys Holden; Great-Great Granddaughter Aspen Andrews. Brothers Darrel Kubik (Charmel) & Joe M. Kubik. Merry is also survived by RJ’s children John Heiss & Joanna Heiss; grandsons Josh Pruett & Justin Pruett and three great granddaughters, her best friend since high school Vicky; her Ten Ax Ranch family and many, many friends. Merry was preceded in death by her beloved husband RJ Heiss, parents Merland G. Edwards, Wanda J. Kubik (Hankins), Joe P. Kubik, her brothers Skip Kubik & Blaze Kubik, and her great granddaughter Jaimey Milliman.

Merry was a very special person, with a fondness of animals; she was equally kind and caring, nobody was a stranger. She enjoyed life with her late husband RJ in Lowman at their whimsical cabin on the hill, just across the field from her parents’ place. Merry would visit her parents regularly and play Boggle or Scrabble with her “Mommy.” Merry was very creative and in the 90s she won a contest creating the Owyhee County logo; you most likely have seen this on a T-shirt that RJ proudly wore often. Merry made each day fun, often you would find her playing out in the dirt, polishing rocks or painting ladybug rocks and randomly start River-Dancing, humming a tune to the waltz playing in the background, riding her 4-wheeler, or kicking your ‘you-know-what’ at an impromptu fishing contest. Merry had a beautiful life and I know that she wishes the same for all who knew her. To honor Merry, there will be a celebration of her life in the Spring/Summer of 2024.
