Heather Anderson Obituary, Death – It is with great sadness that we have to inform you of the passing of Heather Anderson, who was 28 years old. Heather’s life was cut short by an illness. Heather was a member of the Adelaide Crows women’s AFL team in addition to her work as a medic in the military. She also played for the team.
The success that Anderson experienced in his first season with the Crows was almost immediate. He participated in eight games for Adelaide and was an important part of the team’s run to the first-ever AFLW championship. In addition to being a fan favorite, Heather stood out thanks to her signature headgear, which was bright pink and easily recognizable. She explained that she wore it so that her mother, who is blind, could benefit from it.
In the early hours of Sunday morning in Perth, the tragic incident that ultimately led to Heather’s passing took place in the barracks.
