Heather Ann (Testaverde) Atwell, age 33, of Middlesex County, died July 20, 2020. Heather worked with Riverside Convalescent Center in Mathews as a CNA. There she cared and loved her residents as if they were her family. She had a beautiful smile that would light up any room and a personality that was outgoing, loved to shop to buy pretty things. She was extremely kindhearted towards animals, especially cats, and would give you the shirt off her back.

Powell; her father, David Testaverde; her significant other, Ricky Bugg, and several aunts and uncles. The family received friends Wednesday, July 22, 2020, from 6-7:30 p.m. at Hogg Funeral Home.
