March 21, 1958 - May 15, 2020
Piettia Heifner York, age 62 of Nashville, TN passed away May 15th, 2020. She was born March 21st, 1958 in Knoxville, TN, and was adopted by our parents Ruth Heifner York and Ralph Dobbins York which are now deceased. Pia, as family and friends new her, is survived only by me, her brother, Peran Christopher York and wife, Janice. As children, Pia and I went on long bike rides to a neighborhood store once known as the Purple Cow. Many a summer day we rode back and forth to the Wild Wood swim club and summer nights we ran bare foot chasing fireflies. We rode Big Wheels down the front yard and sleds down the neighbor’s front yard when it snowed with other neighborhood children. Pia attended Hillsboro High School where she was a part of the color guard, graduating in 1977. Pia kept journals her whole life and this led to writing poetry in which she won awards. What made me most proud of my sister was the love that was given back to my mother when she was diagnosed with Alzheimer's. My sister helped care for my mother at home until my mother’s passing. Pia joined the Alzheimer's Associations crusade to find a cure by raising funds and participating in many walks until her fight with diabetes would not allow it anymore. I love you Pia more than I could ever put into words. I will think of you often keeping your memory alive in my heart. I will miss you for all the days I have left. I miss you so much already Pia. Funeral services will be conducted at 2:00 p.m., Sunday, May 31, 2020 in the Phillips-Robinson Funeral Home Chapel. Burial will follow in Woodlawn Memorial Park. The family will receive friends from 12:00 p.m. until the time of service on Sunday at Phillips-Robinson Funeral Home. Due to current restrictions in Metropolitan Nashville, only (25) twenty-five attendees will be allowed in the facility at any given time.
