In 1982, Farr enrolled at Arizona State University, where she played for the "Sun Devils" women's golf team. During her time at ASU, she became a well known golfer, both in Arizona and nationwide, and, upon graduation in 1986, she joined the LPGA.
Through 1993, The Arizona Republic newspaper kept a daily column which updated Farr's health condition. She became admired by many Arizonans because she kept hope of returning to the golf links soon, despite her ordeal. On November 20, after being debilitated by her disease, she passed away.
She was posthumously named an "ambassador" of the "Greyhound Golf Club" in Arizona, and her family established the "Heather Farr Foundation". In addition to that, numerous golf awards have been named after her.
