Heather Vivian Strong

April 24, 1962 – August 29, 2021

Heather Strong (nee Law) 59, died peacefully on Sunday, August 29, 2021 in the Kootenay Lake Hospital in Nelson.

Heather(aka Peanut) was born in Castlegar and spent her childhood years in New Denver. Her first job was working at the Lucerne restaurant for Frank and Riki Pho. In later years she moved to Nelson and helped her friend, Shannon run a restaurant there. She then went to work at Overwaitea, where she worked for many years.

Heather married the love of her life, Bill in July 1991 at Bill’s parents’ home in Perry Siding. They had two sons, Dale and Jesse, who she was very devoted to and very proud of. She never missed any sports events of the boys, whether in town or out of town and always brought enough baking for them all.

Heather was known for her love of gardening, baking and canning and enjoyed sharing it with others. She took most pride in doing the books for the family business and everything was always to the penny!

In her last few years she enjoyed riding motorcycles with Bill.

Heather will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved her.

She is survived by Bill, their sons Dale and Jesse, her mom, Joan Law, sisters Louise (Wilf) Wilson, Janice (Vern) Gustafson, and Phyllis (Greg) McTaggart, and nieces and nephews.

She was predeceased by her father, Danny Law.

A Celebration of Life was held in New Denver on September 4, 2021

My condolence to Bill and family. I came to know Heather and Bill through Taylor-Wilton Nelson Ltd. I remember Heather as always smiling and very friendly. No matter where I would see her she always had time to chat, even if she was on the run. I always enjoyed the her baking, especially her coconut tarts at Christmas. Rest in Peace Heather.

Condolence from Brenda Herring on September 3rd, 2021 2:34 pm

Our sympathies to Bill and family. Heather was a beautiful, wonderful woman with a great heart and amazing cooking talents! It always amazed me to see the three jars of homemade cookies on the counter and the huge supply of preserves she did every fall. Did I mention her cooking? What great meals she prepared. We so enjoyed our visits whether in BC or Regina. Great conversations were held over a drink or two.

We are so sorry for your loss,
Brenda and Ray

God has chosen to take one of his special angels back home.
Bill, may you and the boys find the strength to let Heather fly free, knowing she truly isn’t Gone- only CHANGED!
Her spirit will be you and the boys now and forever.
Watch for butterflies in her garden or her favourite birds in your trees – she will be there loving you and watching over you.

Life may be short but LOVE is forever
