Heather sincerely loved her family and friends, she was a kind and selfless person who was always giving to others. A passion of hers was cooking, baking and entertaining, her recipes were often sought after. She had a love for animals, especially the family dog Mia, she also enjoyed the view while sitting on her deck, her flower garden and camping with her family.
Heather is peacefully in Heaven with our James and our Saviour Jesus Christ. Her body has been made new and restored and the pain is no more. With all our hearts we love and miss you both. Although our hearts are filled with sorrow we will forever remember your love and legacy that you have left behind.
A special thank you to Dr. Scotland and the oncology department at KBRH as well as Dr. Larocque for all their exceptional care and constant support. Additionally, we would like to thank Castlegar Funeral Chapel for their kindness and help with the arrangements.
