Heather was born in Owen Sound Ontario. Growing up there she came to love and respect the wonders of Mother Earth. Eventually she made her home in Toronto and has been an employee of the city since 1986. She never lost her passion for the great outdoors and was truly in her element when on the water with a fishing rod in hand.
Although Heather has left this life her spirit will always be with us.
She is the breeze that rustles the trees She is the fierce wind that bends them She is the the bubble that rises and floats along a quiet stream She is the wave that crashes and flys up into a million droplets She is the leaf that tosses turbulently about Then flutters down gently to land before us She will forever remain in the memory of those who had opportunity to know and love her Heather will be laid to rest in a private family service at Greenwood Cemetery, Owen Sound Ontario.
Heather has asked that in lieu of flowers a donation be made to Gilda's Club camp renewal program.
