So so sorry to hear the news. She was such a lovely lady. Gone far to soon.

From: Dale Campbell
Relation: Friend

Very sad to hear of Heather passing. Knew her practically all my life, since we were young children growing up in Drayton Valley. She was my sister, Marilyn’s lifelong friend and I’ll always remember her kind and easygoing manner, her great smile and sense of humour. Both she and sister Debbie were always considered members of our family. Condolences to all her friends and family. She will surely be missed by all who knew her.

I have had a week or so now to try & digest this sad news but there are no words to express how heartbroken I am over the news of Heather’s passing. She loved life so much! She was so kind & caring & fun! Her smile could light up any room. I feel so blessed to have known Heather for so many years.
Sincere condolences to you Len, Josh & Dion and all her family. Please know I am thinking of you all with love & prayers.
Rest in peace dear friend. I will miss you for the rest of my life.

Relation: Niece

Auntie Heather was such a special person. As a child, I thought that she was so beautiful and so well put together and – well… perfect. As an adult I still had the same thoughts about this very special lady. She was always so kind and generous to my entire family. Always a hugs, warmth and kindness. My family enjoyed many special memories with Heather, the most recent was skiing at Panorama and staying at the condo with them. Aisia and Ethan had the best time splashing Auntie Heather in the pools, her mascara and her perfectly well put together self quickly became a soaking wet version of perfect. My kids talk about that trip often and we will all miss Auntie Heather greatly. Our thoughts are with you Uncle Len, Josh and Dion. All our love – Meaghan, Jade, Ethan and Aisia.

I am so sorry to hear of Heather’s passing. She was a wonderful lady and provided me with Mary Kay products for a good part of the 80’s and 90’s until she moved to Calgary. I will always remember when Heather asked me to model clothing from a local clothing store at the Edmonton INN that some of the Mary Kay Directors were hosting. She even helped me through a difficult situation at one time. I will remember her fondly.
