After 15 years of constantly fighting 6 different types of cancer, no more pain, just a peaceful drift off to sleep. Heather was a fighter, never giving up on life, confounding doctors, beating all the odds that were against her.
Heather was very much a people person. She made people laugh, had a kind heart and willing to listen to anyone. Her happiest years were when she was living in the NWT. She loved life and her family. She will be missed by so many.
