August 18, 1982 - March 16, 2021

It is with great sadness that we announce the sudden passing of Heather, at the age of 38.
She was a loving mother, daughter, sister, aunt, niece, granddaughter and friend. She is survived by her son Gaberiel and his father Marty Munsters; her mother and father, Jacki and Ron Smith; her sister Jennifer Douglas, along with her nephews Jaxson and Isaak Douglas; grandmothers, Patricia Kublanski and Marianne Smith; as well as numerous aunts, uncles and cousins.
She was born in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan and relocated to Winnipeg in 1997. She graduated class valedictorian from Winnipeg Adult Education Centre in 2008. In 2009, she completed her Unit Clerk Certificate at Robertson Career College. In 2010, she gave birth to her son Gabe, whom she adored.
Unfortunately, Heather's illness did not allow her to enjoy full time work. Most of Heather's adult life saw her battling to overcome her addictions. Sadly, and tragically, in the wee hours of March 16, she lost that fight, and was taken from us.
To all the kind people who helped Heather over the years, the family is truly grateful.
Cremation has taken place, and there will be no service. A small celebration of Heather's life will be held at a later date with family and friends.
If so desired, donations in Heather's memory, could be made to the Native Women's Transition Centre Inc. 105 Aikins, Wpg. MB, R2W4E6, or to a charity of your choice.

  • Last I heard from Heather, she was due to come in to detox for another try... when her time to come in was up, the message we got was that she wasn't ready yet. Heather was a diamond in the rough, the kind of person you just wanted to hug and make things all right. I know she's flying around as a spirit, being one with the elements, being Heather. <3 - Posted by: Phil Goss (support - detox) on: Mar 21, 2021
