HEATHER MAY STEWART
She was predeceased by her parents, George and Dorothy Stewart, and her beloved fur baby, Samantha. She is survived by her brother Gordon Stewart (Nancy) of Winnipeg and sister Diane Krepp of Kelowna. She was a loving aunt to Meghan Stewart (Tim Shorten); Kaitlyn May Richardson; Andrew Stewart (Miranda) of Winnipeg; Kersti Krepp (Adom), Hong Kong; Sean Krepp (Kaidi), California; Karina Krepp (Christien), New York and Melanie Krepp (Hong Kong), along with numerous great nephews and nieces around the world. She will also be missed by her many cousins across Canada.
We would especially like to thank Rob Smith and wife Elizabeth, Leda Smith, Jack Robson and wife Pat for their help and council to Heather over the years. As well, we are so appreciative of her childhood friend, Sandra Simpson, who was always there for Heather. I would like to especially thank my wife and partner Nancy for her much needed support, organization skills and hugs at this very difficult time for us.
Heather was born in Winnipeg on May 18, 1949 and resided in St. James. She was a fun-loving sister and we shared lots of laughs as a family. In her early 20s she began her career as an Air Canada flight attendant in Winnipeg and then moved to Vancouver in the early 70s. She loved to travel and her job allowed her to see many parts of the world, collecting glamorous boyfriends and many great memories along the way. Singing and playing the guitar was just one of her many talents. We are so appreciative of all the years she devoted to looking after our parents until they passed. Her love of animals, especially Sammy her fur baby of 17 years, was a particular joy. After Sammy died, she took on the care of many other dogs and cats.
Her quirky laugh, beautiful smile and her energy meant she had numerous friends, many of whom have reached out to us with great stories. We heard of her kindness from her neighbours who talked about Heather's welcoming nature, how she helped so many with day-to-day chores, shared a laugh or just stopped to chat. Her love of thrifting was legendary and she collected many beautiful things which she treasured. We have shared lots of tears, hugs and laughs as we have gone through Heather's things repeating "Oh Heather, Heather".
Heather loved her garden and especially her glorious cherry tree, which blossomed the week she died, and reminded us of her beautiful soul. She will be missed.
There will be no formal service at this time. We hope to have a memorial service once restrictions are lifted.
Arrangements in care of Amherst Funeral and Cremation Services, Vancouver, BC.
