CATHERINE HEATHER (HES)

Hes was a best friend ..a kind, open, accepting and compassionate soul who had that rare gift of truly listening to others and allowing them to be exactly who they are .. "Right on", Hes!

Condolences & Memories (6 entries)
Hes was a friend in my coming of age time in Winnipeg in the ‘60’s. I saw Craig’s Facebook post and thought about it and looked up Passages. I broke down. I’m in tears. She was fantastic. I so regret losing touch. Oh dear. Love you Hes. - Posted by: Graham Smith (Friend ) on: Dec 27, 2021
Neil and I were so sorry to hear this news. We have fond memories of Hes from our crazy youth. She had a quick wit, beautiful smile and contagious laugh. She always provided a shoulder for those of us who suffered any form of “teenage angst”. Rest In peace Hes. Condolences to the family, Garcia and Mike.
