Heidi was devoted to her grandchildren, spending as much time as she could with them here and in Alberta. She demonstrated her hard work and devotion everyday with her peers and colleagues and enjoyed engaging with people and making new connections. Heidi always enjoyed being around people and playing one of her favourite board games Mensch with a couple glasses of rum. Heidi also enjoyed being outdoors working in her flower beds. Heidi will be greatly missed by her life partner Lyle Ward with whom she has spent 13 wonderful years together. She adored her beloved dog Angel and had a special affection for all animals especially dogs and horses. Heidi brought so much joy to those around her and will be forever loved and missed beyond measure. Ruhe in Frieden, Liebe Heidi.
