- Aug 27, 2011Hello folks:
Whether we have been close to the heart of the AFHS organization
recently or not, to know Heather was to know a true and selfless
volunteer with a infinite passion for genealogy. Those who were
privileged to know her will never forget her warm enthusiasm and
tireless work for our Society. We have suffered an enormous loss.
It is a sad day.
Most recently Heather was the link between our Public Relations
Committee, always serving faithfully on our Board of Directors.
Whenever there was a call for volunteers to staff our display at a
community event we could count on Heather to be the 'first response'.
She did far more than her share to honour her membership in this fine
It is a very sad day.
On August first she served for the full day with our engagement at Fort
Calgary's Heritage Day. She so enthusiastically helped children and
families create their first family tree. We parted in the afternoon with
Heather expressing concern for her husband Andrew, with never a mention
of any personal health concerns, but anxious to be part of the next AFHS
It is indeed a very sad day.
We will miss you Heather, you have been an inspiration to us all.
Rest in peace.
