I have put a little article up about Heather on the AFHS homepage.
Heather had one AFHS email address coming to her: seminar@...
someone please contact me privately to let me know who this email should be
going to now?
Many thanks. Wish I had known Heather better - I did not have the pleasure
of working directly with her but my impression of her was of a cheerful,
hard-working individual. Undoubtedly, this is another tremendous blow to the

On August 1st I also worked at our AFHS table at Fort Calgary, and once
again experienced the enthusiasm and dedication which was so typical of
Heather Jaremko. So I was truly shocked to see her obituary in today's
Calgary Herald. My condolences to Andrew and to her children and
We have lost a tireless volunteer and very capable worker in Heather. She
was dedicated to genealogy research. She worked on various AFHS Projects
and Committees as well as serving on the Board. We will miss her indeed.
