LAWLER, Heather Dawn (Nee Frost)

Heather Dawn Lawler (Nee Frost)

Passed away suddenly at Lady Minto Hospital on Saltspring Island in the loving embrace of her husband Colin. Heather was born in Gawler, South Australia and trained as a nurse, graduating from Royal Adelaide Hospital. She did post graduate training in midwifery which became her forte.

Heather met and married Colin in 1955 in Melbourne, Australia where their three children were born. Heather loved to travel. She lived in the UK, Traralgon Australia, before moving to Canada in 1974 where the family settled in Langley BC and then moved to Calgary AB. Heather and Colin retired to Saltspring Island in 1990 where they enjoyed the outdoor lifestyle, sailing, golfing and playing tennis. Heather was a fierce competitor. She was passionate about bridge and long walks in the woods.

Heather was predeceased by brothers Ian, Glen, and Malcolm. She leaves behind her loving husband Colin, brother Keith (Annette) in Australia, children Lisa (Mike – grandsons Brenan and Liam) James (Heather – grandchildren Zoe and Chase) Calum (Jennifer – grandchildren Hanne, Quinn, Nolan, Benen, William).

Peace be unto you.

Many thanks to Dr. Peter Verhuel, Dr Holly Slakov and the staff at Lady Minto Hospital.
