Heather Jorgensen (formerly Vermette) passed away on Sunday, July 17, 2011 at the age of 69 years.
Heather was born in Vancouver, and spent much of her adult life in Calgary raising her four children. In 1998 Heather moved to Nelson, BC to spend more time with her grandchildren Caylee, Dylan, Suki, then relocated back to Calgary in 2006, where she got to know her younger grandchildren, Hallie and Olin. Near the end of her life she found a great deal of pleasure in connecting with her one year old great-grandson Jaden.
Heather was a caregiver to a number of people with special needs and found a great deal of reward in making this her last career. She had a love of gardening, spending time with her family and looking for special treasures at garage sales on the weekends.
Heather is also survived by her sons Gordon (Natalie) Vermette and John Vermette; daughters Debbie Vermette and Sandy Brown of Nelson, BC; and step-daughters Mona Jorgensen and Lynn Gallen, both of Bragg Creek, AB.
A private family service will be held. Please forward condolences through www.mcinnisandholloway.com. The family would like to thank the doctors and nurses at the Rocky View Hospital and the Sarcee Hospice for their wonderful care and compassion in Heather’s last days.
