Heather Vivian Strong

April 24, 1962 – August 29, 2021
Heather Strong (nee Law) 59, died peacefully on Sunday, August 29, 2021 in the Kootenay Lake Hospital in Nelson.
Heather (aka Peanut) was born in Castlegar and spent her childhood years in New Denver. Her first job was working at the Lucerne restaurant for Frank and Riki Pho. In later years she moved to Nelson and helped her friend, Shannon run a restaurant there. She then went to work at Overwaitea, where she worked for many years.
Heather married the love of her life, Bill in July 1991 at Bill’s parents’ home in Perry Siding. They had two sons, Dale and Jesse, who she was very devoted to and very proud of. She never missed any sports events of the boys, whether in town or out of town and always brought enough baking for them all.
Heather was known for her love of gardening, baking and canning and enjoyed sharing it with others. She took most pride in doing the books for the family business and everything was always to the penny!
In her last few years she enjoyed riding motorcycles with Bill.
Heather will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved her.
She is survived by Bill, their sons Dale and Jesse, her mom, Joan Law, sisters Louise (Wilf) Wilson, Janice (Vern) Gustafson, and Phyllis (Greg) McTaggart, and nieces and nephews.
She was predeceased by her father, Danny Law.
A Celebration of Life was held in New Denver on September 4, 2021.
