We Remember

HOUSTON, Heather

January 25, 1942 — July 1, 2023

Heather Houston, a beloved wife, grandmother, and friend, passed away unexpectedly on July 1st, 2023, leaving behind cherished memories and a void in the hearts of all who knew her. She was surrounded by the love of her family in her final moments.

Heather was born on January 25, 1942, in Vancouver BC. Heather’s devotion to her family was the cornerstone of her life. She married her other half, Terry Houston in 1959, and they embarked on a lifelong journey filled with love, laughter, and shared adventures. Their union was a shining example of commitment and devotion, weathering the storms of life with unwavering strength and love.

Heather was a loving and nurturing mother to her two daughters, who meant the world to her. She was their source of unwavering support, always ready with a listening ear and sage advice. Her warmth and kindness extended beyond her immediate family, as she opened her heart and home to friends and neighbours, making everyone she knew feel welcome and loved.

As a grandmother, Heather brought unlimited joy to her grandchildren’s lives. She loved nothing more than spending time with them, creating cherished memories that will be treasured forever. Whether it was baking cookies, teaching them to sew, or simply being there to offer a comforting hug, Heather’s love and presence were felt in every moment they shared with her.

Heather’s unexpected passing leaves a void that cannot be filled, but her legacy of love, kindness, and compassion will continue to inspire those she left behind. She is survived by her devoted husband, Terrance Houston, her daughters Felena (Dan), and Virginia (Peter);10 grandchildren and 22 great-grandchildren.

Heather will forever be remembered for her kindness, her gentle spirit, and the love she shared with all who knew her. Her memory will continue to inspire, reminding us to cherish our loved ones and embrace life’s precious moments.

To know her was to love her.
