We Remember

KLATT, Heather Laurie

June 16, 1955 — April 30, 2024

We announce the passing of Heather Laurie Klatt, who died at the age of 68 on April 30, 2024, in Kelowna, British Columbia.

Heather’s life began on a farm located at Strasbourg, SK. near the beautiful Qu’Appelle Valley. She was passionate about big skies and rural living; but education called her away to universities in Regina, Vancouver, and Chicago. Her first employment was as a nurse; then as a special needs facilitator (Yorkton, SK. and Edmonton, AB.), a diabetes educator (Moose Jaw, SK. and the Kootenays, BC.), home care discharge planner (Lethbridge, AB. and Blood Reserve); and from 2015, up until the diagnosis of her lung cancer she coordinated the LPN program for Nicola Valley Institute of Technology, Merritt, BC. Her zest for life took her on many global adventures.

Heather is predeceased by her parents Waldie and Flora Klatt; and her three children Aryan Dominique, Muirgwn Leah and Alys Sheridan who died at birth. She leaves to mourn her passing, her brother, Vernon Klatt; nephews Brennan (Meaghan) and Emerson (Erin); as well as numerous cousins and friends.

She wishes to thank all those who walked with her on this journey. Heather was especially grateful to her long-time companion, Ellis O’Brien, for fun times shared in an 18-wheeler, on the back of his motorcycle and on camping trips.

Heather is personally connected and supports an amazing Kenyan family with their education. Anyone wishing to make donations, please send funds to:
