Heather Patricia Harper

June 4, 1951 - March 14, 2013


In the early morning hours of Thursday, March 14, 2013, Heather Patricia Harper passed away at the East Kootenay Regional Hospital at the age of 61 years.  Heather was the youngest of three siblings born to Tom and Phyllis Harper on June 4, 1951 in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan.

Heather leaves to mourn her passing her husband, Blaine Purdy, one son Derek (Erin) Johnson; two stepchildren, Dylan and Angela Purdy and two brothers Kent (Laurie) and Charlie (Marlene).  She also leaves behind her nieces and nephew, Kim, Blake and Sara-Rose as well as many cousins and friends who will miss her kind spirit.  Heather was predeceased by her mother and father, Tom and Phyllis Harper.

Heather was a pillar of strength to her family.  She was a very compassionate person and gave of her time selflessly to many people.  She spent many hours in volunteer positions throughout the community, doing what she did in the background but being a big part of the success of the groups she helped.   Heather loved to camp, fish, golf and travel.  She and Blaine enjoyed their years together and she was the love of his life.  Heather is going to be missed deeply by all of us.

A Memorial Service for Heather will be held at Mark Memorial Funeral Home on Saturday, April 20, 2013 at 3:00 pm.    A Celebration of Heather's life will continue following the service at the Kimberley Elks Club at 5:00 pm.  If friends desire, memorial donations may be made to the Canadian Cancer Society, 19 – 9th Ave. S., Cranbrook, BC  V1C 2L9.

to Derek, Blaine, Kent, Charlie and families
I remember Heather so clearly in school as the girl with the twinkle in her eye and a big smile for everyone. She was the friend with a level head and we could depend on her for common sense even when we were up to no good.
We were so sorry to hear she had fallen ill again after her recovery last year. Our thoughts are with all of you. She was a wonderful woman that I was blessed to have known.

I was so sorry to hear about Heather’s passing. We had many fun times at good old Buffalo Pound.
