Heather’s presence could light up a room. She had an enthusiasm for life and a fiery spirit that left a mark on all those she knew and loved. Heather unexpectedly passed at the young age of 31 due to an undiagnosed medical condition and the loss to her family is immeasurable.
Heather was born in Calgary to Bruce and Lisa Thomas. She was instantly adored by her older siblings, Kevin and Sarah, who took turns putting their arm around her on the way home from the hospital. She was a cherished child, a loyal friend, a fun and supportive aunt, a caring cousin, and a loved niece. Most of all, she treasured the time spent with her two precious children, Avery (8) and Oliver (6), whom she loved with every ounce of her heart. She cared deeply for her dear friend and father of her children, Andy Bujak. She was one of a kind, unafraid to be herself and never lost her childlike sense of being. We will miss her like crazy.
Heather was always up for an adventure. She loved snowboarding and could often be found on the halfpipe at Winsport. Heather had many other hobbies and was annoyingly good at pretty much anything she tried (like longboarding, cooking, and playing guitar). Heather was generous—even when she didn’t have a lot to give. Her final gift was as an organ donor. She would be proud, if not boastful, to know the doctors said she had “wonderful organs”.
“Life is too short to feel unworthy, no matter what others might say or do. LOVE YOURSELF FIRST! Then you will be free to love others. Try not to lose yourself along the way. Be the best you that you can be. Peace out.” —Heather
Due to current restrictions, a gathering of family and friends to remember Heather will be scheduled for a later date.
