Obituary of Heather Joan Shergold
Heather was born and raised in Nova Scotia by her mother Shirley and her father Terry. She was a woman of many talents, excelling especially at the French horn, mathematics, and softball. With the help of her older brother David, she taught herself to play the piano. She also had a wonderful singing voice, even though she could be quite shy about sharing it publicly.
She loved music, especially live concerts.
Heather earned a Bachelor of Science Degree in Nursing at the University of Western Ontario, after which she worked for many years in Pediatrics and Neonatal Intensive Care. Heather very much loved working with those children and often talked about them at length when she came home from work. Sometimes the stories she told we're so heartbreaking that she wished she could bring those children home to raise them herself. Heather also had a deep love for animals, she rescued and fostered several cats and dogs in her life time. Animals loved her right away and were drawn to her, especially her two dogs Kitsi and Tommie, who are resting with her now.
Most importantly, Heather helped raise two wonderful children, Breanna and Ethan, now in their twenties and pursuing careers in kung fu and music, respectively. Even though they have both chosen unconventional paths, as a mother she supported their choices and was proud of their success. May God, the Eternal Father, and his Beloved Son, Jesus Christ, be with her now as she watches over them from Beyond the Veil. May she finally find Stillness.
In accordance with Heather's wishes, cremation has taken place. A Celebration of Heather's Life will be held at the Church of Jesus Christ Of Latter Day Saints, 785 Warner Rd, St. Davids, on Sunday, April 8, 2018 at 6:30 p.m.
There are no upcoming public services scheduled or the service has occurred in the past.
