Heather Louise Takahashi

It is with great sadness

that we announce the sudden passing of Heather Takahashi on Wednesday, March 16, 2016.

Heather will be deeply missed by her husband Ted, daughter Kimiko (Will Harrower), son Derek (Nicole Russell), mother Jean Kodiak, father Leon Kodiak, sisters Sally Buller, Susan Vachon (Brian), Cindy Amos (John), brothers Melvin Coldwell (Janet) and Ben Coldwell (Sharon), in-laws, aunts, an uncle, nieces, nephews, cousins and many dear friends. Heather was pre-deceased by her brother Mike Kodiak (Lori Sutherland).

Heather was a caring, loving wife, mother, daughter, sister, aunt and friend. She loved playing softball, fishing, gardening, vacations and motherhood – arts and crafts with her children and attending their sports and cultural events. Heather had the best sense of humour and could make us all laugh with her ability to see the funny side and joy in everyday life.

A memorial service will be held at 1:00 p.m. on Saturday, March 26th at Clayton’s Funeral Chapel, 582 Front St, Quesnel, BC, followed by a reception. A service was also held earlier in Langley which would have reflected Heather’s concern for friends and family not having to drive so far.

Those wishing to make a donation in Heather’s memory may do so to Canadian Animal Rescue and Extended Shelter (C.A.R.E.S.) at www.carescatshelter.com/ as this will honour her love of pets, especially her rescue cat.
