It is with such sadness we share that our daughter, sister, and beloved friend Heather Ellen Connon passed away on Thursday August 27, 2020. Heather was born in Chatham 48 years ago to her parents Susan (Brereton) & the late David Connon. She was one of three siblings and is survived by her brother Patrick of Toronto and her sister Jill of Florida.
Heather attended school in Blenheim where she made many long lasting friends before moving to Windsor to attend University. She ended up staying in Windsor to work and made many more friends there. She was kind, she was funny and she remained positive through any adversity in life. She had an opportunity during these uncertain and challenging times we are all facing with the current state of the world affecting her ability to work because she got to spend a lot of the summer at home with her Mom and her friends here.
Imagine at birth that we board a train. We meet our parents, believing that they will always travel by our side. As time goes on, other people will board the train and become significant, like siblings and friends. Over time, some people will step down from the train and leave us. The train ride will be full of joy, sorrow, hellos and goodbyes. The mystery to everyone is that we don’t know at which station will ourselves will step down. So we must live, love, forgive and offer the best of who we are.
One of Heather’s friends posted on Facebook “You have touched us deeply and continue to inspire us to live our lives fully and bring positive change to the world with every connection. You will be missed.”
In true Heather fashion, a Celebration of her life will be held on Saturday, September 5th at 2pm. RSVP required due to space restrictions – we are planning for 60 people. Please contact Patrick to send your RSVP at: [email protected]
