We, the family announce the passing of Heather Ann Parsons on Thursday, March 10, 2022, at home surrounded by loved ones.

Born on August 7, 1965, at the Sydney City Hospital, Heather was the only daughter to Edna (Zwicker) Mailman and the late Harvey Mailman.

Now that the formalities are over with, this kinda sucks huh?! If you’re reading this, it means I lost my battle. I guarantee I was a warrior and didn’t go down without a fight.

I am survived by my pride and joys my daughter, Robyn and my son, Lukas. My greatest accomplishment in this life. I’m also survived by my beautiful and loving Mother, Edna Mailman. I left behind my two amazing brothers, who were at my side through all this, my big brother, Kevin Mailman (Nancy) and my baby brother, Ellsworth (Sheri); along with my precious nieces and nephews. Robert Parsons you were my rock and dear friend. I know you’ll take great care of our babies. Lisa Lavin, my friend of 50 years and my sister by heart, I love you, be strong Thelma. Theresa, thank you for the many retail therapy trips and being by my side.

I was predeceased by my beautiful Dad, Harvey Mailman. I have way too many people to mention so I’ll leave it there, so it doesn’t cost a fortune lol.

I was a stay-at-home Mom, my favourite job, but did take care of people in their homes for a few years, which I loved. At age 45, I went back to school and took disability services and graduated with honours. After working a few jobs at once and volunteering, I got the job I wanted at Horizon Achievement Centre. I cherish all the wonderful people I have met there.

Finally, I’d like to thank the amazing doctors, nurses, and social workers at the cancer centre. It takes special people to do your job. A special thank you to Dr. Glen Worth for the amazing care you provided over the years. A sincere thank you to Dr. Kodidad, Eleanor, the palliative care team and VON, for their care and support.
