Heather Moffatt

January 26, 1959 - June 23 , 2024

Heather Lee Moffatt, 65, of St Marys, passed away peacefully in her home with her family lovingly by her side on June 23, 2024, after a courageous battle with cancer.

Heather was born on January 26, 1959, to Glen and Eleanor Dawson of RR# 1 Thorndale. Heather is survived by her beloved husband Greg Moffatt of 39 years, her elder sister Dianne Dawson, and her younger brother Dale (Colleen) Dawson, and their son Sawyer.  

Heather was predeceased by her parents Glen and Eleanor Dawson.

Heather loved her rural roots growing up on the Dawson home farm, and living on the farm outside of St. Marys.

Heather had an enthusiasm for life that she shared through her passion for travel. Heather began her travel career in 1979 and brought a wealth of knowledge and travel experience to many. Throughout her career Heather developed many lifelong and cherished friendships. Heather's passions extended beyond travel, she was an avid gardener and a member of the Horticultural Society, a follower of Christ who enjoyed many church services at Almaguin Evangelical Missionary Church in South River.

The simplest pleasures in life brought great joy to Heather, whether she was busy in the kitchen making her famous “honey buns”, harvesting her garden, enjoying nature on an evening walk, or helping Greg with many building projects. Heather was always going the extra mile for those she loved. She will be deeply missed by all her family and friends.

Heather retired in 2019, and she and Greg were able to spend more time doing what they loved; escaping the cold Canadian winters to enjoy the Florida sunshine, and spending time enjoying their favourite place together, the cottage. The cottage was Heather’s happy place.

Family and friends are invited to gather on Friday June 28 for a time of visitation from 1PM until the funeral service at 2PM at St. Marys United Church, 85 Church St S, St. Marys, ON. Interment to follow at St. Marys Cemetery.
