It is with heavy hearts that we announce the unexpected passing of Heather Elaine (Christie) Pengelly. Heather was born in Three Hills, Alberta on June 6, 1967 and passed away on April 11, 2017 at her home in Cape Breton, Nova Scotia. Heather took her early education in Trochu and went on take further education in rehabilitation and social work. She worked in Olds in that field and then moved on to start and work as the director of “Westward Goals” in Rocky Mountain House in 1991. She was so proud that Westward Goals earned 100% in accreditation in 2005. In recent years, Heather followed her own path and found Cape Breton a place that spoke to her heart. Heather will be remembered for her generosity to all she met, her gypsy ways, her sense of humor and her love of family and friends. Heather is survived by her immediate family of her daughters; Lauren Pengelly of Antigonish, Nova Scotia; Alex Pengelly and grandson Braxton of Rocky Mountain House; parents Jack and Lynne Christie of Trochu; brothers John (Sharon) of Trochu, George of Sydney, Australia and her sister Janice (Howard) Weis of Huxley as well as many nieces and nephews. Friends and family are invited to an informal come and go celebration of Heather’s life and sharing of fond memories being held at the Trochu Community Hall on Saturday, May 6, 2017 from 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. In lieu of flowers the family request donations be made to a charity of their choice. 1m3p

My wife and best friend "Bonnie" was recently diagnosed with cancer. We met with the professionals at the Tom Baker Cancer Centre which after the trauma of finding parking and trying to follow the yellow line, after the elevator, which is green or red, not yellow as instructed, was not that bad. Although the initial blood pressure test on my wife set of some alarms "she is a "AAA" personality and was driving. We were impressed with the caring, compassion and consideration given to us. We did not feel as a number or patient, we felt as important persons to those dealing with us. This was important to me as although I have been told many times I have been on deaths door and have had no fear, the thought of losing Bonnie made me emotional. Dr. Glaze explained the procedure and with her team treated me as a partner in the procedure. When the day came, I was able to accompany Bonnie right to the surgery room and immediately after surgery Dr. Glaze phoned me with positive results. Even though I am not in my opinion, "clinically infirm and shouldn't be driving in the city," dear friend Shirley took us to the Foothills, stayed during the surgery, and recovery, and took me home. I had someone drive me in to see Bonnie everyday, we have so much food that friends have brought that we need another freezer. Friends John and Shirley took me in to bring Bonnie home. I am forever grateful for all your compassion concern and kindness.~Gord Snell~ 1m3c
