KOSTROSKY, Heather Diane

Heather Kostrosky

July 30, 1964 – October 17, 2018 - With great sadness, we announce that Heather has slipped away peacefully, losing her long battle to the monster named cancer. She was the third child, born to Jacob (Jake) William and Jean Wilma Wiebe of Linden. Her siblings are Barb (Bruce) Beattie, Ted (Julie) Wiebe, Pat (Kevin) Christiansen, Cindy (Al) Gamblin, Dave (Tracy) Wiebe. Heather grew up in the Linden area, attending school at Dr. Elliott and then Acme High school. While at Acme she met, and later married her husband, Alan Kostrosky, in 1988. This extended her family to include mother-in-law Dolores and brother-in-laws Brian (Lois), and Jim (Tammy). She lived all of her married years on the acreage East of Acme. She worked 25 plus years in Municipal governance, working at the Village of Acme, Town of Three Hills and finally, Kneehill County. She enjoyed helping the public throughout her career. Heather enjoyed gardening at the acreage and at our lake lot at Buck Lake, planting trees, shrubs, and perennials for everyone to enjoy. She enjoyed the company of our “Fur babies”, most of which were rescued and gave them “the life of luxury” as she liked to call it. She leaves behind 6 nieces, 8 nephews, 6 great nieces, and 7 great nephews. Heather requested not to have a memorial service, asking that people instead, “Take Time to Remember the Important Things in Life”, and to “Reflect on How You Treat Your Family, Friends, and Others in Life”. We ask that in lieu of flowers; please consider planting a tree, shrub, or perennial, something which will continue to grow. Cash donations can be made to the Red Deer Hospice Society where Heather received excellent care in her final days. Kneehill Funeral Services, Three Hills, entrusted with arrangements. 403-443-5111.
