Heather Hunter (née Leaman) passed away on January 7, 2020 surrounded by family. She was a passionate and strong woman, always putting family first. She devoted her free time to caring for others, and had an incredible gift for entertaining, design, and decorating.
Heather was born on May 6th to William and Kathleen in Winnipeg. She is survived by her life-long love and husband for over 40 years, Larry, children Tiffany (Tom) Ford, Allan (Andreanna) Hunter, and grandchildren Alexander, Eva, and Cora.
Heather spent many years working in human resources, and retired as Director of HR for Nygård International. She fulfilled her dream of operating a bed and breakfast on the riverfront, making all guests feel like family. Heather was involved with many associations, including Bed & Breakfast Manitoba, Interlake Tourism Association, and Ladies’ Auxiliary of the Winnipeg Barbershop Chapter. Heather was instrumental in developing the Homes for the Holidays Heritage Tours to benefit local charities.
