Fraleigh, Heather Ruth (nee Dargan)

Heather Fraleigh

It is with sad hearts that we announce the passing of Heather Ruth Fraleigh (nee: Dargan) on Wednesday, March 23, 2016.
Heather was born in Smith Falls, Ont. to Phillip and Marjorie Dargan on Jan. 15, 1943.
Heather was the second oldest child of five. She was raised in Brockville, Ont. where she attended nursing school.
Heather spent the majority of her life in upstate New York with her second husband Ronald Fraleigh.
In their retirement years, they traveled all over the U.S. and Canada as snowbirds, especially enjoying Arizona and Florida, then later in life settling in Fort Macleod, then eventually in Lethbridge.
Heather is survived by her soul mate, best friend, and husband of 44 years, Ron; her five children, April Wilgosh Fitzgerald and her husband Derryck, Robin Wilgosh and her partner Dwayne Lemaitre, Nathen Wilgosh, Shawn Fraleigh and his wife Janine and Michelle Hansen and her husband Nels.
Heather is survived also by her six special grandchildren, Ashley and Aaron Fitzgerald, Marcedy and Bryn Sprado, Sabrina Fraleigh and Christian Hansen.
Heather is also survived by her beloved sisters Ann Silverson, Mary-Jane O’Connell and Lee Walshe, all of her many nieces, nephews, and cousins, and her very special baby, her Pomeranian Petey who faithfully stayed by her side until the end.
Heather was a spunky lady who always told it like it was (even if sometimes her children and grandchildren did not like it hehe)! She had a laugh that would make others laugh; she had a kind soul, and would not think twice to give a stranger the shirt off her back.
Heather loved to travel and the Hawaiian Islands were one of her favourite places. She loved movies and music, especially listening to her favourite band Train. She absolutely loved photography and flowers, especially combining the two of them. Heather loved reading books, and read thousands of books over her lifetime, especially her very favourite author Fern Michaels. She was an animal lover and her pets were also her children.
Heather did not want a funeral, she did not want mourning, she wanted a celebration of her life with a party of friends and family, with her Train CDs playing in the background.
She will be forever missed by all the lives she touched.
