Heather Ann Watt
Heather Ann Watt was born in London, ON on 18 Nov 1974 and died with peaceful dignity and grace in Fredericton, NB on 28 April 2019. She grew up in Miramichi, NB before exploring parts of the world to learn, visit, farm and cook. Driven through her love of nature, Heather took an Outward Bound course in Northern Ontario to garner the skills that she would use while volunteering to work on organic farms throughout rural England, Scotland and Wales. Heather was an extremely hard worker with great strength and determination.
Heather was a whiz in the kitchen, obtaining her Red Seal after attending the Culinary Institute of Canada in PEI. She could whip up a meal with at a moment’s notice…if only she had written down her recipes! She used these skills to open and run Heather’s Restaurant in Vancouver, BC for a number of years.
Heather has always enjoyed gardening, getting involved in a community garden wherever she lived. She also adored her two nephews, keeping up with their busy lives and sending little gifts when she found the right one. She was never without a cat, adoring them always and standing up for animal rights when she felt it was needed.
Heather is predeceased by her father, John Bruce Watt and her paternal grandparents, John and Francis Watt (Fredericton, NB) and her maternal grandparents, Myrtle and Donald Macintosh (Charlottetown, PEI). She will be deeply missed by her mother, Eleanor and sister Janet (Chris), their children Lauchlann and Kai, special friends Kathryn, Sue and Annie as well as extended family far and wide.
