Heather Louise Dunsmore

DUNSMORE, Heather Louise - Heather Louise Dunsmore, wife, mother, grandmother, sister and friend, passed away peacefully on Thursday November 22, 2018 at Woodstock General Hospital in her 75th year. Heather will be greatly missed by her beloved husband William (Bill) of 47 years, and their children Melanie, Robert (Kelsi) and Daniel (Shayla) and grandson Wyatt. She is survived by her brothers Tim (Jennifer), Randy (Joan), Dan (Tineke) and Kevin (Joyce) and sister-in-law Beverly and many nieces and nephews. Heather is predeceased by her parents John and Doris Woods (Osbourne), brother Terry, in-laws Ross and Edith Dunsmore (Larsen) and their children Barry and Trudy. Heather was born in Hamilton, Ontario on July 6, 1944, and enjoyed a career as a registered nurse for more than 25 years. A passionate and talented soprano singer, Heather was a long-standing member of the Woodstock Choralaires and Tillsonburg’s St. Paul’s United Church Choir. Heather was known for her green thumb, her bountiful garden and her beautiful quilts. While she loved calling Tillsonburg home, she and Bill were delighted to be known as “Winter Texans.” She will be remembered for her kindness, generosity, big heart and warm hugs. Family was everything to Heather. A nurturer by heart, she was fondly known by her children’s friends as their “second Mum.” She always went above and beyond to care for others, giving of herself without expecting anything in return. She will be missed by many. The family would like to send their sincerest thanks to Care Partners and the palliative care staff at Woodstock General Hospital. Family and friends are invited to a Celebration of Life, Friday December 14, 2018 at 2 pm at St. Paul’s United Church, Tillsonburg. A private interment will be held at a later date.
