Heather Baxter

November 18, 2019

Our beloved Heather fell into the arms of her Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ on Monday, November 18, 2019. Heather was born and grew up in the seaside town, Portstewart, Northern Ireland, which explains her love for God’s creation.

Her lifelong passion was Physiotherapy. She graduated from the University of Ulster in 1997, and having moved to Vancouver, Canada, in 2002, she joined the wonderful team at Dunbar Physiotherapy Clinic, where she worked until her battle with ovarian cancer began in August 2017. Heather refused to be defined by cancer. She took her pain and transformed it to be a witness to the love and grace of God and through this touched many lives with her faith.

Written in 1996, Heather kept a little green card in her Bible that clearly described how she lived her life: “a cheerful servant of Jesus Christ.” Sweetheart, you were that and much much more. You truly were a good and faithful servant. Enter into the joy of your Lord. We will all miss you, and we will love you forever.

-Martin, Shannon & Erin, and her extended family and friends.
