Passed peacefully, surrounded all day by beloved family in the last minutes of the “Snow Moon” Lunar eclipse on February 10th.
Heidi was born December 12, 1964 to her late mother Norma Williams, and late father Roy McAlpine she has been survived by all seven of her siblings Scott McAlpine, Adrienne McAlpine, Rhonda Grantham, Lana McAlpine, Kirsti Renwall, Michael Williams, and Louie Williams.
Her young years we’re filled with music, dance, and laughter. She was a social person with two sisters very close in age, Rhonda McAlpine, and Lana McAlpine, all three sisters were remembered as a unit with unique personalities that made them distinctly stand out in a room.
Heidi has always loved music. So much that she met her future husband and father of her children while watching a Battle of the Bands competition where musician Ray Harvey was judging in a Vancouver night club. Her, and Ray spent years together in the city before deciding to move to Vancouver Island to start a family.
Family has always been first for Heidi. Prior to the birth of her own two children, she fussed over her first born niece Talia McAlpine, and nephew Gregor Grantham. They had an early childhood filled with warm memories of her beautiful laugh and kind heart.
Soon after her own very first was born Adam Harvey, and she learned what true love meant. Heidi, Adam, and Ray continued their adventure that brought them to the small town of Youbou where they bought their forever home and welcomed their youngest son Owen Harvey. The years to follow can be clearly remembered as the happiest proudest years of her life as she watched her boys grow and discover the world around them.
Heidi had an incredible sense of adventure and a way to make life more fun. Many beautiful memories were spent in the outdoor world around her. She had an ability to relate to people of all walks of life, age groups, and backgrounds which made Heidi a friend to many. She cherished her friendships and what each person brought to her life.
Please join us in celebrating her life at 8550 Hemlock Street at the Youbou Community Center, Saturday, March 18, at 2:00pm. We welcome you to prepare happy stories, or photos to share with her family.
Heidi will be remembered always for her free spirit, and gentle heart.
We will miss you, as a Mother, Wife, Sister, Aunty, and FRIEND.
