1975 – 2014
It is with great sadness that the family of Heidi Louise Lee (nee Bruin) announces her passing on Tuesday, September 30, 2014 at the age of 38 years. She was born on November 19, 1975 at Red Deer, Alberta. Heidi was a beautiful person with an intelligent nature. She had a sense of humour along with a giving and compassionate heart. She loved to play baseball in the summer and even joined a league. Her greatest love and joy were her sons and making sure they were happy. She had a passion for being a lifeguard and a swim coach.
