So many memories flooded my mind, memories of HEATHER! My cousin Heather visited me in Israel and actually came to the "Westbank" when I was living there. It was the settlement of Emanuel! I remember her walking with me and laughing and saying that this was much more civilized than she expected! I met her again in Jerusalem and then of course in Montreal at our family reunion she was lucid and she knew who everyone was. But Heather was always there at the hotel. I remember the birth of each of the girls and now the girls Susan, Ellen, and Nancey all grown up and with families and careers of their own. There is a void now in all our lives where Heather used to be with her blonde hair red lips sparkling blue eyes and laughter. My love and deepest condolences to all. Love Diana- Tzfat.

Dear Susan, Jeffrey and family members, Unfortunately, I too am suffering a loss and did not refer to this site until now. I have many fond memories spent with the Averson family and Heather. She was so positive, welcoming and always interested in my family whenever our path crossed. A smile on her face was her trademark. My sincere condolences and I know that fond memories help overcome, to some extend, the sorrow we experience. My thoughts are with you. Myrna Housefather

Susan, Jeffery, Stephanie, Jessica and family, I was deeply saddened to hear about Auntie Dolly's passing.

She used to have afternoon tea with my father Mayer Levy. I saw here in Israel when she came to visit with Mr Prout. May her memories be a blessing.

Sandy W - 7 days ago

Dear Susan, Ellen and Nancy. As I sit in your old country house here on Trout Lake, my brain is flooded with memories of growing up beside you guys, the games we played, the swimming we did, (Sandy --Ellen) the jokes you taught me, and the rules your mother would give me. I remember Nina, your cat (whose name I forgot) and my first ever Joke: Q: If a Bee was flying North,East, West and South, where would he go to the bathroom. A: A BP station. As a kid I'd walk in and out of your house, and your mother would greet me like I was simply an addition to the family. So she taught me to wipe my shoes, use a scissors for the grapes, knock before entering and stop interrupting. And she always had great stories to tell. No command or task was ever conveyed without an attached tale. Later on, when you guys were gone, the roles were reversed. She or Todd would call me over to fix their TV, their internet, their computers, install software, find passwords and sometimes even change a lightbulb. We were more than neighbours. We were friends. Death is the chasm of emptiness it leaves in those still alive. Your mum's memories will always be prevalent in my heart and in my brain. She will not be forgotten. xoxoxoxo

Anna Barber - 7 days ago

Dear Nancy, Ellen, and Susan, I just heard the sad news and want to let you know that I'm thinking of you and of course am flooded by memories which go back more than half a century, from the oldest incarnations of the shul, to Dufferin and Trout Lake, and more recently -- although it's probably about twenty years ago -- to the lovely time spent here when your mother and Todd visited Israel. I'm so sorry that the last years were so hard for her and for you. But in my memories, she always has a smile and a way of making one feel better (even when I had my first car accident around the corner from you and came back to be calmed down with sweet tea). I feel honored to be among those who got a birthday card every year. Her sunny, lovely face and voice will stay with me always. May you find comfort and strength, love, anna

The Herman Family - 8 days ago

Heather was smart, warm, caring, and kind, with a wonderful sense of humour. She generously opened her home to us to host our wedding celebration – and this, while she was very pregnant with Nancy. She always looked prim and proper and impeccably groomed. She had so many close friends, both old and new. She always looked forward to her amazing yearly reunions in the country with her high school friends. She loved entertaining, baking, creating her miniature goodies, and knitting afghans, which she also taught Shirley how to do! She was an avid reader, and loved camping, travelling, and of course, her beloved grandchildren. She faithfully watched Coronation Street. She cherished her photos and recipes from the past – and thanks to her daughters Ellen and Susan, we have many of them. She always enjoyed her many plants on her balcony – and we did too. It meant a lot to us to see that our weekly visits with Heather at the Eldercare, where we shared our photo albums and Shirley’s family history album, brought her so much joy. How lucky we were to have known her. We adored her. She was truly a special and rare human being and our sympathy goes out to her entire family. Bernard, Shirley, Aviva, Shira, and Rena Herman

Paula Horn - 9 days ago

Dear Nancy, Susan, and Ellen - Our families go back a long time from when we were among the newest members of the fledgling Reconstructionist Synagogue. We saw each other for many years particularly on the High Holidays. Our mothers ( Ida ) quickly became good friends and I have fond memories of visiting your mother from north ( Trout Lake) to south (Florida.) Whenever I called my mother on the phone and the line was busy for a long long time ( way before call waiting), when I finally reached my mother, I would say, you were on the phone with Heather, right? Your mother proudly showed off her little books with her tiny handwriting that kept track of birthdays, anniversaries, and other important events, and she always sent a lovely card to mark the occasion. I remember the warmth in her voice, her twinkling blue eyes, and her smile. I hope that all the fond tributes you are receiving will warm your hearts.

Susie Marcovitz - 10 days ago

My favorite memory of Heather was visiting her at her condo in Florida when she was there. The year was 1998. I had just gotten the job at Columbia Hospital. My fingers were black from being fingerprinted and Heather was patiently listening to my endless stories about this job and making suggestions how to get the ink off my hands. This was before computers took over. At the same time, she was serving coffee and cake and organizing a luncheon for ladies in her building. I made frequent visits to her condo and always felt welcome and wanted. The most striking memory was a dark time in my life when I was going through a divorce. Heather was so supportive and assured me that there is life after divorce. At the time, I was not sure. Heather is the one who had the idea of me buying the condo Norman bought for his parents and wanted to sell. I have lived happily in this condo with Ralph (who came along two years after the divorce) for the last twenty-five years. It was Heather’s concern, wisdom, and humor that was so typical of her and healing for me. I feel so fortunate to have had Heather in my life. You are all in my thoughts and prayers. Love Always, Susie

Dear Susan, Ellen, and Nancy and families; I am so sorry to hear the sad news on the passing of your beloved mother. Having been a lifelong friend of my mother Barbara, she was affectionately known as Auntie Heather to us. Our families shared countless wonderful memories together over the 70+ year friendship that started when they met at the Montreal High School for Girls. This everlasting and enduring friendship is a testament to the love this amazing group of ladies shared with each other, and I know that my mother is heartbroken over the loss of her dear Heather as are we all. She was a beautiful presence in our lives and we will miss her twinkling eyes, her kindness, loyalty and gentle spirit. On behalf of my family, I extend my deepest condolences to you and your families on your loss. We send you love and strength at this most difficult time. Fondly, Linda

Judah Wolofsky - 10 days ago

Dear Susan, Ellen and Nancy. I cannot express my feelings about learning of your mother's passing. It brings back unforgettable memories of the growing up summers of the 1940s and 50s in Trout Lake. My country house was built by my father seven years before my birth and when your grandfather Laz and Dr. Harry Cheifetz bought the neighboring property and cottages and your family and Philip Cheifetz's parents moved in, i, your mother and Philip became a three same-age pre-teen triumvirate of friends. .We played together on the grounds and at the lakeside, splashing, swimming, rowing, caught frogs, caught fireflies in the early evenings, picked strawberries, blueberries and raspberries for our mothers (and my grandmother, who lived with my family) and even crabapples from the trees in Dr, David Muhlstock's "estate" nearby which his daughter Buddy would climb and throw down to us. Your late uncle David was just getting out of his babyhood and most of the time we could traipse around since most of the times it was only our mothers (and grandmother) who were there, the fathers all working away in Montreal and only coming back to the country on Friday evenings till Sunday evenings. All this happened slowly. My father, who suffered from Parkinson's disease for many years died in 1947 (I was only 12), Dr. Harry Cheifetz died in 1958 and his wife Dorothea (Phil's mother) sold the country house We had slowly grown older. Your parents married but still continued to live in that cottage. I began working summers in a Ste Agathe hotel and would only come back on my day off, once every two weeks. But your mother remained and I watched the three of you slowly appear and grow up. Your late father was still there on weekends (often to walk around the lake).Eventually, my brother and his family took over my home cottage and you three moved out, but your mother stayed on. I would frequently be up there, and she was always happy, great, being very comfortable in her home and loving to reminisce with me. While I haven't seen her for the past decade or so, she was always great, happy and close to my heart, where she'll always remain. I likewise wish all three of you the very best, free from any sorrow for decades to come. Love Yudie .

Marjorie Mayers - 10 days ago

Dearest Susan, Ellen, Nancy and families, It is with great sadness that I write to extend my deepest and most heartfelt condolences to you and your families on the passing of Auntie Dolly. She was so much a part of our lives for our whole growing up and most especially, of course, nearly my mom's entire life. She was kind and funny, devoted and loyal, and a committed best friend to my mom. To watch the two of them together, to listen to the stories they told about the "trouble" they would get up to as kids, or to hear the two of them on the phone was like being witness to a loving comedy show only possible between two lifelong soul sisters. Even in while in Eldercare visiting your mom with mine evidenced Auntie Dolly's beautiful smile and kind disposition as she would light up to see her beloved Eunice. They shared a whole life together and as such your mom was so much a part of mine. In the deep sadness of the loss of your mom I also want to acknowledge an immeasurable sense of gratitude for the friendship those two shared. I hope that the outpouring of love and support, memories and recollections of best times together bring comfort during this time. Much love to you three and your families. xox Marjie

Sending you my sincere condolences and may you be comforted by the many wonderful memories you now have to cherish.
