Heidi Marta Norgren (Nee Hansen)
September 12, 1963 – July 29, 2016
Ladner, British Columbia
Heidi would like to let you know her work here is done. She is in a place of no pain, restrictions or dysfunction. She received a call for an offer she couldn’t refuse, for an appointment from which she could not cancel. The appointment comes with a huge bonus, a reunion with her beloved pets, family and friends she has not seen in a long time. Her new mission takes her to a wonderful place where she will be running with the dogs in the fields (gum boots on), keeping the cats away from the baby rabbits, gardening and eating everything and anything she wants. Music, laughter, happiness and love are guaranteed.
She was made of strong Norwegian stock; Tromso, Norway to be exact. Daughter of Tore Hansen, a long time Ladner resident. She was married to the greatest guy but she was too much woman for one man. She publicly says she isn’t a Stompin Tom fan, yet privately her toe(s) have been noted to tap in tune to a few of her favourite Stompin Tom songs. She made a hell of a Swedish dish called pault even though she was Norwegian. She loved with everything she had: but could dislike just as strongly. Animals were her favourite. She had many animals over her short life time and I would challenge anyone to suggest that their pets were better cared for and loved more than Heidi’s. She was a Care Aid and Community Mental Health Worker. She was a buxomly blonde minus the bosom. Her humour was twisted at times just like her back.
But in all seriousness; she was a great wife and partner, a wonderful person, and a loyal friend.
Heidi is forever grateful for the love and support of her father Tore, Moe, Michelle, Marty and for the people in her life that stood by her and a few family members. Re-connecting with her brother made a positive impact during the final stages of her life. Heidi’s last wish for the people in her life is to be kind, helpful and love each other.
In lieu of flowers, Heidi has asked that you make a donation to SAINTS (Senior Animals In Need Today Society) in Mission, BC. Family and Friends of Heidi would like to thank the Fraser Health Palliative Home Care staff and the Irene Thomas Hospice for the wonderful comfort, support and care they provided.
