Heidi Frioud

died peacefully at home after a long struggle with dementia on Saturday February 23,2013 at the age of eighty. She will be missed and fondly remembered by Henri her loving husband of over 50 years, her children Jackie (Mark). Pierre (Meena) and Stephanie, grandchildren Sophie, Kieran, Anita and Devin. Heidi is survived by her brothers Robert, Richard and sister Kitty. Heidi was born in Munich, Germany; she grew up in England and moved to Canada at the age of 18. She graduated from UBC and Normal School in Vancouver, following which she taught school in several towns in BC including Summerland. Heidi had a great sense of adventure and loved traveling. In 1974-75 she convinced the family to travel around the world, in part by freighter from Yugoslavia to New Zealand, where we lived for a memorable nine months. Upon our return, Heidi took over Summerland Travel and enjoyed sending people all over the world until her retirement. She also enjoyed tennis, badminton, swimming, skiing and bridge. We will miss her sense of humour and her smile, and how she loved to have fun. Heidi was a wonderful wife, mother, grandmother and friend. She may be gone but her spirit remains. We would like to thank Dr. Venkataraman, the public health nurses, Debbie, Joanne, and Gina, and Heidi’s wonderful caregiver, Margo. We are also very grateful to her good friends Pat and Marianne. A celebration of Heidi’s life will be held in June. Funeral arrangements entrusted to Providence Funeral Homes, Summerland Chapel. Providence
