Obituary: Handy, Heather Ann


It is with immense heartache we share that our sweet and loving Heather Handy put her pain at ease and left us to rest peacefully early Sunday morning, surrounded by the love of her family at the Owen Sound Hospital on December 8, 2019.

Born in Brampton, Ontario, on September 14, 1942, she was a daughter of the late Fred and Lillian Davey.

Heather was the beloved wife of Harvey Handy with whom she recently celebrated 33 loving years of marriage. She was the incredible mother to Geoff and Corinne Knight. In 1983 when Heather came into Harv’s life, together they merged and embraced a larger family unit including Ian Handy (Edward) and Carolyn Letourneau (Gil). Heather was the devoted and proud grandma to Zoe Letourneau, Quinton Letourneau, and Avery Chaplin.

She was the middle child of five siblings, predeceased by Douglas Davey and Brenda Stewart. She is survived by Barbara Woods and Brian Davey. Heather was blessed to be the aunt to Christine Stewart, Ken Stewart, Cyndy Knapp, Bill Woods, Steven Woods, Kim Green, Fred Davey, Michael Davey, and Rachel Davey. Heather will be sadly missed by the Handy family and by all of those who she has touched throughout her life. Love never ends.

A service celebrating Heather’s life will be conducted at Meaford United Church on Friday, December 13, 2019, at 1:30 p.m. with visiting the hour prior to service. There will be a time for refreshments and sharing memories of Heather in the fellowship hall following the service.

As your expression of sympathy, and in lieu of flowers, donations to Princess Margaret Hospital or the Owen Sound Regional Hospital Foundation would be kindly appreciated and may be made through the Ferguson Funeral Home, 48 Boucher St. E., Meaford, ON, N4L 1B9, to whom arrangements have been entrusted.
