Heather Patricia Lague (nee Groves)

March 17, 1939 – June 11, 2022

 

Heather passed away peacefully on June 11, 2022, in Stittsville, Ontario at age 83, surrounded by her family. She leaves behind husband Pierre Lague, daughter Andrea Asbil (Mark) and son Greg Lague (Jane). She will be missed by her grandchildren Haley, Cole, Cameron and Julian and many nieces, nephews, and friends.

 

Born in Verdun, Quebec, to the late Kay (Reibitt) and William Stanley Groves and a sister to Beverley Groves, she was predeceased by sisters Viola and June and brother Stan (Glenys), as well as sister-in-law Gaëtane and brothers-in-law Roger (Heather) and Kjeld (Beverley).

 

Heather spent most of her life in the Montreal area, where she met her husband Pierre and worked over 25 years for Ciba-Geigy/Novartis Canada. Music, especially jazz, was always playing in their house and family was the centre of her life. Heather and Pierre moved to Ottawa in 2016 to join her children and their families.

 

Special thanks to the exceptional and caring staff at Granite Ridge, Stittsville, who helped make Heather’s last few years so memorable.
