AYEARST, Mary Elizabeth (née HECKMAN)
73, of London (formerly of Saint Thomas) died at peace in the arms of her daughter on Thursday, March 9, of multiple myeloma. Born in Orange, California, she moved in infancy to Saskatchewan with her family after a frightening earthquake in California. Eventually they settled in Fingal, when her father joined the Canadian Air Force during the war. Mom had an independent and adventurous spirit and instilled the best of those qualities in her three children. She not only gave us our wings, but the courage to fly. A softie who carried spiders outside to freedom and couldn't bear to trap a cottage mouse, she could also move Heaven and Earth to stand up for her kids or the rights of others. Mom always cheered for the underdog -- with the notable exception of favourite golfer Tiger Woods -- and her great sense of style had her constantly redecorating the homes of Friends and family. Her creative and artistic talents found a natural outlet in pottery and works from her studio adorn homes across Ontario, as gifts and through sales at galleries and charity auctions. In later years she was also a travel guide, escorting tours of the exotic and the mundane and often accompanied by her dear sister June. She took groups to Europe and the U.S. but also slogged through day trips to baseball games and shopping malls. And, it remains a mystery how well she could lead a trip to Peru, Bolivia and Paraguay yet get hopelessly lost with her sister while driving to meet family in Florida. She was never afraid to learn new things and late in life became an Internet junkie, messaging family and Friends around the globe with letters and photos. She even came to own pirated music CDs, for an eclectic taste that ran from Lyle Lovett to B.B. King. Mom treasured summers at her Bogie's Beach cottage, especially the times watching her grandchildren at play. They grew up there in the same carefree way that her own kids did during their summers at her Mom and Dad's home in Indiana -- with tons of adventure and smothered in love. Mom was a stickler for loving us all equally, although in individual ways matched to our personalities. (At Christmas, the value of our presents would be exactly the same to the point of adding a trinket or two to balance things.) She was extremely proud of "how you kids turned out," as she would often say, pointing to Steve and his wonderful family, her cherished relationship with Liz and John's love sent continually from a thousand miles away. Mary is survived by her three children John (Flor-Anne), of Amethyst Harbour near Thunder Bay; Steve (Maura) and their children Josh, Jordan and Danielle, of Barrie; and Liz ROBB (Ted,) of London. Also surviving are brother Glen (Pete) HECKMAN and his wife Estella of Elkton, Florida; and several nieces, nephews and cousins. Cherished friends and soul mates Naomi GIBSON, Audrey THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON and Marianne FISHER also survive. Predeceased by her husband John (Pat) in 1982, parents Pete and Beryl HECKMAN, sister June FILLMORE in 2003 and brothers Robert and Jackie in infancy. Cremation has taken place and at Mom's request there will be no funeral service. A visitation to celebrate Mary's life, will be held Saturday, March 18, from 1 to 4 p.m. at Westview Funeral Chapel, 709 Wonderland Rd. N., in London. Mom was very grateful to Liz's employer, a registered charitable organization, for allowing her the flexibility to address Mom's needs during the lengthy illness. In recognition of that and in lieu of flowers, we would be grateful for donations made to: Hutton House Foundation, 654 Wonderland Rd. North, London N6H 3E5. Tax receipts will be issued. Aunt June will be waiting in Heaven to guide her on their next adventure -- but first Mom will probably want to redecorate the place. Rest in peace, dear heart.
