Heather Kaario Obituary

Born in North Vancouver, BC Heather was an adventurous child and loved outdoor sports. She graduated from UBC with a degree in Education and taught in Kelowna, Vancouver, and


She married Allan Kaario, her high school sweetheart in 1966 and enjoyed taking a break from teaching by spending summers travelling the coast on Allan’s fishing boat. They moved to Parksville in 1971 with two-monthold Angela followed two years later by Travis.

Heather and Allan enjoyed many years with the Parksville Kinsmen Club.  Genealogy became her hobby of choice. The hours disappeared as she put together family histories.

She was previously deceased by her parents, Jean and George Priestman, and her older sister, Margaret.  She is survived by her husband, Allan, her brother John, daughter Angela (Jody), son Travis (Kelly), and grandchildren Tayler, Mattiah, Judah, and Bailey.

Many thanks to the staff at the Qualicum Manor for their wonderful care.

She will be dearly missed.
