Heather Nicholson, aged 65, passed away peacefully after a long struggle with Parkinson's Disease at Riverside Glen on Saturday August 24, 2019.
She was born in Jos, Nigeria to missionary parents, Paul and Francis Wilson on July 23,1954. She graduated from nurses training at the University of Toronto in 1975 and faithfully and lovingly cared for patients in the field of Psychiatry until her disease prevented her from continuing 10 years ago. She married Paul on June 25,1977 at High Park Baptist Church in Toronto and ecstatically welcomed their daughter, Melissa, into their life three years later. In 1990 they moved to their dream country property just north of Guelph Ontario. Together many happy times were spent gardening, swimming and playing with dogs. Heather faithfully loved her Lord with all her heart and was a tireless prayer warrior. She was predeceased by her father, Paul Wilson and will be missed greatly by her husband, daughter, mother Fran Wilson, sister Laurel Bell and husband Brian, brothers and their wives Gord and Liz and Doug and Morag, many nieces, nephews and faithful friends.
