Heidi Adele Peterson
November 30, 1965-November 6, 2013
Heidi Adele Peterson, a vibrant spirit of Vancouver Island, passed away peacefully on November 6th, surrounded by family at the home of her daughter in Campbell River. Born in Seattle, Washington on November 30, 1956 to Warren and Sherry Peterson, she was raised on Quadra Island. Her family owned April Point lodge during its heyday as a premier resort, where Heidi grew up taking care of guests from around the world. Her concern for the well being of others became an integral part of her character, noted and appreciated by all who knew her. After extensive travel to the American Southwest, Australia and New Zealand, Heidi returned to Vancouver Island to raise two children, Evan and Alaina. She then put herself through school at North Island College where she earned an arts degree and started her own graphic design company, Chameleon Creative, still successfully in business in Campbell River. Her love for life was contagious; she always managed to make time to contribute to the community in many different ways, sitting on the board of the BPWN and Chamber of Commerce. Heidi also designed and participated in a complete remodel of her home in Willow Point as well as finding the time to travel to China, Europe, Mexico and Central America. Heidi led a full life and left it with peace in her heart and love for those around her. She will be greatly missed.
A celebration of life will be held on November 16th at 2pm at the Maritime Heritage Centre. In lieu of flowers, please make contributions to the ALS Society or the North Island College Foundation addressed to the ‘Heidi Peterson Memorial Bursary’.
