Sheila Joanne Heaton

December 30, 1942 ~ February 20, 2022 (age 79)


It is with heavy hearts that we announce the sudden passing of our beloved wife, mother and grandmother, Joanne Heaton, on February 20, 2022.  Born in Pincher Creek on December 30, 1942 and raised on the family farm north of Cowley.

Joanne is survived by her loving husband of 59 years, David Heaton, children Rob Heaton & Nicki (Todd) Goodreau.  Joanne has 11 Grandchildren, Geoffrey, Taylor, Trevor and Alley (Goodreau), Emilie, Natalie and Noel (Heaton), Allissa, Nicolas, Josh & Jayson (Heaton) and 1 great-grandson Theo, and niece Christine Lank.  Joanne is predeceased by her son, Kevin Heaton, sister Isobel (Ernest) Lank and her parents Robert & Alison Day. 

Joanne always had great excitement for fashion and developed her skills for trends while working at Ruffles.  Always dressed to the nines and happy to help anyone pick out a new outfit or two.  Fashion she enjoyed but she loved her grandchildren, always excited to watch them compete, or to share a story with them gave her great pleasure.  Joanne was always happy to help others in the community, from getting them to an appointment, dropping off food, or simply having a visit to brighten up someone’s day.  Joanne’s commitment to her faith led her to volunteering on various committees and helping in faith community.


A Memorial Service will be held on Saturday, April 9th at the Vertical Church at 2:00 pm
