Horne, Heather Lee Hubley
Age 63, Halifax, passed away peacefully with friends and family by her side in the QEII on October 7, 2016.
Heather was born on June 18, 1953 in Halifax to parents Walter and Eileen Hubley (Vincent). She attended Queen Elizabeth High school and became a successful realtor with Royal LePage. She was also a dedicated volunteer with the IWK and Camp Hill Veterans’ hospitals.
Heather will be dearly missed by her beloved husband, Jack Osmond, who was by her side through all of her recent health issues.
Heather is survived by her brother Vince Hubley and predeceased by her brother Scott Hubley. She is also survived by her sons Edward and Benjamin Horne (Letitia); step children April, Cindy, Jak, Kean (Jolene), and Scott (April) Osmond; grandson Charles; step grandchildren Chelsie, Paula, Nicole, Robyn, Marshall, Jennifer, Kean (Kaylee), Brittany; and step great grandson Kean III.
Heather loved the ocean, whether it was spending her childhood summers at her family cottage at Tantallon, collecting mermaids, or reading and getting some sun on the her deck in Bear Cove. Her home in Bear Cove was also the location of her famous lobster boils enjoyed by many family and friends.
HHH, as she was often known, had a vibrant, outgoing personality and could often be seen being chauffeured around in her convertible. She had a great eye for fashion and loved getting good deals at one of the many secondhand clothing stores across the province. She also looked forward to her annual trips to the Dominican Republic with her best friend Bunny.
In lieu of flowers, memorial donations can be made to support research in mitochondrial disorders at mitoaction.org. The family would like to thank the staff in section 7.4 at the QEII for making her last moments as peaceful as possible. A memorial celebration will be held at a later date with details to follow.
