It is with deep sadness we share the passing of our beloved wife, mother and grandmother.

Betty (Elizabeth) Theresa Heidman, cherished wife of Fred Heidman, passed away peacefully after a brief illness, at the West Parry Sound Health Centre on Thursday, June 4th, 2020. Age 76 years.

Predeceased by her parents Violet and Joseph Madigan. Dear sister of Velma (late Dennis), Shirley (late Don) and Deborah (Dan). Forever remembered by her children Janice (Terry), Dan (Laura) and Misty (Everett). Grandma will be missed beyond words by her grandchildren Zachary, Liam and Ethan, Aidan and Lily, and Gage and Zoë. Fondly remembered by her nieces, nephews, other relatives, and friends.

Betty was an avid reader, bird watcher and feeder of the squirrels. She loved baking Christmas cookies with her grandkids; her super power was always finding exactly the right gift. She was a sneaky card player with a sharp wit for quiet one-liners. The gravy at family dinners will never be the same. Her greatest joy was spending time with her family and watching her grandchildren grow and achieve their dreams. She always made a point of being there for recitals, concerts, graduations, and hockey games. Her love and commitment to family will carry on and flourish.

Private visitation will take place at the Logan Funeral Home, 81 James Street, Parry Sound (705-746-5855), followed by a private family interment and graveside service.

In lieu of flowers, the family graciously requests donations to Whispering River Music, the West Parry Sound Health Centre Foundation, or a charity of your choice.


Your warm and lively presence was a big part of my childhood, Aunt Betty, we'll miss you.

Dear Fred and family I'm so very deeply saddened that we are all losing Betty what a great lady she was LaVerne and I enjoyed her company so often at those Legion dinners with you Velma and others I offer you and your family our sincere and deepest sympathies your friends Jim & LaVerne Bunsch

-Jim Bunsch

My heartfelt condolences to everyone in the Heidman family. As you know, Mrs. Heidman was a big part of my childhood, always in the background while I was focused on my friendship with Misty. I remember vividly her warm smile, her laughter and always being there for her kids and me. As a child I saw her as a parent, not as a person. Now, as a parent myself, I look back and see the loving, kind, giving person that she was. Thank you Betty for all the gifts you gave me during childhood, I felt like your home was my second home and it was always full of your kindness and love. Wonderful memories of you will live on forever with so many people who's lives you touched. I wish I could be there to give condolences in person. My thoughts are with all of you during this difficult time.
