KUNSMAN, Heather beloved wife of Byron Kunsman, passed away peacefully, surrounded by her family, at the age of 72 years, at St Michael’s Palliative Care Hospital following a courageous battle with cancer.
Heather was raised in Lethbridge, met Byron in high school and they married shortly after graduation in 1964. They worked together in the family business (Kunsman Transport) for many years and once the business was sold Heather moved on to selling real estate and then became a real estate appraiser in the mid nineties. She started her own business, Kunsman Appraisal Services Ltd. In 2001 and ran it successfully until retirement in 2012.
After retiring Heather and Byron wintered in Arizona and enjoyed travelling and camping with family and friends in the Good Sam R.V. Club. They travelled to Branson, Missouri in 2014 and that trip was the highlight of Heather’s R.V. experiences. She loved to travel and enjoyed meeting new people.
