Heather Ann Williams of Sylvan Lake passed away unexpectedly of complications from surgery Friday, January 13, 2012 at the Red Deer Regional Hospital at the age of 57 years. Heather was predeceased by her husband, Greg Dobson (2010) and son, Terry Williams (1992). She is survived by her three children: Carey Williams (Kris, Brendan, Madison and Payton), Corrie Cottam (Trent, Ashton, Kiana & Jacob) and Ross Dobson. Her memory will be further cherished by Jim Dobson (Lynn, Kimberly and Jennifer), Barb Strang (Colin and Emily) and Judy Dobson. Heather was a lover of animals and for the past several years Benny and Amber (her dogs) were her constant and cherished companions. Greg and Heather have owned Sylvan Auto Centre for the past thirteen years. Their customers became their friends and played a large role in their lives. They had the great pleasure of working alongside Earl Jackman and Steve Gathercole who were not only business colleagues but also great friends to them and their family. The families of Greg and Heather would like to thank all of Greg and Heather’s customers and friends for their past and continuing support at this very difficult time.
