Nancy Heywood

Died March 26, 2011 Nanaimo Regional General Hospital after a short illness. Born June 26, 1938 in Vancouver, Nancy was the beloved daughter of the late Herb and Inez Darroch, and twin sister of the late Wendy Darroch. Nancy is survived by and will be greatly missed by her devoted husband of 49 years, George Heywood, son Scott and his wife Kathy, daughter Tricia and brother-in-law Jim Shuttleworth. Raised in Vancouver and Toronto, Nancy married George in 1961 and they spent their lives together raising their children in Canada and the US. In 1988 Nancy and George moved to Whistler, BC where Nancy worked as an interior designer, and fully retired in Qualicum Beach in 2003. Nancy traveled the world with George and made friends wherever she went. She had a wonderful generosity of spirit, breathed life into everything she did and loved nothing more than to spend time with friends and family and welcome people into her home. She leaves many shared and happy memories. A Celebration of Nancy’s life will be held at Memorial Golf Course in Qualicum Beach on April 30 2–5pm.
