Obituary: Heather Cutten

In Loving Memory of Heather Dianne Cutten, 1944 to 2022

Heather Dianne Cutten, nee Eisan, passed away on the 23rd of June, at the Victoria General Hospital after a short and unexpected illness. She passed peacefully with her husband and two daughters by her side.

Heather (Nana) leaves a huge hole in the hearts of her entire family and friends who benefited from her kindness and compassion. Heather was born on May 3rd, 1944 in Halifax, Nova Scotia to Norman and Lillian Eisan and was one of seven children. Heather is survived by her sister Rosalie Dyer and her many nieces and nephews.

Heather married her life-long partner of 55 years, Mark Cutten on October 14, 1967 in Halifax, Nova Scotia. Their journey together took them from Nova Scotia to Trinidad, Winnipeg, St.Lucia, Calgary and finally Salt Spring Island, BC. Along the way, they had three children David (Patricia), Laura (Alejandro) and the baby Sara. She was blessed with five grandchildren, Isabella, Olivia, Joshua, Iliana and Madeline, whom she loved dearly and shared a unique and special relationship with each.

After raising her children, and at the age of 70, Heather studied and was ordained as a Deacon of the Anglican church. She was tremendously proud of this accomplishment and touched the lives of many more and offered years of community service and outreach.

Heather (Nana) will be truly missed and never forgotten for she left a mark on all of us.
Grief is the price we pay for love.

A celebration of life will be held on Salt Spring Island, October 1st, 2022 at 2pm at All Saints by the Sea.

    I had the pleasure of knowing Heather for over 20 years. I will miss her and keep her in my memories. Her upbeat outlook on life and willingness to help others were always present in her interactions with people. My family and I hope that Mark and his family find comfort in the memories of a life well lived. Best wishes to all. Sincerely Walter Flores
