Heaton, Norleen Edna (nee Koch)
Passed away peacefully at home on August 8, 2019 at the age of 86,

Norleen was born in Regina, Saskatchewan and raised in the small village of Edenwold, Saskatchewan. After marrying Don, an RCMP officer, she moved through numerous small detachments as a Prairie officers wife, assisting in the office and coping with challenging living conditions. As their life progressed, they travelled the world. She had dinner with the Queen and was presented to the Pope, but at heart she was always the girl from Edenwold.
