Heather Jean (nee Burns) Kline

July 10, 1974 ~ February 22, 2018 (age 43)

Heather Jean Kline, age 43, of Central Parkland Lodge in Lanigan passed away peacefully at her residence on Thursday, February 22, 2018 surrounded by her loving family.  Heather was born on July 10, 1974 to Garth and Doris (nee Eichorst) Burns in Humboldt.  She obtained her elementary education at Drake and high school in Lanigan, then went on to attend St. Peter’s College for one year.  She was active with school activities and her friends.  As a family they spent time together, fishing, curling and snowmobiling.  Heather was in love with a certain guy from an early age on and was the happiest bride when she married the love of her life Scott Kline on November 6, 1993.  They began their married life on a farm near where Scott grew up and they farmed with Scott’s dad and brother.  They were then blessed with two children, Amy and Bryce.  Scott and their children were her life and she was always there for all of them.  Heather was a very artistic person and loved to draw and paint from little on and created some beautiful pictures.  Heather also enjoyed bowling, music, scrapbooking, playing cards and watching TV.   She took part at North Star Mennonite Church by teaching Sunday School and was a leader for “Pioneer Girls” club.  Heather was employed at Drake Meats and also as secretary for the Drake Fire Brigade.  Heather and Scott enjoyed many snowmobile trips together in various parts of Saskatchewan, BC and especially to Island Park, Idaho.  She was a “true fisherman”, and you could bet that she would catch the most fish in a day and sometimes even the largest; then she could clean them at the end of the day ready for the frying pan.  She preferred to be outdoors working in their yard or helping Scott with farming duties.  Heather was proud of her ability to grow a good garden and especially some large and tasty strawberries.  She also loved the sights and sounds of ducks and geese, and the wild animals like deer and moose that could be seen from their living room window at times.  Heather was very supportive of her children, spending time driving them places and was there for them as much as was possible.   Her life shattered in 2005 when her only brother, Robby, died in a tragic accident.  Heather and Scott along with Doris and Garth helped each other through that terrible time.  Heather was a very determined, strong willed young lady who fought a long, hard battle with Multiple Sclerosis.  She fought the process all the way until it overpowered her and took her independence away.  She then moved to Central Parkland Lodge for continual care.  Heather has left many beautiful pictures that she painted for her family and passed on that talent to her daughter Amy.  Heather will be sadly missed and lovingly remembered by her husband of 24 years, Scott;  two children Amy Kline and Bryce Kline, both of Saskatoon; parents Garth and Doris Burns; parents-in-law Myrven and Marjorie Kline, all of Drake;  sister-in-law: Karen (Chris) Newberry and family Madison, Brittany and Graham  of Lanigan;  in-laws: Carolyn and Floyd Bartel of Drake and family Brandie (James) Dyck and children Juda, Harmony and Arileigh of Abbotsford, BC,  Tanya (Eric) Stinson and children Arya and Cameron of Regina, and  Calvin(Leah) Bartel and daughter Briar of Drake; and Jeff (Heather) Kline and family Jewels Kline (Matt) of Meadow Lake, Christian Kline and Diamond Kline, both of Drake;  Step Grandmother, Margaret Schroeder of Drake.  Heather was predeceased by her maternal and paternal Grandparents, her brother, Robby Burns and her cousin, Dean Rucks. The Funeral Service for Heather was held on Saturday, March 3, 2018 at 2:00 p.m. at North Star Mennonite Church, Drake, officiated by Pastor Dan Graber.  Interment followed in Trinity Lutheran Cemetery, Lanigan.  Memorial donations in Heather’s name may be made to Central Parkland Lodge for the purchase of a new bathtub.
