Support for the O’Brien Family

The O’Brien Family would like to first and foremost thank everyone for their outpouring of support and love. Things are easier when we’re together. We are floored at the generosity of others. Our main concern right now is our Father and each other. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.




On April 19, 2020 the unthinkable happened
when Heather O'Briens life was horrifically taken too soon in the shooting in Nova Scotia. She was a loving wife and mother, who cherished her grandchildren above all else. She was a dedicated nurse with VON for nearly two decades. She left behind her husband, children, grandbabies, siblings and many nieces and nephews who will never forget the light she was to all. 
We are asking for help with funeral costs and to help her husband Teddy through this unthinkable time and whatever else the future may bring. Anything is greatly appreciated and will not go unnoticed by this amazing family. Thank you!
