Mary Anne Kierstead
The passing of Mary Anne (Heaton) Kierstead, wife of Reid Kierstead of Back Bay NB occurred at the Saint John Regional Hospital, Saint John NB on September 29, 2020. Born in Meriden CT on March 1, 1947, she was a daughter of the late Harold and Lillian (Curtis) Heaton. A loving wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother and sister, in addition to her husband Reid, Mary is survived by her children: Krysten (Osborne) Justason, Jennifer Conley (Greg Burt), Kim (Ricky) Waycott and Terri (Micah) Bergey; grandchildren: Sean (Rose), Cody, Brittany (Dan), Frankie (Noah), Lauryn, Ariana (Shane) and Kaden; one great-grandchild: Rowan; her sister: Joy Higgins; several nieces, nephews and cousins. Besides her parents, she was predeceased by her beloved sons: Timmy and Danny; one brother: Clifford.

Mary loved her holidays and especially enjoyed decorating for each one. Halloween was a special time and everyone had to visit. She loved her family get togethers and Sunday visits from her grandchildren. Mary loved her husband Reid and her family was the most important thing in her life. She enjoyed living by the ocean and will be sadly missed by her family and many friends.

The family would also like to express special thanks to the Eastern Charlotte Extra Mural for their kind and compassionate care shown to Mary.
