Sally MacArthur Obituary

Sally Ann MacArthur was born July 8th 1954 in Ormskirk England and passed away suddenly at her acreage in Beaver County on Feb 21, 2024.

Sally immigrated with her family at the age of 19 to Alberta, Canada on a skilled trades visa in Hairdressing. Her career in Hairdressing gave her the opportunity to travel the world teaching and earning degrees from some of the most prestigious institutions in her field.

She is dearly missed by her loving husband Brian Heinrichs, her two sons Kevin and Christopher MacArthur (Megan) as well as her brother Andrew Heaton (Susanne) her Dog Max, Cat Oliver, her three horses Luke, Jane and Shai, her grand puppy Gus and numerous relatives around the world.

Sally was an avid horseback rider who found joy in the trails of Cooking Lake - Blackfoot Provincial Park as well as the arena doing horse clinics with friends. She was a skilled quilter spending weeks on a quilt to donate to a worthy cause or gift to friends and family. Sally was also an amateur painter whose work hangs in the homes of those she loved. Her creativity also recently spilled over into intricate beading work.  Her passion for gardening created a home with some of the most beautiful colors of flowers and a bountiful garden of vegetables which attracted birds and squirrels alike to enjoy. 

Sally was the greatest single mother of all time who devoted every ounce of love and patience to her two boys.  She would tell everyone who would ask how proud she was of the men that they grew into.

There was never a child, teen or young adult that didn’t feel accepted, loved and welcomed in Sally’s home. She always offered an ear, a roof, a hug or love and understanding. 

Sally met the love of her life, Brian, 19 years ago and built a beautiful life home and family together with her pups, horses, cats and whatever animals needed a loving home. Brian brought Sally more joy in her final days then any women could ask for.

Sally MacArthur was a pillar of the community in Sherwood Park and Ardrossan. She was always the life of the party, entering many not knowing anyone and leaving, knowing everyone! Sally would always be there to hear people out, forgive their faults and say just the thing to make them laugh. She brought light and joy into every room she entered, and she will be forever missed by all who knew her.

In lieu of flowers, due to Sally’s love of animals, especially horses needing rescue, the family asks that donations be made to: https://horseheroesalberta.com/
