Memorable Manitobans: Heather May McCaine-Davies (1948-2007)

Editor and publisher.

Born at Winnipeg on 25 June 1948, daughter of Gordon and Olive McCaine, she grew up in East Kildonan where she attended Miles Macdonell Collegiate and graduated in 1977 with a BA degree from the University of Manitoba. She and husband Al Davies started a publishing company, a division of which became a leader in the field of visual communications. In the early 1980s, the company provided prepress services for The Winnipeg Sun.

After selling the company, she became publisher and editor of Seniors Today, developing it into a twice-monthly publication featuring news, information and entertainment for older Manitobans. She published resource guides for seniors as well as Business People Magazine. In 1998 she sold the business after a bout of illness, the same year that the Manitoba Council on Aging honoured her with its Recognition Award. In retirement, she fundraised and developed a newsletter for the Oakbank Community Club.

She died at Winnipeg on 18 January 2007,
