Patricia A. Heiny, 85

In loving memory of Patricia Ann Heiny, 85, who peacefully passed from this life to eternal life on May 24, 2016, in DeBary, Florida.

Patricia was born June 25, 1930, to Martin and Esther O’Marro. Married to James Heiny March 2, 1950. They have six surviving children; Deborah Van Ravenhorst, Craig Heiny, Mike Heiny (Maxine Tasker), Bill Heiny, Jon Heiny, Amy Heiny (Mark Buringrud); who were happily and healthily raised in the small burg of Lansing, Minnesota.

Patricia was a very active member of Our Lady of Loretto Church in Brownsdale, Minnesota. She was also an active member of the Lansing School PTA.

Patricia was a great woman of faith and full wisdom. She was always lending a helping hand, extending a shoulder to cry on, and a heart that listens. Her 17 grandchildren and 21 great-grandchildren enjoyed the loving hugs and kisses from their grandma.

In 1974 Pat and Jim relocated to Austin, Minnesota. Patricia became a member of Queen of Angels Church where she continued her works of service and acts of kindness. Patricia had also been employed at times by Bushaw Bakery, Holiday Inn Catering and Johnson Floral. Her primary passion of work was caring for her family and home which she did in great fashion. She will be forever missed, but never forgotten.

Her celebration of life will be at 2 p.m. June 10, 2016, at Queen of Angels Church in Austin, Minnesota.
