June 22, 1928 - December 12, 2013
Mary Heidelberg passed away on December 12, 2013 at Hospice of Northwest Ohio at the age of 85. Mary was born to Mildred (Elliott) and Joseph Murray in Detroit, Michigan. She married the love of her life, James Edward Heidelberg on August 3, 1946 to whom she was married 55 years. Together they enjoyed the birth and growth of their three children. Mary was a wonderful role model to her children: Jim Heidelberg, Toni (Ken) Gerber, and Mark Heidelberg, grandchildren: Jim (Julie) Heidelberg, Scott Heidelberg, Craig (Christy) Heidelberg, Kristen (Clay) Gifford, Sarah Heidelberg, Melissa (David) Tusing and daughter-in-laws: Cathy Heidelberg, Diane Heidelberg. To her joy, she also was blessed with four great-grandchildren: Emma, Katie, Logan and Claire. Family, friends, traditions, love and laughter were foremost in her heart. We have lasting memories of her Christmas Eve family gatherings, Thanksgivings, her signature meals and family nights that included Scrabble and cards with her grandchildren. One of her grandchildren described her as the most kind, intelligent, strong and funny person she knew. Lastly, she leaves behind me - her daughter, Toni, and my ever-supportive husband, Ken, whom my mother adored. Though she has left a hole in my heart, it is filled with life lessons of love, generosity and joy. Mom and I had conversations about life and death in her last months. It was our hope and belief that she would join her loving husband, Jim, her sons, Jim and Mark, her mother, Mildred and other loved ones. Much appreciation and thanks goes to the aides and nurses who cared for Mom at Otterbein Monclova. Their caring was always evident. Heart-felt gratitude goes to Bev and Megan, Otterbein aides, who visited her at Hospice bringing love and comfort. Those wishing to make a memorial contribution may consider: Otterbein Tree of Hope Foundation or Hospice of Northwest Ohio. (Yes, they are as wonderful as you hear.) Visitation will be at Ansberg West, 3000 West Sylvania Avenue, on Friday, December 20, 2013 from 2:00 ??" 8:00 p.m. A memorial service will take place at 7:00 p.m. Burial will be private.
