In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to honor the memory and life of Kathy Heck. Kathy was a beloved member of the National Ovarian Cancer Coalition Delaware Valley Chapter; and served on the volunteer committee board for five years. She was dedicated in helping other women with ovarian cancer and instrumental in organizing programs that brought women together. Donations will continue to advance ovarian cancer initiatives including awareness and education, quality of life and research in Kathy's memory.

"On Wednesday morning 11/25/20, Kathy Heck closed her eyes, drew her final breath and peacefully departed this life, trading in her well worn sails for well earned angel wings. She adjusted her sails for the last time toward her final destination.

Kathy was the beloved wife of Eric Heck and spent a fantastic 35 + heart filling years together. While their story and her life was cut short by cancer, the chapters Kathy wrote were wonderful. She left this earth on her own terms; Kathy did not want to pass away on a 'TEAL Tuesdays for KATHY' as that day represented living life and living with cancer; and did not pass away on a holiday, casting sadness on an otherwise joyfilled day. She managed to do neither of those two things, passing away instead on a Wednesday, one day after Teal Tuesday and one day prior to Thanksgiving.

Remember me with each cup of tea and when the winds of worry arise. Remember me with each sail you adjust and when you and I were us. Remember that your storms to will pass, for they never do last, so adjust sails, live life and remember me. ♥️⛵️⚓️🦋

Services for Kathy will be held At Mother, Mary of the Redeemer RC Church in Montogomeryville, PA on Saturday Dec, 12th with a Public Calling at 9:30 followed by Funeral Mass at 11:00. Public Burial services will follow Mass. Wearing a little Teal to this service would be a welcomed sight. In the Spring we will celebrate Kathy’s life at a date and place to be announced.

(Donations may also be mailed to the NOCC Delaware Valley Chapter, PO Box 631, Holicong, PA 18928).
