In Loving Memory of Ginny Heckel

Ginny Heckel, a beloved wife, mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother, whose heart beat to the rhythm of her family's love, has passed away at the age of 91. She left this world on September 12th but leaves a legacy of love and devotion that will forever reside in our hearts.

Ginny was the epitome of unconditional love. Born on July 29th, she grew up in Denver, where she learned that family was not only a bond but a lifeline of unwavering support and affection.

Her husband, children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren were the center of her universe. She nurtured not only bodies but also souls, shaping the character and values of generations to come.

Ginny's home was a sanctuary of love and togetherness, where Sunday dinners, holiday gatherings, and spontaneous hugs were the norm. Her cooking was legendary, and the aroma of her signature dishes especially her special macaroni and cheese will forever linger in our hearts, a comforting reminder of her love.

While Ginny's earthly journey has ended, her spirit lives on in the family she adored. Her legacy of love, kindness, and family devotion will continue to inspire and uplift us all. She is survived by her husband, Richard, her children, and their families, who will carry forward the torch of love she lit for us.

Ginny Heckel's life will be celebrated on 11:00 am Tuesday, September 26th at West Bowles Community Church followed by a commital service at Fort Logan National Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, the family kindly requests donations be made to the American Cancer Society, an organization that reflects Ginny's compassionate spirit.

Ginny Heckel's family was her whole world, and her love was our guiding light. May she rest in eternal peace, forever surrounded by the love that she so generously shared.

In loving memory,

The Heckel Family
