Heitzman, age 67, will be held at All Saint’s–St. Mary’s, Holdingford on Monday, December 11, 2023, at 10:00.  Visitation will be Sunday, December 10, 2023, from 4:00-7:00 at the church, and one hour prior to the services.  Parish prayers will be at 4:00 and the Rosary by the Christian Mothers at 6:00.  Burial will be at the parish cemetery.  Mary peacefully passed away at her home on Thursday, December 7 after a long, courageous battle with cancer.

Mary was born on January 6, 1956, to Alfred and Eleanor (Solarz) Molus.  She graduated from Holdingford High School.  She married Gerald Heitzman on August 2, 1980, at Immaculate Conception Church, St. Anna.  The couple had four loving children.  Mary worked many years at Vision-Ease.  After the St. Cloud plant closed, she worked at Holdingford High School as a kitchen assistant.  She helped on the farm milking cows, hauling hay, and driving tractors until her sons got older.

Mary enjoyed the Friday night football games and boys’ and girls’ basketball games for the Holdingford Huskers.  She would buy her favorite students, in her lunch line, cookies some days, and her own children were jealous of them.  She enjoyed joking with the students and staff while she worked.  Mary loved playing cards and Trouble with her granddaughters.  She liked to watch game shows.  Mary loved making her family recipe coffee cake each holiday.  Every spring, Mary would buy a few flowers and vegetables to plant.  Most of the time, the first set would die so a second set needed to be purchased.

Mary is survived by her husband, Gerald, Avon; children Janelle (Matt) Loehlein, St. Joseph; Jeff (Emily), St. Joseph; and Eric, Avon; two grandchildren Julia and Isabella Loehlein; sisters Patti (Charlie) Berscheid, Avon; Brenda (Herb) Blonigen, Avon; and Sharon (Brian) Sand, (Albany).

She is preceded in death by her son Russell (August 27, 2020), parents Alfred and Eleanor (Solarz) Molus, and sister Shirley Molus.

The Mary Heitzman family would like to extend their gratitude to Knute Nelson Home Care and Hospice for their care and kindness over the last two months.
