Catherine Moran Heckman
Died peacefully at home on February 5, 2002 with her adoring family by her side. Cherished wife of Dale Heckman; loving daughter-in-law of Neva Heckman; beloved mother of Marie Rose Prince and Frank Romaggi Prince IV; dear sister of Margaret Pasquini (Richard), Theresa Eisenberg (George) and Thomas Moran (Pamela); proud aunt of Sarah and Vincent Pasquini and Lizzy and Maggie Eisenberg; also survived by her loyal friend Pat Cornell.
A third generation Californian and second generation native San Franciscan, Cathie was raised in San Francisco and San Rafael. She loved her family, summers on the Russian River, cooking, gardening and antique hunting. For 25 years Cathie was devoted to her work with the U.S. Postal Service. She was known for her compassion for and generosity to anyone in need. Cathie will be sadly missed by many loving relatives and friends.
At Cathie's request, services will be private and a larger family gathering to celebrate her life will take place at a later date. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to a charity of your choice or Hospice of Petaluma, 416 Payran Street, Petaluma, CA 94952.
