Marilyn C. Heinzman

June 8, 2019

Marilyn C. Heinzman passed away peacefully at her home on Saturday, June 8, 2019. Born in Hildreth, NE to George and Grace Tjaden in 1938, she married Robert H. Heinzman in 1953 at Kearney, moving to Grand Island and settling in Lincoln in 1962. Born to Marilyn and Bob were six children: Roberta, Randy, David, Kathy, Kent and Russell. After Kathy's death in 1997, her two grandsons, Josh Breeden and Jay Gilmore were welcomed into the family's home.

Marilyn worked at a number of businesses in Lincoln, the longest being Square D where she retired in 1997 to raise her grandsons. She loved serving in church children ministries and was a constant companion and partner with her husband Bob for 66 years. Marilyn's life at times was difficult, but it developed in her character and compassion for anyone who was lost or alone. A life of caring and service endeared her to her family and friends. Her going home has left a void that will not be filled.

Marilyn was preceded in death by her parents, George and Grace Tjaden, her stepfather, Earl Anderson, sisters Romaine and Barbara, brother Wesley and daughter Kathy. She is survived by her husband, Robert, daughter Roberta, sons Randy, David, Kent, Russell, Josh and Jay, sister Teresa, brother Terry, 12 grandchildren, 11 great-grandchildren, and numerous cousins, nephews and nieces.

Services will be Thursday, June 13, 2019 at 11:00 AM at Messiah Lutheran Church (1800 S. 84th Street) in Lincoln. Interment will be at Lincoln Memorial Park on Thursday at 2:00 PM. The family will receive friends on Wednesday, June 12th from 4-8 PM at Lincoln Memorial Funeral Home. Online condolences may be left at www.lincolnfh.com
