Aside from her work, Heinen’s other passion was her family. “Her family was her recreation,” said Ashton. “That was her chief hobby, doing things for them.”

She remained active with her nieces and nephews and their children and grandchildren. Velde said she was practically the personal nanny to her 5½-year-old grandson. “She just cherished him.”

Heinen was found to have advanced cancer in September. She decided against pursuing chemotherapy or radiation treatments and died at the Carondelet Village in St. Paul cared for by members of her order and surrounded by family. Services have been held.
