Marjorie J. Hennessy Heil

Marjorie J. Hennessy Heil, loving mother and wife, died December 22, 2021 after a 37-year fight with breast cancer. She is survived by her husband of 57 years, Dr. John “Jack” Heil, sisters Virginia and Irene, brother Richard, daughters Joyce and Rose, son Brian, and nine grandchildren. Though she obtained a bachelor’s degree in psychology from Beloit College, her work and interests were varied and included: working as UW-FDL librarian; teaching computer science abroad at the University of United Arab Emirates; writing scripts for the UW-FDL Quiz Bowl programs. Examples of the organizations she enjoyed are: South Shore Chorale; Amateur Radio (KC9BEN); Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts; Astronomy Club; Young Astronauts; Mid-America Geographic. She loved contributing to the education and welfare of others and will be missed.

COVID-19 cancelled plans for a funeral. Cash memorials may be sent to Jack and Marjorie’s STEM Scholarship at the UWOSH-FDL Foundation.
