Dorothy Heinz, 81 died on Wednesday, April 15, 2015 at St. Charles Medical Center in Bend.  

A Graveside service will be held on Friday, April 24, 2015 in the Burns Cemetery at 1:00 p.m.

Dorothy L. Heinz, 81, passed away April 15, surrounded by her family and friends.

She was born Jan. 6, 1934, in Prairie City to Dolly and Nellie Williams. She grew up in Brogan, occasionally living in other places when she followed her dad, as he worked for the State Highway Department.

She married Don Heinz in November 1954. The couple had two sons, and were married for 53 years, until 2007, when Don passed away. She lived in the Burns/Hines community, and she worked for most of the years she spent here at US Bank, until she retired and worked part-time at Ebar Oil.

She was devoted to her family, rarely missing any events that her sons were involved with. Later, she did the same with her grandchildren and took great pride in all their accomplishments.

She never knew a person who she would not help out in some way. She loved to knit, read, and work in her yard, taking great joy in her flower gardens. She especially had a passion for hummingbirds, keeping her feeders full in the summer months.

She is survived by two sons, Dave and Dan (Bonnie) Heinz; grandchildren, Nick (Amanda), Cara, Ali, Taylor, Drew and Casey; and great-grandchildren, Amia, Aleah, Desiree, and Lexi.

She was preceded in death by her parents, Dolly and Nellie; brother, Darrell; sister, Beth Ann; and husband, Don.

In lieu of flowers, donations in her memory may be made to the Harney County Special Olympics, in care of LaFollette’s Chapel, PO Box 488, Burns, OR 97720.
