Obituary for Mary "Sue" "Sue" Heintz (Williams)
Mary “Sue” Heintz, 70, of Kenosha, passed away peacefully on Tuesday, October 3, 2017, at Aurora St. Luke’s Medical Center in Milwaukee.
Born in Wausau, WI, on August 24, 1947, she was the daughter of the late James and Gertrude (Kujawski) Williams and she graduated from Merrill Senior High in 1965.
On June 25, 1966, she married Larry Heintz in Merrill, WI, and they soon after moved to Kenosha, WI.
Sue was employed at Piggly Wiggly since 1977 where she could be found working behind the customer service desk until her retirement. She was also the secretary of her husband’s company, LEH Trucking for over 30 years, as well as part owner of M&L Trucking. She was a valued player in Kenosha’s first woman’s fast pitch softball league for several different teams including; Oatsvall Transmission, Dick and Gloria’s Bar, and George’s Club Highview. In her leisure time, she enjoyed gardening, canning and baking. But most of all, Sue loved a good jigsaw puzzle, especially with a little help from her cat, Tommy, sprawled across the table, content to just lay by her as she patiently assembled the pieces around him.
Surviving her is her husband, Larry Heintz of Kenosha; her two daughters, Tammy Heintz and Barbie Clarke, both of Kenosha; a sister, Betty (Carl) Uttech of Merrill, WI; and two grandchildren, Arianne Clarke and Tucker Clarke.
She was preceded in death by a son, Timothy Heintz, and ten of her siblings, Ruth Stadler, Grace Beilke, Helen Banz, Harold, Ralph, Fred, William, Arthur, Henry, and Richard Williams.
A memorial service for Sue will be held on Wednesday, October 11th. Please contact the family for further information.
