Eileen R. Heintz
89, returned to her God and entered heaven on April 8, 2013. She was born in Syracuse, NY on July 17, 1923. She grew up in Whitesboro, NY and proudly served in the U.S. Navy as a Wave during WWII. She married Jack Heintz in 1946 and together reared four children. Eileen and Jack moved their family to Tucson in 1959. She was preceded in death by her natural mother, Kathleen Murphy; her adopted parents, Amos and Sue Rondeau; her brothers, Amos, Leonard and Lloyd Rondeau; her husband, Jack Heintz; her daughter, June Aubry and her grandson, Joe Dull. She is survived by children, Gary Heintz (Jeanne), Colleen Dull (Paul) and Jim Heintz (Susie); son-in-law, David Aubry; brother, Herb Rondeau and sister-in-law, Peg Rondeau. Also, God gifted Eileen with ten grandchildren and five great-grandchildren. Eileen was an administrative assistant at St. Joseph's Hospital when it first opened and volunteered at El Dorado Hospital during her retirement. She loved to read, solve crossword puzzles, play video poker and never missed a day praying her rosary or doing her "Navy Exercises." Her optimism, curiosity and kindness will continue to inspire us all.
