Marjorie Ann Hesz (nee Henshaw) died peacefully on April 30, 2017, in Loveland, Colorado. She was a 2.5 year stoke survivor. Marj was born on October 11, 1927, in Detroit, Michigan to Trescott and Mildred Henshaw of Birmingham. She spent her childhood there and graduated from Albion College (MI) with a chemistry major. She married Walter Hesz, also of Birmingham, in 1949. She is survived by Walt; her sister, Elizabeth Duncan (Washington, NC); four children, Susan (Tony) McColl of Loveland, CO; Nancy Hesz (Gary Dixon) of Yellow Springs, OH; John (Sidney) Hesz of Winters, CA; Cathy (Rob) Colten of Wheaton, IL.

She was preceded in death by her parents; her aunt, Myrtle Pratt (Mamie); and her grandson, Nathan Gray. As newlyweds Marj and Walt moved to Salt Lake City, UT where she worked at Primary Children's Hospital. Jobs and raising a family took them to New Albany, IN and Glen Ellyn, IL. Marj worked part-time as a medical lab technician at the Elmhurst Clinic (IL). In retirement, they moved to Eureka, MO; Estes Park, CO; then Loveland. Marj loved the beauty of the mountains and the accessibility of gorgeous hikes. She appreciated the diversity of wildflowers and birds. She was always very industrious and kept busy with knitting, sewing, quilting, baking, cooking, playing bridge, swimming and reading. For many years, Marj was treasurer and quartermaster of the Mary Martha Circle at the Presbyterian Community Church of the Rockies in Estes Park. This group continues its work and uses donations to purchase yarn and fabric to make children's sweaters, hats, mittens, blankets, and infant layettes to donate to different charities. Memorial Service will be held Sunday, June 4, 2017, 2:00 p.m., followed by reception at Presbyterian Community Church of the Rockies in Estes Park, Colorado.
