Patricia Fay Hein Obituary
Patricia Fay Hein, 64, went to be with her lord and savior on Wednesday, April 25, 2012, at the University of Texas Health Center in San Antonio, Texas.
Patricia was born Nov. 13, 1947, in Ironwood, Mich., to Carlos C. and Mona (Johns) Stone.
She met the love of her life, Robert J. Hein, while attending Lakeshore Technical Institute in Manitowoc, Wis., where she earned her associate's degree in secretarial sciences. Robert was in the U.S. Air Force.
After serving two years in Tachikawa, Japan, the two were reunited and married on Aug. 30, 1969, at Sacred Heart Catholic Church in Manitowoc. Together they fully enjoyed the life of a military family, and with their daughters took advantage of every opportunity to explore new places and make new friends.
Patricia is survived by her loving husband of 43 years, Robert J. Hein, of the family home; three daughters, Robyn Cooper and husband, Kevin, of San Antonio, Texas, Roxanne Voigt and husband, Jonothan, of Alamogordo, and Tammy Sauld and husband, Edward, of Oshkosh, Wis.; granddaughter Riley Alexandra Cooper, of San Antonio; grandsons Harrison Wayne Voigt, Jackson Robert Voigt, Jameson Scott Voigt, of Alamogordo, and Ryne Russell Sauld, of Marinette, Wis.; great-granddaughter Rylynn Rae Sauld, of Florence, Wis.; sister Carol Flath, of Clear Lake, Wis.; brother David Stone and wife, Sandy, of El Paso; brother-in-law Thomas Klein, of Montgomery, Ala.; and many nieces and nephews.
She was preceded in death by her parents, Carlos C. and Mona Stone, and her sister Geraldine Kline.
Patricia worked for Alamogordo Public Schools for 21 years, holding several secretarial positions. First, at Alamogordo Mid-High as the attendance secretary, then as a data processor in the guidance department at Alamogordo High School. She finished her career as the secretary to the athletic director for Alamogordo Public Schools.
During her career, she was a member of the New Mexico Educational Office Personnel Association and served as president for approximately four years. She thoroughly enjoyed working and being a part of the mid-high and high school family. Her friendships ran deep and long, she enjoyed her job and shared a lot of laughs and good times with her friends and co-workers throughout the years.
In 2003, she was diagnosed with multiple myeloma, forcing her to retire. After going into remission in 2004, she would travel at every opportunity to see her grandchildren and visit family and friends. Recently, she began attending a multiple myeloma support group and served as a mentor.
Patricia enjoyed being a member of the Red Hat Society, painting, making clothes for her granddaughter - especially tutu's - and watching her grandson's countless sporting events.
Patricia was a loving wife, devoted mother and doting grandmother. Our family is forever grateful for all the love, care and guidance she has given us. Her grandchildren were the light of her life and she spoiled them with the love that only a grandmother could. She has touched many lives and her presence will be deeply missed by all who loved and knew her.
A memorial service will be held Friday, May 11, 2012, at St. Jude Parish at 4:30 p.m. An inurnment ceremony will follow at the St. Jude Columbarium. A reception will take place at the fellowship hall after the ceremony.
Should friends desire, in lieu of flowers, donations can be made to St. Jude Parish, Outreach Program, 1404 College Ave., Alamogordo, NM 88310.
