On March 12, 2014, our dear Vesna Heinze passed away at the John Muir Hospital in Walnut Creek, CA, at the young age of 46. Beloved Wife of Matthias Heinze and cherished mother to 5 children, Hannah (25), Heike (23), Helena (15), Heidi (13), Hristina (9), sister to her brother Srdja and sister Mira. Her incomparable smile is greatly missed by all that were blessed to have known her.
The funeral service was held on Wednesday the 19th in Oakland at the Ascension Greek Orthodox Cathedral. We thank all those that honored her and our family by attending and communicating their condolences by letter or Email.
On April 21 Vesna’s traditional 40 day service of her ascension to the heavens was held in the Ascencion Cathedral in Oakland. We thank farther Tom for his kind words and beautiful ceremony.
Her grave is located in Germany next to her father in law she loved so much, in the shadow of trees, a stones throw from the “sleep house” she loved so much. The grave is tended to by her mother law, with loving hands. Every once in a while it is watered by our tears of sorrow. She never left Europe and never will. Her home in Montenegro is but a days drive away.
Good bye my love, travel safely.
