Heusinkveld, Frances G.


Frances G. Heusinkveld went to be with her Lord and Savior on June 5, 2021 at the age of 89.  A loving wife, mother, grandmother and great grandmother, her family came first always.

She is survived by her daughter Lu Ann Blough and son, John Heusinkveld (fiancé Tracy) . She is also survived by grandchildren Matt Blough (Bailey), Daniel Blough (Kascie), David Blough (Melissa), Collin Heusinkveld (Maddi), Jordan Heusinkveld and Kathryn Rogers (Zach).   Fran loved her great grandchildren, Leah Blough, Nora Rogers and Kylie and Stetson Heusinkveld.

She married her high school sweetheart, Bob Heusinkveld, and was married for 58 years.  Fran was an avid bridge player and didn’t come in second too many times.  She enjoyed acting as a hostess, volunteering and attending family gatherings. She volunteered at Medical City Dallas for over twenty years and at Plano Presbyterian Hospital for 3.  She loved her friends dearly and was often found lending a listening ear or giving medical advice to those in need.

Fran was a member and elder of Preston Hollow Presbyterian church in Dallas where she served as an usher for many years.

Your Mom was such a special person and one of my dearest friends for decades.
I’m so grateful that we were able to get together for lunch at Lavendou just days prior to her passing. I consider that a special blessing.
We had so many enjoyable times at the bridge table.
For years we had a special nickname for each other “My Little Leprechaun “, we really liked to baffle other people with it. Sometimes we’d explain it and other times we’d just leave them guessing.
It came of course from Colin saying he knew what gay ladies were called… Leprechauns. I think he was about 5 at the time he said it.
Then there were the many summers that Fran came and stayed with me at my Maui condo.She really enjoyed sitting on the lanai and reading or just relaxing,watching the ocean while I was out scuba diving.
We would eat dinner out every night at some wonderful restaurant with a spectacular ocean view.
After I sold my condo in 2014,we had one last trip back and stayed at her favorite hotel,Kea Lani,in a lovely suite with her as hostess..
It was a little bittersweet for us as we knew it would be the last time.
Over the last few years,we enjoyed going to lunch and Fran playing bridge with me when I needed a sub..
There are few “really special” friends we are blessed with in this life. She was one of mine and is sorely missed!
God bless you My Little Leprechaun…

I have to add to my previous comments that there was another thing that Fran and I had in common and that was that we were both nurses. It gave us another area that we were bonded by.it enabled us to discuss many things from a medical point of view.
