Plan Ahead

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 enabled us to discuss many things from a medical point of view.

"I highly recommend this funeral home and crematorium; when I had to make and pay for my brother’s arrangements across state lines, Evelyn Montonya, in particular, demonstrated both compassion and professionalism and made a very sad and difficult situation much easier. Many thanks."

"The unexpected passing of my husband was a very difficult and trying time for my boys and I. I had the good fortune of having Abel walk us thru this process. Working with him was such a weight off my shoulders. He was professional, so polite and helpful. The service was beautiful – never did I feel rushed or like just another customer. They gave me the time I needed and I appreciate that so much! Also Mr. Brooks took special care of my husband as he is a fellow mason. I would highly recommend working with Abel and North Dallas Funeral Home."

"As soon as the call was made to Mr. Wayne Baxter all of my brothers final needs were taken care of. They walked me through what to expect the timeline and even dealt with the cemetery and the grave diggers. I was a hot mess due to my brothers sudden and unexpected passing. The experience was seamless and made it easy for my brother’s friends and family to say their last goodbyes. They even had the size to accommodate such a large group that showed up . The package deals that they offered were cost-effective and didn’t break my bank account. They included extras and accommodations that other funeral homes charged extra for. All the staff was amazing including Mr. Don Dodd . I can not thank them enough for all their help."

Dear John,

It was such a nice pleasure to meet you, and what you had planned for my father just took my breath away. It was so special to hear you tell us how he would just come over to talk with you. I think it brought him much comfort. Tha you for putting that Air Force article of him on your website. I am going to have a replica made of the painting of his plane to give you.

Thank you again for all you have done to honor our dad.

Love, The Gillilands
