Lucille M. Heck, 90, of Nekoma, ND, passed away surrounded by family on Thursday, April 19, 2018, at Villa Maria in Fargo, ND.

Lucille Marion was born December 26, 1927, to Oscar and Loretta (Moen) Gronhovd. She attended school in Highland Township and graduated from Nekoma High School. On December 12, 1946, she married Robert Heck at Nekoma Lutheran Church in Nekoma. They lived in Perry Township and farmed Robert’s father’s land until 1950 when they moved in to Nekoma. Lucille worked various jobs in the Langdon area and as a clerk for the US Postal Service in Nekoma until September of 1992 when she retired.
