Kathleen Heimbecker

d. February 2, 2022

Kathleen Heimbecker (nee Donaghy), age 87, of Upper Darby, PA, formerly of Germantown, PA, passed away on February 2, 2022 having bravely battled dementia for over a decade. Born in Philadelphia, PA, she was the daughter of the late John and Catherine Donaghy (nee Kerlin).

Cass was a loving wife, mother and grandmother who will be missed profoundly. She was a graduate of the Immaculate Conception Business School and later worked at Rohm and Haas where she met Jerry, her husband of 54 years. With a tilt of the head and her infectious smile, she could light up a room. Cass loved to dance and embraced her Irish heritage.

Heimbecker, Kathleen Heimbecker, and the late Celine Heimbecker; loving grandmother of Meghan Burkins, James P. Heimbecker, Jr., Justin Heimbecker, Emily Heimbecker, G. Ryan Sablosky, Kyle P.
