Obituary

HAWTHORNE – Miss Gail M. Heckman 59, of Hawthorne died peacefully Saturday, May 12, 2018 at Beverly Hospital surrounded by her loving family.

Born in Beverly, she was the daughter of June Mary (Page) Heckman and the late William Richard Heckman. Gail has been a resident of the Hogan Regional Center for over 50 years.

A loving and peaceful woman, Gail has a deep passion and love for music especially her favorite The Beatles. With a gregarious personality, she endeared herself to whomever she met. She was a true people person and loved being around others. Through all of Gail's limitations she always found a way to connect to others. She was one of the longest residents at the Hogan and thus made many lifelong friends over the years. She was a special person who battled many illnesses throughout the course of her life but always seemed to bounce back and enjoy her music and her family, friends and care givers.

Gail is survived by her mother, June Mary (Page) Heckman of Beverly, her siblings, Elaine Jalbert of Beverly, William Heckman and his wife Carole of Peabody and Wayne Heckman and his wife Tammy of Peabody and many nieces, nephews and extended family including her family at the Hogan Regional Center who took care of her day in and day out and Gail's family is forever grateful for their kindness. By their kindness they gave Gail dignity and a full life.
