Margot Heffernan of Delhi, NY passed away Friday, July 9 of natural causes at the age of 88. Born in Staten Island, New York, she graduated from Morristown High School in New Jersey and earned a bachelor’s degree in business from Ursuline College in Ohio. Margot and her husband Patrick raised their three children in Lyndhurst, Ohio. She was a devoted homemaker and mother and worked for National City Bank, now PNC Bank, first as a door-to-door customer service representative welcoming families moving to the area and then as a branch secretary. On Pat’s retirement, the couple moved to Walden in Aurora, Ohio. In recent years, after moving to the Delhi, NY area to be near her daughter, Margot resided at the Plains in Oneonta and Delhi Rehabilitation and Nursing Center. Margot loved her husband and family above all. Her other loves and pastimes included playing bridge, playing tennis as Pat’s partner, travel with him in later years, and especially their pet dogs, Marty, Sandy and Jenna. After Patrick passed in 2002, Margot volunteered locally with children’s literacy organizations and with Help Foundation of Cleveland, which serves the developmentally disabled. She was a devout Roman Catholic throughout her life and sang in the choir of the Church of the Holy Angels in Bainbridge Twp., Ohio. In New York, Margot attended St. James Episcopal Church, Lake Delaware, where her son-in-law James Krueger was a priest.
