Peggy Joy Ritter Heck went home to her Lord and Savior January 9, 2021.
She is reunited with her loving husband of 61 years, Eldon C. Heck, her parents Eugene & Elizabeth Ritter, and her sister Gloria Davey.
Remembering her in faith and love are her children Nancy, Brian (Marie), Irene Organ (Walter) and Ellen.; grandchildren Jamie Heston, Mark (Kelly), Kristen Pepe (Joseph), Nathan (Kara), Celeste West (John) and Thomas; great-grandchildren Tyler, Carissa, Jude, Emersyn, Lucas, Florence and Matthew and a host of other family members and friends.
Peggy was a native of New Orleans, resided most of her life in Arabi, and after hurricane Katrina relocated to Ponchatoula.
A devoted Christian, Peggy’s faith was extremely important to her. Her church families included St. Matthew’s (New Orleans), Gethsemane Lutheran (Chalmette) and St. Paul Lutheran (Hammond).
Due to pandemic restrictions, services will be private. In lieu of flowers, please make donations to St. Paul Lutheran Church, Hammond.
