Addison Renae Heine was born into the waiting arms of angels on Thursday, Aug. 16, 2012. She is the infant daughter of Michael Craig and Gina Renae (Duwe) Heine, of Janesville. She ascended into Heaven at St. Mary's Janesville Hospital.
While Addison gave her parents-to-be eight months of prenatal joy, she also gave them what will be a lifetime of love and cherished memories.
Addison is survived by her parents; grandparents, Robert and Yvonne Duwe of Wausau, WI, and Richard and Karen Heine of Delavan, WI; great-grandparents Rudy and Emily Schleif of Merrill, WI, and Willard and Charlotte Kuehn of West Allis, WI; aunts and uncles Lisa (Duwe) and Ryan Dwelly of North St. Paul, MN, and Katie (Heine) and Corey Hendrickson of Broken Arrow, OK; cousins Garrett and Taylor Hendrickson; and many other extended family members.
Addison was preceded in death by her great-grandparents Fred and Ramona Duwe and Elmer and Rocelia Heine.
A private service was officiated by Rev. Robert P. Rickman of Delavan's Our Redeemer Lutheran Church before laying her to eternal rest at Berlin Cemetery near the Duwe Family home in rural Wausau, WI. Schneider Apfel Schneider & Schneider Funeral Home, Janesville, assisted the family.
Special thanks to Dr. Kristin Miller, all of the OB nurses and support staff at St. Mary's Janesville Hospital for their caring, compassion, love and support through this difficult time of ours.
No farewell words were spoken, no time to say good-bye. You were gone before we knew it, and only God knows why.
"Therefore, since we have been justified through faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have gained access by faith into this grace in which we now stand. And we rejoice in the hope of the glory of God. Not only so, but we also rejoice in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character; and character, hope. And hope does not disappoint us, because God has poured out his love into our hearts by the Holy Spirit, whom he has given us." (Romans 5:1-5)
