Obituary For Wilhelmina M Heath
Wilhelmina “Willy” M. (Ogasian) Heath, 87, passed away peacefully on January 6, 2023, in Lynn, MA.
Wilhelmina was born in Lynn in 1935 to John and Mae (Goad) Gilchrist. She graduated from Lynn English High School in 1952 and then Burdett Secretarial School in 1953. Although Willy held several exciting jobs over the years while raising her family, her most treasured job was her over 20-year career at Massachusetts Eye and Ear Infirmary in Boston, where she stayed until retiring in 1997.
Wilhelmina devoted her life to her family as a loving wife, mother, and grandmother. Her greatest joy was her family, and she found great happiness sharing her passions for baking and gardening with her children and grandchildren.
For several years, Wilhelmina also showed her devotion to her hometown by joining the Lynn Assembly of the Order of Eastern Star. While an active member, she was responsible for numerous community visits and fundraisers. Wilhelmina was known to friends and family alike for her sparkling spirit, great sense of humor, and care for others.
Wilhelmina is survived by her two children, Johanna (Ogasian) and her husband Robert Morse, John Ogasian and his wife Diane (O’Grady); and three grandchildren, Sam Morse; Sarah (Morse) and her husband Ben Green; and Jennifer Ogasian. She was preceded in death by her parents John and Mae (Goad) Gilchrist; and her husband’s John Ogasian (father of her children) and Olin Heath.
