Stacia Mary Van Heuklon, 62, of Rochester, Minnesota passed away on May 9, 2023 at her home, surrounded by family.

Stacia Mary (DeMass) Van Heuklon was born on May 10, 1960, to Robert and Felicia DeMass in Gary, Indiana. Stacia graduated from Andrean High School and went on to attend Mount Mary College in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, where she achieved her Bachelor of Arts degree. She married Jeff Van Heuklon on June 4, 1982, and together they moved to Rochester.

Stacia was a faithful member of the Pax Christi Catholic Church and active at St. Pius Elementary School while her children attended. She enjoyed investing in the stock market and playing volleyball. She also enjoyed driving her red Porsche convertible and attending concerts with her husband Jeff (Grateful Dead, being the first). She was very close to her family and especially liked spending time with her grandchildren, who affectionately called her "Nene". She was an avid football fan, and loved the Chicago Bears and Notre Dame Fighting Irish.

She is survived by her husband, Jeff Van Heuklon; her children, Aaron (Brie) Van Heuklon, Meghan (Erich) Fisher, Lauren (Justin) Welsh, and Andrew (Mikayla) Van Heuklon; mother, Felicia DeMass; brothers, Tom (Margaret) DeMass and Jim (Alisa) DeMass; sisters, Regina (Mike) Ricker and Simone DeMass; and ten grandchildren, Ella, Avery, Ryan, Leo, Norah, Jake, Henry, Collin, Camden, and Paige.

She was preceded in death by her father, Robert DeMass.

Our deepest sympathies to all of Stacy's family. We send you our love and prayers as we also mourn our dear friend, Stacy. Oh, how she is missed! We think of our decades of friendship with her and are grateful, although we'd hoped for time together since our move back to WI. Stacy was a truly loving, supportive, caring, strong, generous woman who brought her family and friends joy and laughter. She was an amazing Wife and Mother. The memories of times shared with her are cherished. She was kind in ways we'll never forget. Always led by faith and prayer throughout her life, we know she is safely in Heaven for all eternity. Thank you, Stacy, for blessing us witb your love. May you also know how very loved you are.
The Dancker Family

We are so sorry to hear of Stacia’s passing. She cared for our boys over the span of seven years and they still mention the hot dog octopuses she would make them for lunch! She was a wonderful person who cared deeply for her family. All of you will be in our prayers in the days and months ahead.

The Queen has passed… Words cannot describe my feelings of loss and love for Stacy and all of her family.
May God continue to hold you and comfort you knowing she is with our Lord maybe playing volleyball, driving HER car or checking the stock market. She is now a guardian angel for each of you.
Hugs, prayers and love, Auntie Cheryl Lee
