The Heritage Legacy Fund Shares Sophie's Story

Heritage Community of Kalamazoo Foundation

Heritage Community Foundation is proud to share Sophie's story, a touching, personal account of the lives that have been affected by our generous donors. Sophie's story began in 1999 when she and her husband, Robert, moved to Heritage Community. Quickly making friends, socializing and tending to the general store, Sophie was an integral, much-loved member of the community. Family members recall her selfless spirit, telling of how she once jumped headlong to catch a friend in distress. Throughout her life, the staff in the community grew overwhelmingly fond of her, creating a personal connection that left an impression with her children, Charlie, Colleen and Kathleen.

We're extremely grateful to the Fitzsimmons family for sharing their story, and The Image Group for their creative production of the video.
