The entire Public Interest Law Center community expresses its deep sadness at the untimely death of Judge Marilyn Heffley.
Judge Heffley was a treasured board member of the Law Center for nearly 15 years, serving from 1997 until 2012. She was everything a non-profit board member should be: reliable, active and generous. Those of us who had the pleasure to work with her over those years remember her unfailing warmth and good cheer. She worked hard, too, raising funds to support the Law Center’s mission, most notably helping to make its 25th anniversary celebration a success; as well as serving on its governance and nominations committees. We will miss her.
We send our deepest condolences to her family, friends and loved ones and join the entire Philadelphia legal community in mourning her loss. Judge Heffley will be laid to rest on Wednesday July 27, 2022 and her memorial service information can be found here.
