In Memory

We like to think of St. Pius X as a close-knit family, and it is good that we pray for members of our family who have gone before us to their heavenly home: 

Margarita Heisserer Obituary

A personal note from Rick and Norma Overberg, Class of 1966

Our “history” with Margarita Heisserer began in 1962 when we entered St. Pius X High School as freshmen.  Sr. Margarita was the Librarian, the music teacher, and she taught us music appreciation. To say that she was busy was a terrible understatement.  I remember her Christmas tableau productions, her hand in the school musicals, her involvement with the first Student Council during our sophomore year, her constant push to continue our education past high school, her unending energy and enthusiasm for anything St. Pius.

While we were in college, Sr. Margarita became the Principal of St. Pius.  She hired both of us to teach at St. Pius. Rick began in 1972; I began in 1974.  It was then we experienced her unique leadership in the field of education. She introduced the Modular Schedule to St. Pius and completed the complex schedule by hand each summer.  As lifetime educators, we learned to appreciate her visionary gifts for education and her tenacity to accomplish projects. Admittedly, she frequently drove her faculty “crazy” with more ideas, more projects, more tasks, but she was driven to keep St. Pius on the cutting edge.

When she left St. Pius, we lost touch.  Later, we found out that she worked on the academic team at Northeastern University when it transitioned to Truman State.  She worked with Dr. McClain who was the President. She had previously worked with him when he was the first President of Jefferson College.  We reconnected after her retirement from Truman when she moved to St. Peters, MO.

Since one of her gifts was long-range planning, she volunteered to lead the first long-range planning team at St. Pius X High School. She was also involved in North Central evaluations during her retirement.  Her love of St. Pius never diminished.

For ten years (2008-2018), we knew Margarita as a friend.  We had moved to Wentzville to teach at St. Dominic High School.  We visited with her; Rick did odd jobs for her; we celebrated our 50th Class Reunion with her (served as her chauffeur).  We had one last visit with her at the Sarah Community where she spent the end of her life. There is no doubt in our minds, that she has already begun some new heavenly program to coordinate all of the St. Pius alums and teachers who went before her.  Thanks, Margarita, for taking on the Pius Community as one of your visionary projects.
