Freddy Heineken’s widow, Lucille Heineken-Cummins, passed away on Thursday at the age of 95. That reports The Telegraph.
Heineken-Cummins is the daughter of a Kentucky bourbon manufacturer and was a fashion model. She met her later husband in the United States in 1947 when he was still a “poor” beer delivery boy, she told NRC. In fact, Freddy was sales manager for Heineken in the United States, where not much beer was purchased from the Netherlands at the time. A year later, the two got married.
In 1983 Heineken-Cummins became known to the general public in the Netherlands when her husband was kidnapped. A group of criminals including Willem Holleeder and Cor van Hout kidnapped the then director of beer brewery Heineken and his driver Ab Doderer and tried to get a ransom. After twenty days the duo was released. Before that event and afterwards, Heineken-Cummins did not often come to the fore. It is known that she likes to ride horses near her villa in Noordwijk.
The couple had one daughter: Charlene de Carvalho-Heineken (1954). She is a major shareholder and director of Heineken Holding. Freddy Heineken died in 2002 at the age of 78.
