Barbara Heil, 70, from White Bear Lake, Minnesota, died aboard Carnival Corp's, Costa Cruises' Costa Concordia along with her husband Gerald 'Jerry' Heil, 69, when the cruise ship grounded off the coast of Giglio, Italy on Friday the 13, January 13, 2012.

The captain of Concordia took the cruise ship too close to shore, it grounded on a reef, ripping a massive hole in the hull of the ship, leaving a huge rock embedded in the hull. Lower compartments began to flood, causing the ship to list severely.
