Heinz Kerry makes 1st public appearance since July

WASHINGTON — Teresa Heinz Kerry, the wife of Secretary of State John Kerry, made her first public appearance since suffering a seizure in July.

Heinz Kerry was seated in the row behind her husband as he testified Tuesday at a Senate hearing on Syria. The secretary of state and the chairman of the committee, Sen. Bob Menendez of New Jersey, both commented on her presence.

Heinz Kerry, 74, suffered a seizure at the couple’s Nantucket, Mass., home July 7. She was treated at a Nantucket hospital and another in Boston before being released three weeks later.

Heinz Kerry, an heir to the Heinz ketchup fortune, is the widow of former Sen. John Heinz, who was killed in a helicopter crash in 1991. She married Kerry, a former Massachusetts senator, in 1995.
