Mary E. Heintz, 70, of Englewood, Fla., passed away peacefully, Wednesday, Sept. 11, 2013, in Venice, Fla., with Elvis Presley music in the background and her children by her side.
She was born Aug. 27, 1943, in New York City, N.Y., to Arthur and Cecelia Muller.
Mary moved to Englewood 30 years ago, and has been an asset to the community ever since. She was one of the strongest, hardest-working and most caring women most have ever known. During her working career, she was a jack of all trades. While most of her time was spent doing bookkeeping and accounting, she was also a certified paralegal, medical filer, Create-A-Book distributor, eBay top seller, craft guru, and owned a landscaping business. Throughout her life, she has always contributed to the community by volunteering at a variety of organizations. Mary was always willing to lend a helping hand to anyone who needed it. She ensured local families received assistance throughout the year, by providing dinners, gifts, clothing or any other necessary items. Mary will forever be remembered for her strength, kind heart and selflessness.
She is survived by her son, John; her daughter, Suellen; her sisters, Ceil and Carol; her brothers, Artie, Jimmy and Johnny; and a community of close friends. Not a day will pass where she won’t be remembered and missed.
A Celebration of Mary’s life will be held at from noon until 2 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 28, 2013, at Englewoods on Dearborn, 362 W. Dearborn St, Englewood. Friends of Mary and all members of the community who have been touched by her are more than welcome to celebrate with us on this special occasion.
Arrangements are by Alan Moore Funeral Homes and Cremation.
