Obituary for Mary Barker "Happy-Do" Heston

Mary Elsie Barker Heston (Happy-Do), 99, passed away peacefully at her home Thursday, November 1, 2018. Born February 19, 1919, she was a lifelong resident of Jacksonville, FL and graduated from Landon High School in 1937. Mary Barker married Linden Heston on June 15, 1940 and he was the light of her life for 47 years.

Happy Do has 13 grandchildren, 26 great-grandchildren and 6 great-great-grandchildren.
Happy-Do taught us how to live by her example! She lived one day at a time and her life was full of love, joy and determination. Her door was open to anyone who needed a hug, or a listening ear and the candy dishes were always full.
