Mary LaFlam Heyman

October 30, 1923March 21, 2020

Mary LaFlam Heyman, age 96, of Bradenton, Florida, passed away on Saturday, March 21, 2020. Mary was born on October 30, 1923, to Frank and Helen LaFlam in Burlington, Vermont. Mary was a student at Mt. St. Mary's High School, and attended Castleton Teachers College, in Vermont. She worked locally as a dedicated educator to many, even after starting a family of her own. Mary met her husband Edward in college, and they married in 1947. She was an amazing mother to seven children. When relocating to Bradenton, Florida, Mary made many new friends, as a member of Our Lady Queen of Martyrs Church and participating in the local Mall Walkers Club. She was a great baker and enjoyed knitting during her free time. Mary was so kind and patient, always making time for her friends and family; she always made sure everyone felt welcomed. Her love and generosity will be missed by many, and her optimistic outlook on life will be cherished. Mary was predeceased by her parents, Frank and Helen LaFlam, sisters Onaldean Fisher and Yvonne Johnson, her husband Edward F, son Marc, and her grandson Edward H. She is survived by her children, Michael D Heyman (Mary), Paul J Heyman (Melody), John F. Heyman, Kathleen M. Leuthauser, Julie A. Turpin, and Todd B. Heyman (Sandy). Mary is also survived by seven grandchildren, fourteen great-grandchildren, one great-great grandchild, and several nieces and nephews, whom she loved very much. In lieu of flowers, donations may be in memory to Tidewell Hospice, 3355 26th Street W. Bradenton, FL 34205.

A personal note from the family: We would like to express our gratitude to Hospice for their comfort and care of Mary and her family. Her family and mall walking friends will miss her dearly. Fondest memories and expressions of sympathy may be shared at for the Heyman family.
