Ann (Annie) Jennifer DeMary passed away surrounded by loving family and friends on Tuesday, October 23, 2018 after a long and courageous battle with multiple myeloma. Annie was born on September 30, 1957 in Seattle, Washington to Dr. Milo Lawrence Heideman, Jr. and Edith Markus Heideman.
After residing in numerous states with her family, she settled in Texas, which she absolutely loved. While living in Houston, in 1985 she met and fell in love with the love of her life, Hank DeMary. They married in 1987 and over the next 31 years, they created a wonderful life together. They started a successful auto collision business in Houston that spanned over 17 years. After cultivating life-long relationships and friendships, they decided to move to Galveston in 2006 to be closer to family.
While living in Galveston, Annie volunteered for the Humane Society because she was a life-long lover of animals and made several rescue pets part of her family. Her love of exercise and yoga, her participation in Bible Study, along with her volunteer activities, made her many friends who cherished her thoughtful and generous spirit. In the past two years, she was also employed as an administrator at Edward Jones.
Annie is survived by her husband, Hank, sister Claire Heideman, brother Bruce Heideman, sister Lila Heideman and brother-in- law Bob Licht, nieces Sarah Licht and Rebecca Licht and her husband, Dan Costanza, sister-in-law Diane Laine, brother-in-law Randall Laine, Jr, nephews Randall and Kelly Laine, brother-in-law Patrick DeMary, and pets Belle, Bosco, Gray, and Bebe.
Ann was preceded in death by her parents and brother-in-law Kevin DeMary.
