Mary Naomi Hess, 75, of Holiday, FL. passed away peacefully in her sleep on February 7, 2023. Mary was born on April 14, 1947 to Jesse and Opal Lones in Cleveland, TN. Mary spent most of her working years as a concrete block dispatcher. Mary was predeceased by her parents, Jesse and Opal Lones, brother, Roger Lones, and sister, Brenda Sue Bristol.

Mary did not want a service. She was a fun, kind, and loving woman that loved her family BIG! God saw you getting tired, and a cure was not to be. So he put his arms around you and whispered “come with me”. With tearful eyes, I watched you and saw you pass away, although I loved you dearly I knew you couldn’t stay. A golden heart stopped beating, hard-working hands at rest. God broke our hearts to prove to us, He only takes the best.
