Heidemarie R. Mallory

July 5, 1942 ~ April 6, 2022 (age 79)


Heidemarie R. Mallory was a loving wife, mother, grandmother, sister, aunt, and friend. She passed away peacefully on April 6, 2022, at the age of 79. A Graveside service is planned for 11:00 AM Wednesday April 13, 2022, at the Central Texas State Veterans Cemetery.

Heidemarie was born to August Karl Dzwonkowski and Emilie Auguste Wilke on July 5, 1942, in Berlin, Germany. She was in love with J.C. Mallory the moment they met, and she married him on May 16, 1963. Heide was a devoted wife, mother, and grandmother. She valued her family and always enjoyed spending time with her grandchildren. Heidi was one of the few kindhearted souls who had the ability to make her loved ones feel like the center of attention. Her life revolved around them in those moments.  She showered her loved ones with affection, and they adored her for it.

She was a true optimist! Even when she went through difficult times, Heide never complained. She had such a big heart that she could make anyone around her feel important. She was easy to talk to or confide in because you knew she listened and provided the encouragement you needed to keep going. She had the unique ability to show you she always cared about you and placed your needs above hers. Whenever you spent time with her you would always feel special. That was Heide’s gift!

She enjoyed reading, cooking, playing games, and spending time with her beloved dog Chico. Heidi shared her love of cooking by teaching others how to make some of her most prized recipes. Heidi was an accomplished cook, so this was a true treasure! She used her gift of cooking to show her love for those near and dear to her by serving food for the soul.

Heidi also had a witty side. She could crack jokes or make the funniest expressions that would make a person’s side hurt from laughter.  Just like the old saying “He is a man’s man”, everything about Heidemarie made her a “Woman’s woman”.  She was your confidant, a mother figure, your friend, partner in crime and therapist at her kitchen table. She was what every woman needs in their life. Even in the worst situations she always managed to brighten the mood and make others laugh.  This was a testimony to just how selfless she was and how much she cared for others.  Her goal in life was always to lift peoples’ spirits and make their day better.

Heidi loved deeply and selflessly.  To be loved by her meant that she would always be there when you needed her.  She will be missed by all that knew her         Heidemarie was preceded in death by her parents August and Emilie Dzwonkowski; and her brother, Horst Dzwonkowski. She is survived by her husband, J.C. Mallory; daughter, Theresa Carter (Willie Carter); son Mark Mallory (Kelli Jones); grandchildren, LaVonny, Valenta, LaRod, Clarissa, Arrianna, Kaila, Emmalise and Mark Mallory II; great grandchild, Bellamy and her sister, Lilo Stevens.
