Ezilda Carneiro Lobo Heaton, 86, Passed away April 21, 2016 in American Fork, Utah. Born March 5, 1930 in Brazil to Licinio Carneiro Lobo and Maria Charneski. She was married to Lauro P. de Almeida with whom she had 6 children. She later was sealed to William R. Heaton in the Denver temple in 2002.
She adored her family and loved spending time with them. She had the capability of working in various fields, as the bookkeeper and sales representative for their own jewelry store, as a caregiver for the elderly and had a daycare out of her home before she finally retired. She also enjoyed the business side of things, investing and realty. All of the work she did and people she cared for was impeccable- she never cut corners and never took the easy way out. Naturally since she owned a jewelry store- jewelry and watches was one of her hobbies. Most importantly, she followed Christ's example by always helping someone in need. She will always be remembered for her empathy for others and selfless acts, especially for her children.
