Mary Theresa Beston

April 18, 1939 – Feb. 22, 2013
Mary Theresa Beston, 73, was granted her angel wings on Feb. 22. She was born on April 18, 1939 in Denver, CO., to Owen and Olga McAndrews. Mary moved to Vallejo, CA., in 1958 with her husband, Robert Beston and made their home. Her final days were spent surrounded by her family whom she had touched in many ways throughout her very memorable life.
Mary was an incredible wife, mother, grandmother and friend to many. She enjoyed cooking, going shopping at the flea market, casinos and most of all spending time with her family. In her earlier years, Mary was a member of her children's PTA and a leader to her daughter's campfire girls. Her gentle smile, warm embrace and fun and feisty nature brought so much joy to her family and kept them on their toes. She gave those around her such courage and hope, and reminded them of how precious life is.
Mary leaves to cherish her memory, her son, Robert Beston Jr. of Vallejo, CA.; daughters, Laura and Randy Fox of Vallejo, CA., and Gina and Frank Marks of Orangevale, Ca.; grandchildren, Jennifer Beston of Fairfield, CA., Ashley Fox of Vallejo, CA., Robert Beston III of Vallejo, CA., Tony Marks of Sacramento, CA., and Frankie Marks of Orangevale, CA.; great-grandchildren, Alex and Adrian DeLeon of Fairfield, CA.; and her siblings, Patricia Moran of La Mesa, CA., Daniel McAndrews of Denver, CO., and Karen of Libya.
Mary was preceded in death by her husband, Robert Edward Beston; her parents, Owen and Olga McAndrews; her sibilings, Betty Thorton, Linda Trujillo, Katy McAndrews and Michael McAndrews.
