Lucy Beall Candler Owens Heinz Leide

Lucy Beall Candler Owens Heinz Leide (1882-1962) was the only daughter of Coca-Cola co-founder Asa Griggs Candler.

In 1903, Lucy married her first husband William Davies Owens, who would become an assistant cashier (i.e. manager) at Central Bank and Trust, the bank that Asa Candler started in 1905. At first they lived together in her parents’ home, , at 61 Elizabeth Street in Inman Park. In 1910 they moved to a newly-built home in Druid Hills which would become known as "The Goose". It was located at what is now 1449 South Ponce de Leon Avenue. In 1968 the home would become the Mother Goose day care center, and later classroom space for The Paideia School until it burned down in 2009. William Owens died of influenza and a heart attack in the house in 1914.

Lucy then married Henry Heinz, capitalist, banker and president of Kiwanis International. Heinz was shot by a burglar at their home, Rainbow Terrace, in 1943. A black railroad worker confessed to the crime but rumours persisted that a relative murdered Heinz.

Lucy then married Enrico Leide (1887-1970), a concert cellist and orchestra conductor, conducting the first Atlanta Symphony Orchestra from 1920 to 1930. He was the brother of violinist and composer Manoah Leide-Tedesco.

Lucy died aboard the RMS Caronia in 1962.
