She was a long time member of North Salem Lutheran Church and current member of St. Paul Lutheran Church in Upper Sandusky, as well as a Girl Scout leader for many years.
Mary enjoyed gardening, canning and baking. She also enjoyed bowling back in the day.
Family was, by far, the most important aspect of her life. She especially loved spoiling her grandchildren.
