Mary was born in a sod hut on a cattle ranch in west Texas during the depression. Her father was a pharmacist and her mother operated a hair salon.
She met her husband, Paul of 68 years in Richland Washington and moved to Colorado in 1953. While Colorado was the longest residence she moved to many other states as a housewife following her husbands career. Her career, after raising 4 children, included working in the Cherry Creek school system for over 10 years until she retired.
She was a talented baker but above all was an noted cook and seamstress.
Mary was a wife, a mother, a grandmother and a great grandmother who is survived by 4 children, 8 grandchildren and 4 great grandchildren.
She will be forever missed!
