Mary was born in St. Louis, lived in Milwaukee for many years, and returned to be near family in St. Louis. The past four years she resided at Laclede Groves. Mary graduated from St. Elizabeth Academy. Mary lived life to the fullest with zest and treasured her time with family and friends, especially time spent at "the farm." Mary was a Master Gardener and provided over 20 years of dedicated service to the Missouri Botanical Garden Horticultural Answering Service. She also volunteered at the Campbell House Museum. In her younger years, she enjoyed traveling, biking, and crafting. Mary will be remembered best as a loving wife, mother, and grandmother.
