She graduated from Northside High School in Atlanta, GA in 1957. Mary later obtained her combined degree of Lab & Xray Technician from College of Medical Technology in PA.

She took pride in her work as the secretary for the Hall County Sheriff’s Office from 1990 to 2001. Later in 2001, she moved to Columbus, Georgia to be closer to her daughters and grandchildren.
