Mary was born in Norquay, Saskatchewan on April 21, 1945. Her family moved to Alberta in 1954 to the Heber Anderson farm near Barnwell. Mary received her schooling in Barnwell. She worked in the beet fields, eventually finding jobs in Taber. Mary went to hairdressing school in Lethbridge and cut hair for friends. She then work at the Taber hospital in the laundry department until completing her training as a personal care aid at Linden View. In May of 2013, Mary had a stroke that affected her left side, from which she never recovered. This resulted in her having to live at Linden View where she once worked. Mary will be lovingly remembered and dearly missed by those that knew her.
