Mary and husband Bill moved to Dallas in 1970 where she worked as a nurse for many years. In 1991, she moved to Hideaway Lake near Tyler, where she lived until 2003 when she moved to Midlothian. While living in the Tyler area, Mary served as a Courtesy Officer and staff member for five years at the Smith County courthouse where she stood on the courthouse steps each morning and greeted the city with “Welcome to Tyler. What’s your dream?”

Mary had a zest for life and enjoyed traveling and meeting new people. She will be remembered for her wonderful sense of humor, her love for old movies, music, singing and her innate ability to tell stories from the past.

Mary was a very proud OU mom. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions can be made to the University of Oklahoma Foundation.
