Mary Lee was very active at Concordia Lutheran Church, serving as a Sunday school teacher, the Ladies Aid, the choir and regularly attended Bible study. She was trained as an instructor in the Bethel Bible series, but due to religious beliefs, she did not teach. For several years she and Bill were janitors at the church.

They traveled to Panama City and Fort Myers, Fl. to expand their fishing holes. She was a strong supporter of Sikeston Babe Ruth baseball. Mary Lee worked very few jobs in her life. She started as a cashier in the concession station at the Sikeston Drive-In. She worked briefly at the Rex Theater as a ticket catcher. She went to work for Sears & Roebuck in 1958. She worked there for thirty-four years, starting as a telephone solicitor; she worked her way up to store manager. She and Bill purchased the store and operated as a Sears Authorized Merchant until their retirement in 1992.
