She met her husband Ron in 1954 and was married January 2, 1955. Upon his graduation in 1957 she was awarded a CalTech PhT degree (Putting Husband Through). Besides bearing two wonderful children, she donated much of her time to the Newport Beach Library and the University of California Irvine main library.

Mary eventually became President of the CALTAC Board of Trustees and served for two years.

On their first date in 1954, Ron took Mary for an airplane ride in a two place Cessna and she liked it! They have been flying together ever since and have owned three different airplanes. They flew on many long trips with a social flying club called Skylarks of Southern California and after each one Mary created a scrapbook 11x17x3 inches thick full of photos, menus, and places visited.
