Her nickname growing up was “Little Mother” but if you ask some of her siblings, they will tell you it was really “Bossy Mary.” She graduated from St. Agnes Academy in Houston.

She loved Saturday evening dances, traveling, making pie crusts, dewberry jelly and peach preserves, fudge, fried chicken, cheese straws, Grandmother’s dressing, piddling with her plants, pancake breakfasts after 8:00 am Mass every Sunday morning, with those special “Mickey Mouse” pancakes, praying the rosary every night with Bob before they went to bed, but most of all, being the best “Little Mother” to her brood.
