Mary Andrews Bargeman was born on April 6, 1927, in Cameron, Louisiana to the late James and Edith Andrews. She was one of eight children born to their unification. She was united in matrimony to Raphael Bargeman in 1949. To that union they were blessed with a daughter, Gilda โ€œBeattyโ€ Bargeman, who preceded her in death and adopted daughter Mary Ruth Andrews.

Mary accepted Christ and was baptized at an early age. She was a very devoted and faithful member of the Bargeman Memorial Church of God in Christ, in Cameron, Louisiana. She served on the finance and hospitality committees for many years. After Hurricane Rita, she became a member of The New Beginnings Church of God in Christ in Sulphur, Louisiana. She was dedicated and committed to serving God and living a Christian life. She always found the good in everyone no matter what and truly lived everyday according to the word of God. She loved people and made every effort to help everyone as best she could. She sincerely believed that God wanted her to be a servant to His people. She prayed for everyone daily because she knew that prayer was the solution to all of life's trials and tribulations.
