The family moved to New Orleans where she grew up, graduated from Sophie Newcomb College and attended the Tulane Graduate School of Work. It was in New Orleans that she met and later, in 1951, married the love of her life sharing the next 67 years. In 1957, she ended her career in social work and set out upon her cherished role of ""Mom"" to first Greg and then Sara. The Carlisles moved to Tuscaloosa in 1960 when Bill joined Dr. David Partlow, Sr. in the practice of OB/GYN. Mary was a 50+ year member of First Presbyterian Church. She enjoyed her community service in Junior League and was a member of U.D.C. and Les Amis Study Club.
In lieu of flowers, the family suggests that donations be made to Hospice of West Alabama or the charity of your choice.
