Mary worked for Sondheimer Lumber Company for over twenty years before becoming a bank teller at Cross Keys Bank, where she later retired to spend time with her family.
Mary was a beloved wife, mother, Meme, and friend to many. She spent her time watching her grandchildren play sports; she enjoyed every opportunity she had to spend time with her grand and great grandchildren. She was an avid LSU fan and loved all sports in general. She enjoyed spending time in the yard and helping others at all cost.
