Mary’s passion in life was education and igniting the curiosity for discovery in the countless young minds that she touched, whether it was as an MPS grade school teacher of more than 30 years or with her children, grand children and great grand children or just about any other young mind that crossed paths with Mary.

Mary volunteered her time and talent post retirement for many years to the youth at MPS and as a mentor to fellow teachers.  Mary was also a long time devoted St Bernard’s bell choir member.
