In her early years and living in Belfast she enjoyed taking her children to the city park and watching them swim in the pool, relaxing at her cottage on Pitcher pond, visiting family to talk and play card games, and going to the Fall county fairs. Later she worked at Holmes Greenhouse for many years and loved working with flowers. She loved growing flowers in her home gardens, watching the birds at her feeder and spending time with family and friends. Family came first for Mary and she was a kind and caring friend and neighbor to all that knew her. She also loved doing puzzles with family during her last year of life.
