In her childhood days she grew up at Camp Michaux as her father was a caretaker there.  Mary and her sisters had such fun playing in the mountains.  She enjoyed her flowers, watching the birds, working in her garden and being with her family and friends.  She loved the Lord and being there for anyone who needed a friend.
