After retirement, Mary obtained her commercial driver’s license in 2010 and loved driving for CitiBus on the Texas Tech campus.  Mary enjoyed music and played the organ and piano at church. She also played the accordion at her grandmothers’ restaurant as entertainment for the guest. She loved dancing and was an avid reader, especially Danielle Steele and Nora Roberts. She sewed and crocheted beautiful quilts for her kids and grandkids. Mary loved to travel especially to the beach. She called herself “Mary, Mary, quite contrary” because she was always up for a good argument and lively discussion Her passion was being a grandmother and great-grandmother. More than anything Mary cherished her family and friends and was like a mother to so many.
