Throughout her life, Mary made a difference in many, many people's lives, whether assisting them to improve their health, providing them with aid in times of need, comfort and steadfast friendship, listening and emotional support, common sense advice, or spiritual encouragement. An early member of the National Health Federation, she was a collaborator with Adele Davis and Gladys Lindberg. Mary was devoted to learning about nutrition and natural healing methods and wanted to educate people about the importance of diet and nutrition. She was way ahead of her time. Mary taught English and reading and also assisted with classes for developmentally disabled students at Redondo Urnon High School in Redondo Beach, Calif. She also participated in a masters theater arts program at the University of Southern California, leading to her giving delightful acting performances in local community theater and the Edinborough Theatre Festival in Scotland.

Her grandfather, Clyde Forest Hunt, was a prominent businessman in Thomson, with interests in forestry and banking, and recognition for generosity and contributions to the community.
The embodiment of Christian love, compassion and humility, Mary always put others' needs before hers. Mary kept two residences, one in Hermosa Beach, Calif., and one in Augusta. Her homes were always welcoming places, always spiritual centers, and always lots of fun to visit. Mary was loved by little children, teenagers, young parents, business people, folks with hard lives, the elderly and the infirm. She always was there for them. A devout student of the Bible, with an encyclopedic mind, she and her children sang together throughout her life. She loved singing the old hymns. Mary attended church at Westside Baptist Church in Martinez, where she was a member when she went to be with the Lord. Mary also was a member of the First Baptist Church of Thomson for many years, and on the West Coast attended Rolling Hills Covenant Church in Rolling Hills, Calif.
