Mary grew up in Omaha and attended Our Lady of Lourdes Parish & School, Duchesne Academy of the Sacred Heart and graduated from the University of Nebraska with an Accounting degree. She held many jobs over the years, but her favorite was motherhood. She was a homeroom mom, chaperoned countless field trips and volunteered at St. Paul’s Catholic School. Once her children were in school, she returned to the workforce and eventually was appointed Director of Merchandise for Golf Course Properties at the PGA Tour. She retired in 2014 to spend more time with her grandchildren and had a passion for crafts that she often gifted to friends and family.
