After moving to Little Rock, Arkansas, Mary became a member of Calvary Baptist Church where she made many friends. She had a special relationship with her best friend, Mary Howell where they shared birthday celebrations, lunch dates, flea market shopping, and many stories. Her biggest love was for her family. She loved being with them and sharing stories of life-long memories. She loved going to the horse races with her daughters, granddaughter, and great-granddaughter which became a tradition for her birthday celebration every year. She loved traveling with her family.
