She was an oil painter and a member of the Bucks County Art League. She also was a member of the Upper Bucks Senior Center and enjoyed playing Bingo. Mary was a world traveler, including traveling the three continents Africa, Asia and Europe, and especially enjoyed her travels with her dear friend, Janet Bracalente, for equestrian shows. In addition to horses, Mary loved all creatures great and small.

She also was a member of St. Isidore's Catholic Church in Quakertown, where she was active in the Women of St. Isidore's, the church choir, was a church lector and worked with the parish center food bank.
