Mary grew up in the Methodist faith in south central Iowa and have many fond memories of that time. She moved to Minneapolis when she was 18 years old and has been here ever since. Mary worked several jobs before she found the perfect fit at the Federal Reserve Bank of Minneapolis where she stayed 34 years!


After retirement, Mary took some classes and did not do much of anything.  A friend who was a member of this church asked if she would be interested in applying for the secretary job.  Mary was hired and have been here almost seven years!


Her hobbies have not really changed much over the years- Mary enjoys reading (especially mysteries), going to the movies, cooking, and needlework. She is trying to get back into needlework now.
