Please read what Mary’s daughter has to say about her: On December 4, 1946 the world was blessed with the birth of a precious baby girl, that would be named Mary Frances Anderson. She was the only girl out of 7 kids. She got sick and had to have a blood transfusion but that wouldn’t slow her down for long. She was raised on a farm but don’t think the fact that she was a girl would afford her any special treatment. She was expected to work hard thus instilling in her a good work ethic that also spilled into her academics. She was on the A honor roll throughout her education except for once, when she made her first and only C in Algebra. After graduating from high school, her dream was to go to college to become a nurse, but her dad wouldn’t let her although I’m not sure why. She decided to go to work, I don’t remember her first job and not long after that met and fell in love with the man that would become her husband. They started their lives together and started a family. They had four children, 3 boys and 1 girl. After 12 years, their marriage would come to an end and that left her raising her kids on her own and without any monetary help from their father. She was forced to work a lot in order to make ends meet but she did it, showing those around her that her that strong work ethic would keep her family afloat. She worked at that job for 35 years and retired there in 2016! Mary has quite a legacy with (for now) 11 grandkids and 9 great-grandkids. She is and has always been the most selfless and loving mother and grandmother. She is loved and adored by many.
