She was a graduate of Catholic High School and met the love of her life, John William (Bill) Jones, Jr., when he was a student at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in Troy. They married in 1951. Mary was a wonderful homemaker and was also a devoted wife, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother. She enjoyed spending time with her family, playing bridge with her friends and was very proud of her many years of volunteer work at the Sugden Community Theatre in Naples, where she fashioned costumes for the performers.
