Mary grew up in the Navy Yard section of Natick around the corner from Carl the love of her life. She was a graduate of Natick High class of 1945, and shortly after she began taking the train into Boston to pursue her career as a hairdresser. Her and her sister Jean opened up their own salon on North Main Street in Natick. During that time, she also began to raise her family with Carl.
Carl and Mary’s house was open to all and was always a neighborhood favorite for their family and friends. Mary’s presence sprinkled with good humor and kindness made everyone feel like it was their home.
