Mary was engaged to Earl Yingling before he was sent off to serve in the Korean War. They were married, one week after he returned from service, on New Year’s Eve and were happily married for 66 years. Mary’s passion for art became her livelihood and she won numerous awards in art shows in PA and FL. She was commissioned to do several large murals, taught art classes, and had her own arts and crafts store. Aside from her love of painting, she enjoyed sewing, bridge, water skiing, cooking, entertaining, and the Red Hat Society.

Mary was a past President of Lake Latonka Women’s Club, was an active bocce player, proudly served as a Park Ranger for the Homosassa Springs Wildlife State Park, was very active in 4-H and in PTAs, and was an active member in the Immaculate Heart of Mary Church.
