In 1958, Don and Mary built their dream home where they raised their children and spent a great amount of time entertaining friends, hosting bridge groups and was witness to the celebration of several weddings. After raising her seven children, Mary returned to school to earn her teaching degree from CMU. She then taught Junior High English for many years at Beaverton Rural Schools, before retiring with Don to be able to spend time with her expanding number of grandchildren.
