In 1962, Mary married Charles William Stones in Salt Lake City, Utah. They moved to Ely to raise their family in 1973.
Mary was a dedicated Secretary/Bookkeeper for the Sacred Heart Catholic Rectory of which she was employed for 28 years. Mary was an active member of the Sacred Heart Catholic Church and provided many hours of volunteer services.
Mary enjoyed spending time with her family and friends. Although her body became frail and was not able to do a lot of things, she always found a way to make friends and family, in her own way, of making them feel special. Her courage and determination will always remind us of the preciousness of life. Mary’s Memories Live On Forever in Our Hearts.
