She was born on Jan. 29, 1940, in Effingham County, the daughter of Ed and Lena (Buenker) Feldhake.

Together they farmed and raised five children in rural Mason. Jerry preceded her in death on May 24, 2006. Mary worked on the farm alongside her husband, was a homemaker, and retired from St. Anthony Memorial Hospital in 2004.
