She was united in marriage to Robert Sheppard Springer , “Shep”, of Fort Collins, Colorado on March 28th, 1948.

Mary was an accomplished gardener and was a member of the Rural Home Improvement Society in Bates County, Missouri. Over the years, Mary and Shep found great joy in raising Dexter cattle and Newfoundland dogs, bringing much joy to their lives. She was a Poudre School District Bus Driver for 18 years. Graveside services will be at 2:00 p.m. August 31st at Kidd’s Chapel Cemetery, Lowry City, Missouri.
