Mary was truly a Mentor. She encouraged ALL women to be successful at a time when we were just beginning to push ahead.in the business arena. I taught for Mary at Evening At Emory for over twenty years. During those years and for many after, Mary encouraged me to be a wife, Mother, and have a career. I wrote my first book which developed through teaching my classes. I admired Mary, I liked Mary, and I will forever be grateful for her freindship and her "push" to encourage my career. Mary did indeed make a diffference in the life of many. I am lucky to have known her.
