Mary's parents Paul Benjamin and Wilma Mae Aepli were early settlers to Tempe. Mary's grandfather Dr. Greg was the first doctor in Tempe. Mary was a native of Tempe, Arizona. She attended the original Tempe High School and Arizona Normal School (the predecessor of Arizona State University) where she was a tennis instructor and received a Bachelor of Arts in Physical Education.
