There she met her future husband Monroe Donsker who was a distinguished professor of mathematics at New York University until his death in 1991. Mary was a talented water color artist who enjoyed painting and writing and she loved to travel. She leaves behind four cousins and two nephews and is survived by her second husband, Nejet Polat.
