She directed many school plays, and she traveled throughout Europe as a chaperone for high school students in the "People to People" program. In 1986, the State of Indiana Board of Education recognized Mary as a Teacher of Distinction. Mary moved to Indianapolis in 1987, where she taught writing courses at IUPUI; and when she moved to Bloomington in 1990, she tutored student athletes for the IU Athletic Department.

She found great joy in her grandchildren: Christopher, Melissa, Nicholas, Megan, and Suzanne Nogami. Mary will be remembered as a devoted teacher, an enthusiastic thespian, an ardent IU fan, a fashionista who didn't wait until she was old to wear purple, and - most of all - a beloved mother, grandmother, and friend. A celebration of her life will be held in Delphi, Indiana in the future. Mary would be honored by contributions to the Delphi Preservation Society or your local animal shelter. Read Obituary
