Webster and Clara Aunita Kessler Webster, Mary grew up in Altadena, attended Longfellow, McKinley, Marshall, and Pasadena Junior College, now PCC. She went on to the the University of Oregon where her studies were interrupted by WWII.

Over the years she served on the vestry of All Saints Church, the boards of Scripps Home, Westridge School, and The Valley Hunt Club, and was a tireless Trojan fan. In addition to family, her fondest associations were with The Quilters who shared her love of sewing, knitting, needlepoint and quilting, and The Fair Ladies who stage their annual sale of such crafts to raise money for Villa Esperanza.
