She was preceded in death by her parents; her husband of 60 years (Sidney Walter Green, who passed away in 1998); her first child (Larry Devon Green, who passed away at 11 months); five sisters: Lorean, Esma, Bessie, Francis and Annie; and four brothers: Wallace, Jack, James and Morris.

Mary grew up on a farm in the hills of Mississippi. She worked in the fields, milked cows and did all the chores associated with farm life. In school, she enjoyed math, reading, spelling, and geography. She was quite athletic and participated in basketball and track. She also loved to dance. Mary and Walter Green were married in 1938 and began raising a family in Mississippi. In 1953 the family moved to Natchitoches where Walter worked for the Southern Cotton Oil Company.  Mary worked for Nichols Department Store in Natchitoches for 18 years. After retiring at age 62, she began her lifelong dream of becoming an artist. She took drawing lessons from Kate Smith and painting lessons from Marie Luchek, followed by three semesters at Northwestern State University studying under Dr. Bill Byrant.  Mary was a member of the Natchitoches Art Guild from its beginning and won many awards at the Orville Hanchey Gallery and at parish and state fairs.
