A few years later, she completed a Master’s degree in Mathematics at the University of Illinois, Chicago. In 1988, Mary and her husband, Dennis, moved to Pittsburgh and joined UUCNH as members. Their two children grew up in the church;  Julie is now in Washington D.C.,  Kevin is in Rochester N.Y.

In 2016, Mary retired from teaching math at Carlow University.

She is very happy to have more time for music, reading, socializing, and watercolors classes.
