In June of 1947, Mary was united in marriage to William "Bill" Snyder at St. Patrick's Catholic Church in Estherville. The couple made their home in rural Estherville where they began raising their family and farmed. In addition to being a mom, wife and helping on the farm, Mary was employed outside the home at Butterfield Produce, Land O' Lakes in Estherville and also the candy factory in Jackson, Minnesota. Later she was employed at Good Samaritan Home in Estherville in the Dietary Department until her retirement. Bill died in March of 1978. In her leisure time Mary enjoyed coloring and games, especially Rummikub. The last few years she made her home at Windsor Manor in Estherville where she was able to maintain her independence. Mary's greatest pleasure in life was spending time with her family.
