Mary was born on January 28, 1947, in Crawfordsville, IN, daughter of Harold and Mary Louise Breeden. Mary was a Medical Assistant, Hollywood Elementary School Secretary and Credit Union Loan Officer. On October 30, 1966, she married Richard, her high school sweetheart.

They’ve been members of Corvette Coventry for 29 years and have a love for car shows and anywhere they could show their numerous Corvettes.
