Mary was a gracious, gregarious and outgoing member of the community. Her opinions on community issues were often sought, as she stayed active as both a powerful fundraiser for the community, and as the strong and disciplined mother of her five sons. Mary’s primary loves were her family, classical music, Stanford University, fundraising and the Republican National Party.

Mary is survived by her oldest sister Shirley Rolfes McCreight of Gilbert, AZ.
A Celebration of life will be held for Mary in Rancho Mirage, after current shelter-in-place restrictions lift. Mary’s final resting place will be in Lafayette, California, beside and in-peace with her mother and father.
