Mary exuded a love for her Polish heritage that can be seen in her upbringing and in her daughters. She began Polish folk dancing at a young age and graduated from Polish Women's Alliance (PWA) Zamek Dance Ensemble ('79). She continued to stay active in PWA and joined the Polish Roman Catholic Union of America in order for her daughters to join a local Polish folk-dance group. Mary put in over 26 years of service as a dance mom, not only to her daughters, but to countless other children within the Mala Polska Folk Ensemble and Zajaczek Dance Ensemble. Aside from dancing, Mary was also fluent in the Polish language and maintained close ties with her family in Poland, visiting whenever she could.
Mary's other hobbies included, but were not limited to: singing in choirs at Transfiguration, St. Albertus and St. Josaphat; being a cantor at St. Augustine; going to the casino; cheering for her beloved Lions, Tigers and Red Wings; playing cards; cooking up a traditional Polish meal or her famous lasagna; traveling much of North America and Europe; but especially spending time with family and friends.
