She graduated from Brocton High School in 1936 and Illinois Business College in 1937. She married Marvin M. Frahm on March 4, 1938. Together they farmed in Douglas County until retiring in 1983. They had a daughter, Patricia Ann, who died in 2006. Mary was a long time member of Wesley Chapel Church in Newman and was active in the Women’s Club until her death.
