She was a member of the Townline Community Club and the Blenheim-Dumfries Farm Women's Club. Proud of her Scottish ancestry, Mary aroused others to appreciate their heritage especially since so many in this district had ancestors who pioneered here coming across the sea from Scotland. Mary was the founder of the Townline Scottish Night. She was a faithful member of Knox United Church, Ayr, and in her younger years a devoted Sunday School teacher. She was a valued member of Knox U.C.W. and a dedicated worker of the former Kate M. Thompson Missionary Society of Knox.
