After retiring from Gallo, she chose to work part time from her home for several more years before finally deciding to begin enjoying those Golden Years. She was passionate about golf and enjoyed playing at least three days a week and made many new friends along the way. In addition to the Giants and Tiger Woods, Mary‘s other passions were gardening and cooking. Some of her favorite things to do were finding new recipes and sharing them with friends and family, and Christmas baking and going for long walks.
