Mary Rae was both a Girl Scouts and Boy Scouts leader and was very involved in all other activities in which her children participated. She served as President of the Mercy High School PTA. Mary Rae’s longtime involvement with the Firehouse Dinner Theater endeared her to many. She was active in Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic Parish and the Field Club Homeowners League where she lived for 47 years. She was known for her Fourth of July all-night escapades adorning each house in the neighborhood with an American flag so that when the sun came up, the streets were lined with them. Always a champion of college education for her children she began her own college career when her youngest child was two-years old and earned her Bachelor’s degree from College of Saint Mary in 1983. Mary Rae was a long-time successful real estate agent with CBS HOME Real Estate from where she retired in 2016.
