Mary was born February 5, 1948 to Anthony and Mary (nee Albers) Stroeder and was the tenth of 18 children.

They settled on the Lamping family farm near Lake Lenore. In 1974, they were blessed with their first daughter Tina and in 1975, their second daughter Jodie. After a few years enjoying being a mom, she returned to the work force and worked at Central Meats, the Co-op and finally Bethany Pioneer Village until her retirement in 2010.
