Mary was born in Waterloo, NY, the daughter of the late George and Betty (Troidle) Hollfelder. She attended local schools and graduated from Mynderse Academy in Seneca Falls. When she was 22, she married the late Lawrence A. Smith, with whom she shared 43 wonderful years until his passing in 2005.

For many years, Mary owned and operated the Antique Treasure Shoppe on Route 318 in Seneca Falls, which she later renamed to Catch All Collectibles when she relocated to Penny Lane in Waterloo. She always enjoyed her jewelry crafting and was very proud of the Blue Ribbons she won from the county fair.
