Mary was born in Seneca Falls, the daughter of the late John and Dorothy (Kelley) Clary. She graduated from Mynderse Academy in 1960 and furthered her education by taking secretarial classes. She was married to Charles E. Thorpe Jr., in 1961 and the two were married for 34 years before Charles' passing in 1995.

She married George Jensen on December 31st, 2009.

Mary loved her family very deeply and her world revolved around all of them. She was known for her baking and cooking expertise as well as her love for animals. She was a very loving nurturing person who was very lighthearted and was known for pulling the occasional prank. She loved to crochet; especially making gifts for her loved ones. Mary brought a lot of joy to those around her, and she will be dearly missed.
