Birth: Aug. 15, 1907
Death: unknown

Mary, was born to Ukrainian immigrants Mike and Anna (Wengier) Manek in Harrah, Indian Territory. Mary was child number 3 of 14. Of those fourteen children,some would not survive infancy or even childhood. Mary grew up attending Peach Grove School (NE 63rd & Harrah Road) through the eighth grade. She did not get to attend high school because her mother needed her help on the farm and with the many children at home. In her mid 20's Mary met Joe Erbin, son of John and Pauline (Brzozowski) Erbin. The couple would marry on January 24, 1933 and soon would have two daughters, Julia Ann and Betty Jo. Mary and Joe would see their daughters grow up, marry, and have children of their own. During these years Mary would continue working hard on the farm, helping Joe in the fields, and raising their family. Sadly, Joe would pass in January of 1970 leaving Mary a widow. Over the years, her grandkids would keep her busy, Julia's two boys, Jeff and Robby Wall, and Betty's three kids, David, Tammy and Kim Vinson, would all grow up just a few acres away from their grandma. In 2006, late in Mary's life, she would loose her first daughter Julia and later in 2009 her son-in-law James Vinson would pass. Mary is a lifelong member of St. Mary Ukrainian Orthodox Church in Jones, a parish her parents and grandparents would help establish in the early 1900's.
