Birth: Aug. 3, 1913
Death: May 29, 1978

Mary Christian, was Sin Aikst (now known as Lakes tribe, one of the Confederated Tribes of the Colville Reservation)

Her father, Alex Christian, was known as Pic Ah Kelowna, "White Grizzly Bear"; her uncle (brother of her mother) was Chief James Bernard, a Sin Aikst leader in the early 20th century.

She and her husband Julian Reyes moved in 19351937, during the period of construction of the Grand Coulee Dam, they started a Chinese restaurant even though neither of them could prepare Chinese food except for simple dishes such as pork fried rice, egg foo-yung, and chop suey". They soon acquired an ethnically Chinese partner and cook, Harry Wong; Wong bought them out of the restaurant in 1937. Mary and Julian separated in 1939 and subsequently divorced; she would later work again for Wong in Tacoma, Washington, and eventually marry him.
