Mary was born October 3, 1923 in Birmingham, Alabama to George F. Estey and Ruby Bibb Estey. She spent her childhood in Alabama and attended Brigham Young University, where she studied drama. On January 19, 1943, she married Walter Merle Anglesey in the Salt Lake LDS Temple and lived in Alabama during World War II while her husband was in the service.

Her husband, Merle, passed away on June 12, 2001 and Mary later moved to Price, Utah, to be near her daughter, Gayann Norton.
Mary was an active member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints where she served in many callings, including Relief Society President and Stake and Ward Drama Director. She was very talented in public speaking, directing plays and in giving dramatic readings. She served in the Idaho Falls Temple with her husband for several years.
