The daughter of Vincel Krupka and Ernestine Swatz, Mary married Edward Arthur "Ed" Cobine, Sr. on 31 Aug 1892 in Edwardsville, Madison County. They were the parents of 11 children, although 2 died in infancy or early childhood.

By the turn of the century, Ed's widowed father lived with the family in Edwardsville. Mary was a homemaker and her husband was a member of the police force.

The Cobines moved to nearby Wood River in 1916. Ed continued his work in law enforcement and served as a Wood River constable for 16 years. He became a justice of the peace and served in that capacity for 16 years until he died of a heart attack in 1944.

Mary was a member of the Women of the Moose Lodge 1349 in Wood River.

Mary was under a doctor's care with a heart ailment for 13 years. She moved in with the family of her son, Raymond, about 1947. She lived there for 10 years.

As Mary's condition continued to decline, she became a patient at Odd Fellows Home in Mattoon, Illinois. She was there for 9 days when she suffered a fatal heart attack.

At the time of her death, Mary was 82 years, 6 months and 22 days old. Survivors included 6 sons, Jack, Ernest, Edward, Oliver, Theodore and Raymond Cobine; 2 daughters, Mae Grove and Grace Stone; 13 grandchildren; and 22 great-grandchildren.

In addition to her husband, Mary was preceded in death by her parents; 1 daughter, Mabel Cobine; 2 sons, Leonard and Arthur Cobine; 1 sister, Lizzie Weber; and 1 brother, William Krupka.
