Mary was born September 29, 1920 to William Lawrence and Cora G (O'RORKE) McBRIDE in her grandparents O'RORKE home at 719 W Garden Ave in Coeur d'Alene, Idaho. Her childhood years were spent on a family cattle ranch located on the northern edge of the Okanogan Valley, high above the forested hills of Osoyoos in a small cattle village named Bridesville, British Columbia. It was small: a one room country school with twelve students at the most, a post office, a mixed grocery and variety store, a customs and immigration office, Great Northern train depot, a hotel with attached beer parlor and dance hall. She rode to school on a small, gentle grey pony. Her father would always bring the saddled horse to the kitchen steps so that she avoided walking in the barn yard. She was the first from our side of the mountain to attend high school, having been a four-year boarder girl at IHM Academy in Coeur d'Alene.

She graduated from the University of Idaho in 1943 with a BS in Home Economics. She taught in the St Maries and Coeur d'Alene High School. She returned to the University as Moscow for a year of dietetic studies and completed a year of dietetic internship at St Mary's Hospital/May Clinic, Rochester MN. She served as director of food services at the COG and Jesuit faculty at Gonzaga University.

She earned a Masters Degree in Nutrition at Case Western Reserve University, then returned to Spokane and worked over fifteen years with the Spokane County Health Department to establish the WIC program, a nutrition program for at risk mothers, infants and children. She has served as past president of the Washington State Dietetic Association and was co-founder of Our Lady of the Lake Court #1447, Catholic Daughters of the Americas (Coeur d'Alene).

Her brother, William James McBride, died in 1922 at age 7 in Sandpoint. She is survived by a brother, John Patrick McBride SJ, and a daughter, Veronica Anne (Mrs Joseph) O'Neil, and grandson Daniel Patrick O'Neil.
