Mary serves as the adviser for a donor advised fund created by her dear neighbor Sydney before her death. Sydney’s love for babies inspired Mary to give to M Health Fairview St. John’s Hospital in Maplewood. The donation funded cameras in the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) so parents can see their babies at any time of day or night.
Mary continues Sydney’s legacy by giving to causes Sydney supported. “Education and babies were some of her top priorities," said Mary. "She was a teacher.”
