Mary was born on September 27th, 1923 in Enid Oklahoma to Russell and Molly Phillips. She had 4 brothers and 2 sisters, all of whom were very close. She lived the majority of her childhood in Kansas and graduated from Howard High School in 1938. From there she moved to Wichita for a short time before moving to Ponca City. She was a wonderful cook and worked at many of Ponca’s local diners as well as JC Penny’s.

Mary had 2 children, Myra Kay Haun Lingnau and Henry Wood Haun. Henry served in Vietnam, Germany and retired from the Army. She was very proud of Henry’s service to our country.
