Mary was born on August 23, 1933, in small, historic town of Camden, S.C. As a precocious and sentient child, blessed with wisdom and artistic talents beyond her years, Mary skipped several grades before attending Camden High School, where she led the school’s marching band as a baton-twirling majorette and graduated as valedictorian at age 15.
