Mary was born in Cut Bank on December 14, 1930, to Chester and Dorothy DeZort. She attended Meadow Brook Country School in Kevin and graduated from Cut Bank High School in 1948.

She worked as a bank teller in Great Falls, where she met her future husband, Arthur “Pete” Stone. They married on October 18, 1953, and from this marriage, six children were welcomed.

After raising her kids, she became a cook at the Rescue Mission and later worked at Deaconess Hospital for the food/nutrition services. She retired in 1997.
