Mary met her husband, James Paul Huckaby while she was in college. They married on June 6, 1942, in San Antonio, TX, where he was stationed while serving as a Lieutenant in the Army.

For most of their married years, Mary and James lived a happy life in Roebuck, SC, with their two children, who were the most important part of her life. Mary was a lifetime member of Bethlehem Baptist Church in Roebuck and her hobbies included cooking, sewing, gardening and participating in various volunteer causes.
