Mary was born in Boise, Ada County, on March 16, 1947, a daughter to Reinhold H. and Blanche E. Trager, who resided at 2122 N. 20th St.  At some time she moved with her family to a farm between Boise and Meridian, where she grew up and developed her love for animals, especially horses.

She married and divorced a couple of times and had 2 children, one from each marriage. During her 2nd marriage she purchased and moved back into her family home on 2122 N. 20th St. in Boise.  She married and divorced one more time and moved to Meridian before she married the love of her life, Larry Smith.

She put herself through college and started her career as an X-ray technician. She worked her way up and was the manager of her department for the last 13 years of her career before she retired. 

Mary loved God, her family, good friends, music, flowers, gardening, fishing, camping, day hikes, you name it she loved life and the outdoors.  Her presence with us will be sorely missed.  She is loved.
