Mary and her family moved to Syracuse New York when Mary was still a young child. She graduated from Onondaga High located just outside of Syracuse in 1964.

A few years later Mary met and fell in love with William Ralph Hatfield. They were married February 16, 1974. Mary worked most of her life as a data processor for Tampa Electric.

Mary was a caring person and would give you anything she had if you just asked. She was a strong woman and stood up for herself and those around her if the situation called for it. She loved cooking and could produce nearly any recipe, most from memory. Gardening and flowers were one of her many hobbies.

One of the most admired things about her, was the devoted wife she was to Uncle Bill. She cooked and cleaned, took care of him when he was sick and always stood proudly by his side for over 43 years.

She was predeceased by her parents, two sisters, Peggy Sue and Donna Alberta and two brothers, James Clayton and Gilbert. Left to mourn her loss is her husband, William R. "Uncle Bill" Hatfield, her brother, Ronald Albert "Bud" Zimmers (Diana), as well as many nieces, nephews and friends.
