About the Author

Mary Murry

Mary Jane Jones, born February 21, 1947 during a very important poker game in Stringtown, Arkansas. I was the oldest of eight children born to Hilary and Margaret Jones. Graduated from Jasper High in Jasper, Arkansas. May of 1965. Right out of high school I started college at the Arkansas Tech University in Russellville, Arkansas. After my freshman year I decided this was not going to work out for me and went to work. I started working for Claridge Mfg., in the accounting department for approximately one year. I then decided to take a correspondence course to be a stewardess. I moved to Missouri for my in-flight instruction and it was clear to me, this was not my vocation. I worked in Kansas City, Missouri at Sears, Montgomery Wards and Katz. I met my husband in Kansas City through a friend and we had three children. During the child raising years I ran a licensed home daycare, and that is when I started compiling information for this book. I have had numerous jobs since that time and ended up in the Post Office in Odessa, Missouri, which I retired from.
