She was born April 22, 1943 to the late William “Billy” Winfield and Sadie Gilliam Winfield. Mary was educated in Dinwiddie County Public Schools. She was employed with Keller Aluminum Factory, Rollic Sewing Factory, Aleen Sewing Factory and The Comfort Group and later in later years worked as a caretaker for many.

A woman of faith, who was known for saying “What God has for you is for you” or "My God will fix it after a while”. If you knew her you knew she loved singing. Mary was a member of the Lovely Zion Baptist Church Senior Choir and Women’s Choir where she enjoyed singing songs of praise. Mary loved working in her flowers, cooking, talking to family and friends on the phone, sewing and caring for others.
