She was born to Eugene and Ann Blackwell Dozier in Little Rock, AR and graduated from Little Rock Central. She married Jerry Hunter and they made their home in Lake Village, AR until he died in 1978. Mary later married W. C. Woodruff in 1982 making their home in Glen Allan, MS. She worked and was an important part of the family farm. She was an active member of Glen Allan United Methodist Church.

Mary spent many afternoons on the lake and loved to water ski. In their early years, Mary and W. C. enjoyed the winter months in West Yellowstone, MT riding the trails on snowmobiles. Later on, they traded the winter cold for the summer heat and spent many long days on the beaches of Marco Island, FL. This is where her fascination with God’s spectacular sunsets emerged.
