Mary Vincent majored in chemistry and received a MS from the University of Louisville.

They moved to Colorado Springs in the late 1940's where they raised their 4 children. She enjoyed sewing, gardening, and spending time at her mountain cabin. She and her husband moved to Santa Barbara California in 1975, where she continued to garden, sew and travel. She also joined the Santa Barbara Botanic Gardens Guild, which she supported with her creativity for over 25 years. Always a sci-fi fan, if she didn't make it to Mars in person, then she certainly did in spirit.
