Mary was born on February 20, 1929 in Manhattan, New York, to George and Rosemary Carter. At a very early age, Mary took care of her 6 siblings after her father passed away from of a heart attack and this caring nature followed her through her long life.

Mary raised her children all while staying active in her church ministry at St. Aloysius Catholic Church.

She would make a yearly trip to bring the sick, disabled, and poor on a pilgrimage to Lourdes, France to visit the Shrine of St. Bernadette. Her hobbies and interests included Christmas held at her house for the entire family, reading, and baking.

     Mary is preceded in death by her late husband John Richard Carter, her brothers Robert Stewart and Delford Stewart, her sons Robert Stewart and George Stewart, daughter Jennifer Malta, and grandsons Daniel Stewart, Bryan Stewart, and granddaughter Christie Stewart.
