She married Max Decker on November 20, 1945 in Oakland, California, where Max was training to be a corpsman with the Navy.  They remained in California while Max finished his training.  The war ended before Max was deployed and the couple returned to Guernsey.  Eventually the family moved to Newcastle in 1954 where Max opened Deckers Food Center.  Mary raised her six children and was a full-time homemaker.  She also participated in several organizations in the community.
