Mary was born March 23, 1952 in Bismarck, ND to Frank and Josephine (Nassif) Judt. She attended Special Education classes in the Mandan Public Schools. In the spring of 1973, at age 21, Mary graduated from the Special Education Class at Mandan High School. During high school Mary enjoyed her work experience in the school kitchen. In 1976 she enrolled in the vocational training program at Pride, Inc. where she did many types of work. In 1988 Mary moved to the Mandan group home and then returned to working full time at the Training Center (now called Workforce Development Center). She enjoyed the varied work this allowed and on Sunday afternoons she could be found working at Perkins wrapping silverware. Mary took trips to Hawaii, Nashville, and Medora. She had great memories and photos of these trips that she liked to share. Mary made many friends and touched countless lives over the years.
