Mary was born July 3, 1916, in Boulder, Colo., to Warren and Hilda (Engelstad) Snodgrass. Most of her early years were with her family in Montana.

They moved to the Tri-Cities area shortly after and both worked for General Electric at Hanford for several years. In the early 1950s they moved to Whidbey Island where Melvin was a contractor and Mary worked as the company bookkeeper. In the late 1950s they purchased Freeland Cafe in Freeland which they operated for several years. They later moved to Coupeville where they owned and operated the liquor store and a laundromat. They moved to Quincy in the mid 1970s and had owned and operated the George Liquor Store until retirement in the late 1970s. They have resided at Sunland Estates since that time.

Case of Quincy; three children, Ronald Case of Quincy, Marjorie Case of Seattle and Gordon Reeve of Lake Havasu City, Ariz.; and 14 grandchildren and numerous great-grandchildren and great-great-grandchildren.
