She had become a mother figure for the original cast who were trying to adapt to life back in the community after living in the English world. She understood their plights as she had been banished from the church, as well. Never one to shy away from an adventure, she took life head-on. She traveled with the kids and was always a shoulder to lean on. Mama Mary was also always the voice of reason even if they did not always like what she had to say. She became a mentor for Jeremiah Raber but did eventually decide to go back to the church for her husband, Chester.

After Season 5, she left the hit TLC series and Grandma Ada took her place. However, she could never truly be replaced in the hearts of fans. When news broke that she was ill, prayers were sent from all over for a quick recovery. “We were so shocked to learn that our wonderful Mary is in the hospital. Please send her huge hugs. She will be in our thoughts and prayers,” one person commented.  So, how is she doing? Here is an update.
