Mary was born and raised in the beautiful city of Edgewood KY and resided in Erlanger until her passing. Mary graduated from Dixie high School in 1972. In 1975 she married her high school sweetheart and love of her life William Louis Weltzer, or Billy as she liked to call him. Bill and Mary shared a beautiful, happy, adventurous life together. They lived in California, Washington and Texas before returning to their roots in Kentucky. Mary selflessly devoted her life to taking care of her husband, two children and four grandchildren. Mary loved all children and was an advocate of many children’s causes. She sponsored many families around the world and has donated her resources to many other children’s organizations.

Mary was immensely proud of her family and leaves behind many beautiful memories.
