She also spent 38 years as a volunteer with the Winter Haven Hospital, and was a member of PEO, a philanthropic educational organization that provides scholarships to women, for 70 years.

Mary is survived by her son, Philip E. FREELAND and Fran FREELAND, of Waynesville, NC, and her daughter, Susan F. BASINI, of Bakersville, NC; her granddaughters, Melanie FREELAND of Tampa, Florida, and Leigha BASINI, of Washington, DC.
