Mary was born October 13th 1964 in North Kansas City, Mo., to Joseph Travis and Margaret (Renninger) Hicks. While attending college she met her husband of 29 years, Everette Christian Campfield. Together they raised two beautiful children.

Mary and Chris traveled to many places together including excursions for Chris’ employment or their favorite; cruises in the Caribbean. She was a creative crafter and made many Christmas decorations. Mary also collected alligators as tribute to her Louisiana heritage. She blessed many people including the elderly.
