Mary was born in Detroit on March 8, 1931, the daughter of Patrick Tovey and the former Florence Surprenant. She graduated from Nazareth Academy, an all girl's school in Kalamazoo, in 1948. On June 26, 1954, Mary was united in marriage to Edward John Tober. Sadly, Edward preceded Mary in death in 1990. Mary was a member of Corpus Christi Parish (Holy Trinity Church) and a lifetime member of the Knights of Columbus #414 Ladies Auxiliary. Always one to follow sports, Mary was known for always listening to the Detroit Tigers and Detroit Lions games. In her free time, she enjoyed crafts and jewelry making, bowling, shuffleboard, and more recently, playing games on her Kindle. She enjoyed keeping in touch with family and friends while talking on the telephone. Her kind and loving ways will forever live on. To carry on her legacy, Mary leaves behind her three children, Timothy Tober and wife, Pamela (Christie) of Waianae, Hawaii; Robert Tober and wife, Jean (Curtis) of Bay City; and Susan Smith and husband, Brian of Manchester, New Hampshire. She was the most loving grandmother of Jeffrey Bessette and girlfriend, Alyssa Mahlstedt, also of Manchester, New Hampshire.
