Mary graduated from St. Mary’s High School in New England and started working at a doctor’s office. She met Roy R. Hulm Jr. through their interest in archery and they were married on January 11, 1959. They lived and raised a family of 8 children in Bismarck, ND. They had 5 sons, Jody (Dallas, TX), Terry (Bismarck, ND), Lonny (New Salem, ND), Randy (West Fargo, ND), and Ricky (Minot, ND); daughter, Mary Jo Hofferber (Mandan, ND); along with stepdaughters, Royann Beckman (Hannover, ND) and Tracey Hulm (Minot, ND) from Roy’s first marriage.
