Mary, was born 25 Aug 1920 in Great Falls, Cascade, Montana.

In the Fall of 1935, she went to live with her grandparents, Carl Edward and Minnie ELDRIDGE SCHLEGEL in Davenport, Scott, Iowa where she attended Davenport High School until she graduated in 1937. She received her B.A. degree from the University of Arizona at Tucson, majoring in education. She taught fourth grade for two years at the Pi Beta Phi Settlement School in Gatlinburg, Sevier, Tennessee.

During WWII, Mary joined the WAFS (Women's Air Force) and was training to become a pilot when the program for women was closed. She joined the American Red Cross and received her training at the American University in Washington, D.C. She served at Dunming, China (the other side of the hump) until the war was over in Aug 1945, and then was transferred to Tientsin, China until coming home in late 1946.

She married Walter Clark HANNA, Jr., on 20 Nov 1946 in Cimarron, New Mexico. Walter was bon 25 Oct 1920 in San Miguel, New Mexico, son of Walter Clark and Daphne HOLT HANNA. He served in the military during WWII from 1942-46. On 14 Jun 1957, "Clark" and dtr Randy Gae were killed in an accident on their ranch near Fountain, Colorado.

Mary married Jon Wallace FROST, son of Jon Wallace and Grade BIERER FROST on 14 Nov 1959 in Cimarron, New Mexico. Jon was born 23 Sept 1920 in Detroit, Michigan; shortly after the FROSTS moved to Santa Barbara, California. He graduated from the University of New Mexico in Albuquerque with a B.A. in History.

John had children by his first marriage: Blair Hannah FROST: b 7 Nov 1950 in San Marino, California; Wallis Alden b 31 Jan 1953 in Albuquerque, New Mexico; Ferris Frederica born 21 Feb 1954 in Albuquerque, New Mexico. The FROSTS make their home on a ranch near Fountain, Colorado (1985).

Jon died 31 May 2002 in Pueblo, Colorado. I don't have a death date for Mary. It can probably be found in SSDI which I don't have access to because Ancestry bought it and you need a subscription to access the info.
