In 1977 Mary had a brief affair with her mother's husband Neil Curtis. Later that year Mary began seeing Chris Kositchek. When Chris quit Anderson Manufacturing to form his own company, Mary supported him but they both returned to Anderson when Bob personally asked them back. Later that year, after Linda Woodruff and Stephanie Woodruff began dirty dealings in the company, Mary confronted her father about Linda and Neil, and Bob quickly investigated the alleged affair and took away Linda's power at the company. Chris asked Mary to marry him but when she turned him down they broke up. Later, when Chris moved in with Amanda Howard Peters, Mary re-thought her actions and decided to fight for Chris. One day while arguing with Chris she was accidentally hit by his car when he attempted to drive off.
By the end of 1979 Mary became involved with Alex Marshall and in March of 1980 she and Alex married. At their wedding, Mary's father Bob suffered a heart attack and died. Later that year Mary learned that Alex had only married her because he was helping two different men take over Anderson Manufacturing and she divorced him and kicked him out of the business. She also learned that David Banning was in on the takeover and told him to leave town as well.
In 1974, when Mary's mother Phyllis tried to murder Julie Olson Williams, Mary was hit by mistake but lived.
In 1981, Mary was jealous of Marie Horton and Alex's relationship and set out to sabotage it.
In 1982, Mary was murdered by the Salem Strangler, leaving Anderson Manufacturing to Melissa Horton and Phyllis Anderson.
