Born in Santa Barbara to Mary and Manuel Lara, Mary attended Our Lady of Guadalupe Catholic School, and was a 1957 graduate of Santa Barbara High School.

Following graduation, Mary moved to North Hollywood, where she worked in accounting for Pacific Bell Telephone Co. Shortly after moving to North Hollywood, Mary met her future husband, Lee Roy.

Mary enjoyed bowling and dancing, and was an enthusiastic fan of the Los Angeles Dodgers, Lakers and the USTA. She looked forward to family gatherings where she was often “in charge of the grill” at BBQs.

Mary will be deeply missed by all who knew and loved her.

Mary was preceded in death by her parents, Mary and Manuel Lara; her brothers, Richard, Henry, and Joseph Lara, and sister, Lillian Bossé.
