Mary Schonfield was a dear wife and mother of two daughters. Seen with a medical, plant, bird or flower book in her hand and eager to learn; Mary was accepted to UC Berkeley in her early 20’s, but decided to stay with her future husband to marry, raise a family, and build a homestead in a rural community.

She helped support her family throughout the years by working first as a dental assistant, then a receptionist at a rural health clinic, and lastly as a medical assistant. In her late 40’s she decided to go back to school so that she could apply to a Physician Assistant program. Driving 60 miles each way to school several times a week, while working, Mary excelled in her studies. She was accepted
