Marriage and Birthing Mike
She was married to Clay Banning and gave birth to Mike on Fort Hood, Texas in 1970. When Clay left to serve in the Vietnam War, he came back and abandoned his family. Mary continued to raise Mike and later presumably died sometime during Mike’s adulthood.
When Mike entered young adulthood, he shared a estranged relationship with his father due to him abandoning him and his mother long ago. Clay also stated that he deeply regretted leaving his family to Mike's wife; Leah Banning. To make up for this, Clay moves in with Mike's family, intending not to repeat his mistake.
