She was born in 1934 at home in Newport, Campbell County, Kentucky, the youngest of six children, on the hottest day--108 degrees--ever recorded there for July 22. Her father died when she was only one year old. Mary recalled how each Christmas Eve growing up the family was too poor to buy stockings to hang. So the children put out their cereal bowls instead. A devoted daughter, sister, wife, mother, and grandmother, Mary Margaret Rita Stauber Donnelly was a devout Catholic who, thanks to her son Tommy, fulfilled her dream of visiting the Vatican in 1999. She was a graduate of Our Lady of Providence High School in Newport.

Mary met her future husband at a mixer at Xavier University in Cincinnati, Hamilton County, Ohio. She married Thomas Meiners Donnelly on September 3, 1955 at Corpus Christi Roman Catholic Church in Newport, and they had eight children: Thomas Christian Donnelly (anthropologist, attorney, athletic director, husband, and father), Ann ("Nancy") Mary Donnelly Maushart (nurse, wife, and mother), Kevin Roger Donnelly (real estate appraiser, real estate broker, husband and father), Kathleen Mary Donnelly Smith (artist, wife, and mother), Patricia Mary Donnelly Kues (nurse, wife, and mother), Mary Jude Donnelly Gruenschlaeger (business woman, wife, and mother), Molly Marie Donnelly Simmins (educator,, wife, and mother), and Kelly Marie Donnelly (nurse and mother), 27 grandchildren, and many great-grandchildren.

For decades she was a member of Saint Thomas Roman Catholic Church in Fort Thomas, Campbell County. Mary died June 8, 2000 surrounded by all her children and other family saying the rosary at home at 77 West Villa Place in Fort Thomas, of cancer at age 65. She is buried next to her husband and her parents, Christine Simon Stauber and Christian Stauber.

She was the fourth of four generations of mothers and daughters buried at St. Joseph Catholic Cemetery in Wilder, Campbell County. Her ancestry was German.
