Mary Anne Luck was born on April 23, 1935 in Iowa City, Iowa, the daughter of Glen and Velma (Bolton) Luck.   She was raised and educated in Clarksville and Waterloo School District.  She received her GED along with Don at Hawkeye Community College on June 9, 1987.  In 1970 the family moved to Reinbeck.  On June 17, 1950, Mary was united in marriage to Don Dalton at the 1st Wesleyan Methodist Church in Waterloo, Iowa.  From this union five children were born: Sharon, Brenda, Pam, Scott and Rhonda.

Mary was a very hardworking woman in all that she did.  She worked at the Waterloo Fish, Blackhawk Village Woolworth, Rath Packing Company, Eagles Foods for 21 years and Walmart for 13 years.  Mary had a pure heart and loved everyone that came across her path.  She did not care if it was her own child or not, she would love them all the same. Mary had a passion for singing, playing cards, Owls, gardening, camping but most importantly was the time she got to spend with her family and friends.
