Mary Worden’s Work Ethic Leads to Business Ownership

‘Mother, hard worker, business owner’ – Mary Worden is the daughter of Earl, a farmer and semi-pro baseball pitcher, and Florence Styer Wilcox. Mary was born in Cardington in 1929 with two brothers Melvin and Robert. The family moved to Ohio 602 and Mary went to North Robinson School. She was a cheerleader for three years and loved school. She was also a contestant at the Corn Queen, now the Bratwurst Festival. The summer before she was in second grade, she went to Columbus to babysit the Ferd Unckrich family. When Mary had nothing else to do, she mowed their lawn. Ferd was impressed and always bragged about her. Her parents were supportive; they trusted her and knew that she wanted to work to live well.
