Mary was born in Medford, one of six children of Italian immigrants Charles and Catherine (Alaimo) Natale. She was raised in Waltham where she met and married the love of her life for the next 58 years, Attilio “Arthur” Tiberio. Together they lived, worked, and raised their family in Watertown and Framingham before moving to Shrewsbury in 2000. From 1974 to 1989, Mary and her husband owned and operated M&W Auto Radiator.
