She was the only daughter, but just one out of the five children born to Stampley and his wife of over two decades, Heidi. The couple has always taken pride in parenting their brood, which makes Mary's sudden demise a heartbreaking one. 

About fatherhood, Stampley once said:

"I enjoy being a father, and I embrace all the challenges that come with it."

It can only be hoped that Stampley and his family find the strength to come to terms with Mary's demise. May her soul rest in peace.
