Barr, who had recently moved to Strathcona, Alberta, and acquired the Ross Block on Whyte Avenue with the intention of establishing a hardware store.

A new brick school opened in 1925 and was later named Mount Carmel School.

Mary married Edward Patrick Dornan on 20 Apr 1933. They had three sons, Paul, Charles Dennis (Denny) and Gerald Edward (Gerry). She taught with the Edmonton Catholic Board for many years, was a dedicated member of the Catholic Women’s League (CWL) and very involved with St. Anthony’s Church, including as the organist for 20 years. She was also very involved with the creation of a commemorative book for the 75th anniversary of St. Anthony's Church. Mary pursued many musical, artistic, and literary, and was a member of the Women's Musical Club of Edmonton. She was an active volunteer in many organizations, including the St. Joseph Hospital Auxiliary.

Mary was an avid writer and collector of family stories and community histories. Her work as a keeper of histories and stories culminated in a scrapbook-cum-manuscript covering predominantly the history of families in the Stratchona area and St. Anthony's Parish. She also created other scrapbooks pertaining to her Kellet, Wankel and Dornan families.

Dennis (Denny) Dornan was active in the Edmonton Junior Chamber of Commerce, including as Chairman of the Outstanding Citizen’s Committee. He cared for his widowed mother in her later years.
