Mary Ann was born on April 9, 1960 in Helena to David Petek and Judith (Dahl) Nelson. She graduated from Capital High School in 1978. She then stayed in Helena working food service.
Mary Ann met Tim Mailloux in 1984 and married in March of 1985. They had two children, Becky and Steven. In 1993 they moved to Lincoln, Montana where Mary Ann cared for and raised her children. When her kids were grown, Mary Ann began working at the local grocery store D&D Foodtown where she worked for the last 13 years as a shift manager.
