Mary Power

Mary Power was one of Laura's closest friends during her teenage years in De Smet, South Dakota. Although she is courted by Cap Garland in Laura's books, she has a new beau towars the end of These Happy Golden Years, the banker Ed Sanford. Mary and Ed married and lived in De Smet for many years, across the street from Ma and Pa. They had no children. In the early 1900s, Mary and Ed moved to Bellingham, Washington. Laura likely never heard from her again.
