Mary Clements married Ray Eddins on October 14, 1972, in Northport, Alabama. They have two daughters, Rachel Adele Eddins Nichols and Mary Catherine Eddins.
Mary Eddins taught at Huntsville's Whitesburg Junior High School for a short time, then moved to Dothan. She resumed teaching when her daughters were in elementary school, first at the librarian at Abbeville Elementary in Henry County, then as a media specialist at Southside Elementary and, later, Cloverdale Elementary in the Dothan City School System.
