Mary's leadership extended beyond her positions within the churches Dan pastored. At Hawai`i Baptist Academy she directed the High School and Handbell Choirs, and later became Development Director. She also provided many talents as Director of the Women's Missionary Union for the Hawai`i Pacific Baptist Convention. At the age of fifty-five, Mary embarked on a new adventure, pursuing her life-long desire to play the harp. She became a professional harpist, performing for weddings, funerals, several hotels, coffee houses, private parties and conventions. She especially enjoyed volunteering her talent for many community events, including the annual Memorial Tree Service for Kapi`olani Medical Center for Women and Childrenan event for which she played seventeen years. In 2008, Mary moved to the Island of Maui where she resided with daughters Verdine and Eddy who shared in her care until death. Mary was predeceased by her husband, Daniel H.C. Kong, her infant daughter, Tommye-Lei Kong, and her parents, Verdie Welch Braddock and Thomas N. Braddock.

Braddock (Martha); sisters Betty Jo Henry and Emma Marie Braddock; sisters-in-law Esther Noguchi and Eileen Lovelace; dearly loved grandchildren, Hope Kanani De Fries, Daniel Keala De Fries and Riverson Poole.

In 1992 her father convinced her to run a new family endeavor called One Fas Lube in the Costco Salt Lake Shopping Center.

In 2007 One Fas Lube closed due to the departure of Costco and the non-renewal of their lease by Target, thus opening up Donna's re-introduction to education.
