Mary Oliver

Board Member

Mary Oliver was elected to her first three-year term on the MVMC Board of Trustees. She continues to enjoy her personal and professional life at home in the Madison Valley. It was 1960 when she moved with her family to the Carkeek Ranch east of Cameron. She would tell you that growing up on ranches is the fondest of her childhood and teenage memories. She prides herself in being a native Montanan and having parented a daughter and son. Mary takes pleasure in having had the opportunity to accept a position with First Madison Valley Bank prior to its opening in 1965. After graduating from Ennis High School and from Kinman Business University she chose to return to the bank’s employ where she has worked for 50+ years. Working for a family-owned community bank with four locations in diverse communities has been a valued education related to the importance of building trusted relationships and becoming involved in the community to better understand the specific needs and expectation of the local families and businesses. Mary recently was appointed to the Madison County Local Housing Authority Council. Mary serves on the Boards of the Montana Preservation Alliance, the Grizzly & Wolf Discovery Center and the Madison County Economic Development Council. She also serves as a State Advisor to the National Trust for Historic Preservation. The favorite of her past community service includes the following: 4H Project leader, Councilperson for the Ennis Boy Scouts and Big Brothers & Big Sisters, Ennis People to People Chapter Officer, member of the Main Street Improvement Team in Sheridan, Board Member of the Ennis and Virginia City Chambers, Inaugural Class Member of Leadership Montana travelling the great State of Montana throughout 2005, Chair of the Montana Heritage Commission and Montana Chamber of Commerce Board Member. When recently asked what qualifies Mary for a Madison Valley Board Trustee position, she responded by saying, “While I don’t have a degree in healthcare, I have a well-earned degree in community care.”
