On August 17, 1938, Raymond Dewey and his wife, the former Margaret Kennedy, both of Chicago, rejoiced in the birth of a daughter. They christened her Mary Patricia. She was their second child, following James Raymond, who was four years old at the time of her birth. In 1942 another child joined the family, Robert Aaron.
