Mary was the daughter of Khatakose Harvey. She married Charles (Atsukwa) Bigsack and they had one daughter, Margie Miller, before Charles died in 1944. Mary later re-married Dan Wolf. Mary's daughter, Margie Miller, is an important elder of our Doig River First Nation. Margie continues to pass on the traditional skills she learned from her mother, Mary Harvey, and her step-father, Dan Wolf.
