Mary Barzee Flores was born in Miami’s Jackson Memorial Hospital. Her father, Austin Barzee, was a veteran of World War II, and managed a fish and tackle store in Miami. Her mother, Margaret, was an Air Force officer in the Korean War, and a registered nurse.
Mary grew up in a small house outside of Little Havana, just blocks from the Flagler Dog Track, with her brother, Bill, and sister, Anastasia. The Barzee siblings attended Miami-Dade public schools and Mary graduated from Coral Gables High.
Mary was featured on Jim DeFede’s MeToo Movement story on Facing South Florida. DeFede said,”The #MeToo movement is going to be a major factor in the 2018/2020 elections. And anyone who doesn’t think so is living in denial.”WATCH ALL
