History

Born Mary Sandra Campbell, on December 5, 1954 to Samuel and Deanna Campbell. She kept extensive journals.[1]. Mary traveled around with her family, learning the hunting trade until they ended up in Lawrence, Kansas.

On March 23, 1972 after seeing the film Slaughterhouse-Five, Mary bumped into John Winchester, knocking him down. While Mary was embarrassed, John simply laughed it off, and told her she could get him a cup coffee to make it up to him. The two would go to Mulroney's Diner and talk. When John asked for Mary's number, she gave it to him, despite knowing her father wouldn't approve.

In 1973, after Azazel killed John, Mary made a deal with in order to resurrect him. This involved her granting him access to her home ten years hence. On August 19, 1975 Mary and John eloped, in Reno. Five years later Mary would give birth to Dean on January 24, 1979, with Sam following on May 2, 1983. Dean remembers her making tomato and rice soup for him when he was sick, and singing "Hey, Jude" to him as a lullaby.[2] Despite how John talked about Mary to Sam and Dean, there were indications that there marriage was not entirely happy[3], and that Heaven may have been involved in bringing them together, in order for Dean and Sam to be born.[4] Unbeknownst to John, Mary did keep hunting after they were married, until at elast a year after Dean was born [5].

Six months after Sam's birth, Azazel visit Sam to feed him demon blood. When Mary tries to stop him, he kills her. She was 29. An unknown uncle erected a headstone for her in Greenville, Illinois. Sam later learned that the uncle, along with many of Mary's other family and friends were killed by Azazel after her death [6]

After the death of John, Sam and Dean would bury his dog tags at Mary's grave. 33 years later, as he was about to face Amara, Dean told Sam that he wanted his ashes scattered at Mary's grave.[7]

Mary was bought back to life in 2016 by Amara, in a gesture of thanks to Dean.

Apocrypha

In Origins 4, it is related that in February 1979, John and Mary go rafting in the Grand Canyon while on their honeymoon. Their raft flips, and John nearly drowns until Mary saves him. That night, Dean is conceived. This is obviously at odds with the canonical timeline which has Dean born in January 24, 1979.

Mary appears in a flashback in the Supernatural spin-off novel Supernatural: Heart of the Dragon, where she and her parents first defeat a fire-demon known as the Heart of the Dragon in 1969. A teenager at this time, Mary flirts with a San Francisco hunter, and it is implied that they have had sex. The hunter was spared from going to Vietnam because of an injured foot, with Mary affirming that the angle of the wound makes it impossible for the wound to be self-inflicted. Reference is also made to her being friends with a local mechanic, who may or may not be John Winchester.
