People You Should Know - Farell

♠    Mary Jane Farell  (1920 - 2015)   ♣ 

Mary Jane Farell, building on a childhood fascination with bridge, crafted an all-star career that includes four world championships and election to the ACBL Hall of Fame in 1998. Born in Cincinnati OH, she would spend weekday afternoons after school kibitzing when her mother hosted rubber bridge games in their home. She was introduced to duplicate at age 17 while living in Los Angles. She progressed to became a formidable competitor on the national scene.

Ferrell and teammate Dorothy Truscott were the first two American women to earn the rank of World Grand Master, the World Bridge Federation’s highest ranking. Farell earned the rank by winning the 1966 World Mixed Pairs, the 1970 World Women’s Pairs, and the 1978 Venice Cup. She added the World Women’s Team Olympiad crown in 1980. In 1978 she and Marilyn Johnson became the first women to win the ACBL six-session Life Master Pairs — At the time of her Hall of Fame induction in 1998 they remained the only women’s pair to have their names engraved on the von Zedtwitz Gold Cup. In 1964, the Los Angeles Times named Farell “Woman of the Year” in recognition of her gaining first place among women in the all-time masterpoint rankings. 

Farell began teaching after World War II. “Women used to call me up and ask for advice on bidding, play of the hand, defense — whatever. Then groups of women would get together at one home and hire me to teach them.” Her professional playing began in much the same way. “People made me a pro. They offered to pay for babysitters and card fees, and they would pick me up and transport me to the tournaments.“It’s really nice to have a hobby that turned into a living. I feel very fortunate. Bridge has been good for me and to me.”
