She was born in Toronto on 30 July 1950 to Ruth and Bruce Newman, the youngest of three sisters.

Her best friend growing up was Judy Poirier.

Education and career

Mary Ann obtained an undergraduate degree in Home Economics. She then went to Teacher's College.

At age 27, in September 1977, she moved to Thunder Bay, Ontario, and started teaching at Sir Winston Churchill High School. There she found in a colleague her future husband, Ron Currie.

By the end of two years she had had enough and in an anecdote made famous by its retelling on the radio, after a "jock" spat in the spaghetti she was teaching them how to make, she decided to go to law school.

At age 29, she started Law School at Western in September 1979. She did some part-time teaching at Ryerson to help pay her expenses during law school. She graduated after three years, the standard length of time, in Spring 1982, just prior to giving birth to her first child, Michael Currie, on 8 June 1982.
