Mary O’Connor was Hugh Hefner’s longtime secretary, confidant and a constant source of companionship for the Playboy founder and his bunnies. For four full decades and three Hefner marriages, Mary O’Connor earned his trust, friendship and respect until she passed away on January 27th. Hefner well remembers how Mary O’Connor celebrated the holidays in 2010 at the Mansion, referring to her as “Mary passed away today. We loved her more than words could say.”
An ardent jewelry-lover, Mary O’Connor enjoyed the look and feel of gold, especially her assorted necklace collection.
In honor of Mary O’Connor, Crystal Harris, Hefner’s new wife decided to auction off her Romona Keveza Couture gown and shoes, with proceeds benefiting the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.
