This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Born in San Francisco, CA on July 7, 1900.  Mary was the granddaughter of Comstock Lode silver king James Flood.  She studied at the ASL in NYC and in Paris at Académie Colarossi under Antoine Bourdelle who had been Rodin's assistant. 

Flood was active in San Francisco in the 1920s and maintained a studio in her home at 1940 Vallejo Street.  Working in bronze, she created busts, animals, garden compositions, football players, and heroic statues. 

In 1930 she wed banker Theodore Stebbins and stopped sculpting.  In 1932 the couple settled on Long Island, NY where Mrs. Stebbins remained until her death in Muttontown on Aug. 11, 1987.

This biography from the Archives of AskART:
The following information is from Theodore E. Stebbins Jr., son of the artist, and is a correction to the biography by Edan Hughes, which refers to his mother as having "stopped sculpting" from 1930 when she married banker, Theodore Stevens. 

The corrected information is that "In 1932 the couple settled on Long Island, NY where Mrs. Stebbins remained until her death in Muttontown on Aug. 11, 1987.  She was active until her death, making figurative garden and fountain pieces, as well as portrait busts and portrait reliefs.

She signed her work "M.E. Flood." Her best-known works are the four polychrome figures of saints in the altar of the Nativity Chapel at Grace Cathedral in San Francisco."
