Mallory simply adored her family and loved spending time with each one of them. She especially loved playing with her nephew, Connor, whom she called her "Little Sunshine;" sushi and yogurt dates with her sisters and conducting highs and lows conversations while at family dinners.

Mallory loved singing, dancing, and being goofy in the car with her sister, Audrey. Mallory was a dreamer and often shared her aspirations and pure love of life with her sister, Emily. And she loved driving through the neighborhood on the golf cart with her brother, Jake, and her cousins. She loved her best friend, Carissa, dearly and shared many sleepovers and making home videos together. Fun playful times were also shared with her dear friends, Mckenzie and Annie.
