She was born in Durham, NC, to the late Jane Tesh DeLuca and Bernard Benjamin DeLuca and was raised in Mayodan, NC. She graduated with honors from Salem College in 1968 and subsequently had a distinguished thirty-year career with Western Electric and AT&T. Mary Alice was then called to the ministry, graduating from Columbia Theological Seminary in 2003 with a Master of Divinity. This was her true passion, ministering to others with her humor, her warmth, her everlasting caring, and her lifelong love of music. Reverend Haynie became the first female pastor of Southport Presbyterian Church in Southport, NC, serving for five years before moving to the Charlotte area to be closer to family, especially her grandchildren. She was a member of Providence Presbyterian Church.
