Fury was married to Javier Preciado on December 18,1971. This year marks their 50th anniversary.
Fury worked at Heublein for a number of years along with her brother Ben, sister Mirella and sister-in-law Ene. In 2000, she began maintaining the offices for Michigan State Police. During her working career she befriended many people instantly and maintained lifelong friendships. She always had a smile on her face and loved to praise the Lord for All her Blessings. She enjoyed listening to sermons and worship music, learning about the Bible, being with family who she adored and taking care of her mom. She taught her grandchildren to play Rummikub and always had games and toys for them to play with. She was always so kind, generous, giving, loving and genuine. One of her favorite passages of scripture was Psalm 23 which she found great comfort in.
