I'm afraid some of the other answers are wrong. It is correct to say "a friend of Mary's" and it is NOT correct to say "a friend of Mary." Please note: http://ilearnenglish.hubpages.com/hub/double_possessi ve You need the possessive, which is why you say a friend of mine, not a friend of me. Whoever told you that was wrong.
