Mary's friend.
Answer #2 | 22/12 2013 20:01
Mary shouldn't have a possessive "S" at the end. Any friend of Mary, is a friend of mine.
Answer #3 | 22/12 2013 21:47
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_possessive You need the possessive, which is why you say a friend of mine, not a friend of me. Whoever told you that was wrong.
