Do not fill this in!===Legacy=== In lieu of her body, Mary's uncle put up [[Mary's grave|a headstone]] to commemorate her in Greenville, Illinois, where he presumably lived. [[Sam Winchester|Sam]] and [[Dean Winchester|Dean]] never met her uncle. They visited her headstone in "[[Children Shouldn't Play With Dead Things]]" and later in "[[Alpha and Omega]]." After Mary's death, [[Azazel]] killed all of her remaining family, friends, and even acquaintances, such as her doctor, to hide his deal with her. Because her family and anyone associated with them died, Sam and Dean did not learn that their mother used to be a hunter until early in [[Season 4]]. The memory of Mary and her death drove the remaining Winchester family to become hunters in order to track down and kill Azazel to avenge her. John continued to grieve for her even decades later, confessing in "[[Salvation]]" that he wanted her back. Dean's wish in "[[What Is And What Should Never Be]]" is for Mary to have never died, but he chooses to wake himself up from his dream when he realizes that a [[djinn]] has poisoned him in order to feed off of him until he dies. Dean avenged her at the end of the [[Season 2|second season]] when he killed Azazel with [[the Colt]]. When undergoing demon blood detox in "[[When the Levee Breaks]]", a feverish Sam [[Hallucination|hallucinates]] her reassuring him that he is doing the right thing in drinking blood to kill [[Lilith]]. Enemies of the Winchesters have been known to use the family's love and grief for Mary against them: besides the example of the djinn above, [[Zachariah]] used an illusion of Mary to make her sons suffer by manipulating their emotions in "[[Dark Side of the Moon]]", and in "[[Mommy Dearest]]" [[Eve]] assumed her shape to make a point about her love for her monstrous children. For years after Mary's death, her ghost haunted [[The Winchester House|the house]] she'd died in. Her death and Azazel's temporary presence drew a powerful, violent [[Poltergeists|poltergeist]] to the house. [[File:MaryGhost.jpg|thumb|left|220px|Mary's ghost sacrifices herself to save her sons.]] Mary's last chronological appearance as herself was in the [[Season 1]] episode ''[[Home]]'', in which Sam's premonition led her sons back to their childhood home to hunt the poltergeist terrorizing the family currently living in the home. When the poltergeist tried to kill Sam, her ghost manifested, first as a flaming humanoid figure that walked out of the closet of the room that used to be Sam's nursery. She apologized to him for allowing Azazel to feed him blood. She confronted the poltergeist, telling it to leave her house and let go of her son, before she sacrificed herself to banish the poltergeist from the house. What became of her [[soul]] afterward is unknown: the [[psychic]] [[Missouri Moseley]] believed that she ceased to exist and [[Ash]] later tells Sam and Dean that he had not found her in [[Heaven]]. However it has been revealed that destroyed ghosts do in fact still move on to their destined resting places and perhaps Mary and John simply do not want to be found.
