US Quaker Colleges Alumni Directories and Yearbooks - confusing maiden name

An entry in the alumni directory for Petranoff Mary (Jean) (Jean Huffman), spouse William T (dec). Normally I would key Huffman as the surname, Mary as the given name and Petranoff as the spouse surname, but what do I do with Jean? Shall I ignore it? It seems a bit weird to because if I understand it correctly, her name was Jean Huffman and then when she got married she changed it to Mary Petranoff, so it wouldn't make sense to key her name as Mary Huffman?
