Marion was born and raised on a small farm just north of Kindersley Saskatchewan. After graduating from high school, Marion moved north to North Battleford Saskatchewan, where she worked as an operator for the Telephone company.
With the arrival of her first son in 1953, Marion became a housewife, and raised her two sons. With Glenn working in the Oil patch, Marion and Glenn spent the first several years of their marriage moving around small town Alberta such as Legal, Leduc, Lacombe, before settling in Red Deer Alberta in 1959. Marion continued to live in Red Deer until 2012, when she moved to Winnipeg, where she stayed until her passing. Marion loved to play cards and other games such as bowling. While in her 80's, Marion was able to maintain a +200 league bowling average
