She was born in East Dorset on Aug. 28, 1921, the daughter of Walter and Lucille (Fullam) Grout, and attended local school. Marian worked as a waitress for many years and was employed as a private caretaker. She was grand master for the state of Vermont Grange and was a former grandmaster and member of the Mount Equinox Grange.

She also cherished times spent with her family. She was a member of the Harned-Fowler VFW Post 6471 Ladies Auxiliary, the Fraternal Order of Eagles, Battenkill Valley Aerie 2551 and the Rebbakah Lodge.

She married Howard Thompson in East Dorset in September 1938. Mr. Thompson died in 1974.
