She played basketball on the Brattleboro Union High School team, graduated in 1939 with honors from BUHS at the age of 16, and spent most of her life in the area. She worked as a ticket clerk during WWII for the Brattleboro Railroad Station from 1943 to 1945, where she enjoyed meeting many interesting people. After getting married in 1946, Marion raised five children and eventually returned to work for and retired from the Holstein Friesian Association.

Every five years, the Secretary of State's Vermont Public Service Award program honors individuals who have served as an elected or appointed local official, or as a fire and rescue worker, for 20 or more years. She was honored to receive the award. Marion had a wonderful sense of humor, and was a voracious reader, a whiz at crossword puzzles, and very interested in genealogy.
