Marian, Romanian consulate to Philadelphia, and Elena Marian, she was a 1943 graduate of Olney High School where she was active in many extracurricular activities including cheerleading and debate team. Dod went on to attend the University of Pennsylvania, then transferred to University of Arizona where she graduated with a BS in Education. She met the love of her life, Navy Chaplain John C.

They married in June, 1949 and went on to reside in Hulmeville, Drexel Hill, then settled in Swarthmore, PA where they raised their two children, Susan and John, Jr. It was there that she began substitute teaching, and teaching in the Ridley Township School District while fulfilling the duties of a minister's wife at the Swarthmore United Methodist Church.
