Marianne was born and raised in Akron, Ohio and graduated from Akron South High School in 1948. She was a resident of Dormont for 57 years. She worked at B.F. Goodrich in Akron, Ohio prior to being married in 1955 and then moved to Pittsburgh in 1957. Upon arriving in Pittsburgh in 1957, she could not believe how narrow downtown Pittsburgh streets were when compared to the streets in her hometown of Akron, Ohio.

For many years, she was a volunteer election worker in Dormont, and she loved meeting the voters each election. When her children attended Dormont's Hillsdale School she volunteered to bake cookies for class parties.
