There she met her husband Allan and was blessed with 54 years of marriage and two children Leonard (1951-1973) and Ellen. Marie enjoyed life on the farm and eventually returned to nursing in Brandon and Erickson. Leisure time was spent reading, playing scrabble, table games, gardening, fishing and spending time with family and friends. Retirement brought many fun winters in Texas. In 2001 Marie and Allan moved to Saskatoon to be closer to Ellen and family. She treasured her family and the many friends she made in each of the addresses they called home.
