She grew up in DeWitt, IA and later earned her Master's degree in Library Science. She was a reference librarian and tenured at full professor and professor emeritus at The Ohio State University. Marjorie loved to read and she enjoyed researching her family's genealogy. She was very intellectually curious.

When her grandchildren were younger, she spent hours putting on puppet shows for them, using handmade marionettes that she inherited from her mother. Marjorie also enjoyed painting landscapes. She was passionate about decorating for each season or event. She was a caring and giving mother and grandmother. Marjorie was a proud Ohio State fan and season ticket holder from 1975-2017.
