Marion was a proud American, born in Philadelphia and raised in Huntingdon Valley. After training as a nurse, her life journey brought her to Canada, where she met Bill and chose to establish her family and nursing career in Ontario. That career included time working at Victoria Hospital (London), McMaster University Medical Centre (Hamilton), Carveth Care Centre, Hotel Dieu Hospital (Kingston), and Brockville General Hospital. She was an active member of the Gananoque branch of the Beta Sigma Phi sorority, and in retirement, she was involved in the Meals on Wheels program in Gananoque.
