Marian was a graduate of Sweet Springs High School in 1941 and Central Missouri University in 1950. She taught several years, mainly at Concordia and Brookfield. She was a member of the Wheeling Christian Church and a past member of Mothers’ Club. Marian was the quintessential homemaker and family caregiver, preparing meals and yummy desserts from scratch, with the produce of a garden akin to a truck farm. In 2000, Marian and her long-time friend and colleague joined a group tour and traveled to northern Europe, highlighted by a performance of the Passion Play in Oberammergav, Germany.
