Prior to her marriage, Marie was a telephone operator, but her favorite and most fulfilling job was that as homemaker, caring for her family and home. She took great pride in her home being spotless. She also enjoyed playing euchre and bowling.
Marie was a charter member of Our Lady of Victory Parish where she was a member of the Queen of Heaven Circle, Ladies Council, and sang in the choir.
