Marion worked as one of the "Rosie the Riveter" production workers for Hughes Tool in Houston during WWII, where she also met her future husband. When she and Monroe moved to Texarkana, she worked as a homemaker until her youngest child started school, at which time she entered Texarkana College. She spent many years working as a bookkeeper for Porter-McClure Company in Texarkana before retiring. Upon her husband's death she returned to her original home place in Woodglen Community. She loved reading, especially the Bible, and taught Sunday School for many years at Central Baptist Church in Texarkana.
