Throughout her lifetime, Marie held several jobs, besides being a homemaker, which included waitressing, Munsingwear, School for the Deaf in Faribault, American Greeting Cards at White Mart, also in Faribault, and would do alternations on clothing for people.

She was well known for playing cards, crocheting intricate doilies and book markers, baking and always having a pot of coffee ready for company, her delicious Vomacka and Booyah and playing her guitar and singing country western music and hymns, and making and donating caps for the Veterans. But most of all, she was very dedicated to her family of many pets, dogs, cats, and birds, which she loved dearly.
