In 1952, she earned a BA degree in education from Bob Jones University and taught school in Alaska and Massachusetts. In 1963, she earned an MA degree in reading education from Boston University.
For many years, she and her family lived in Concord, Massachusetts. While there, Marion was an active member at Grace Chapel in Lexington, Massachusetts. In 2004 she and her husband moved to the Sonoran desert in Arizona. Her church home in Arizona was Trinity Bible Church in Sun City West until her health made attending difficult. She drew strength from her Christian faith throughout her life.
