Living most of her life in Lincoln, NE, Marie graduated from Lincoln High School in 1942. She also attended Lincoln School of Commerce in business.



Centering her life on children, Marie was a member of PTA boards for Pershing, Robin Mickle and Lincoln Northeast High Schools. A Girl Scout leader for all three daughters, Marie was instrumental in running a swimming program for the Girl Scouts in Northeast Lincoln. She was also a Sunday School Superintendent for Northeast Lincoln Community Church for a number of years. She was inducted into the Nebraska Bowling Hall of Fame and served on the LWBA, where she enjoyed helping with fundraising for the Veterans Hospital.

Private services will be held at a later date.
