Following the war, she worked as a dental assistant where she met and married Paul, a sailor in the US Navy. They traveled and lived in many places during their tenure with the military, during which Marjorie attended Omaha Community College where she received her Practical Nursing Degree. Following Paul's military retirement, they decided to settle in Grundy Center where Marjorie worked at the Grundy Hospital for 10 years. After retirement, they spent winters in Arizona keeping busy with friends, family, church, volunteer work, and a little golf. She was an amazing lady.
