Marie was a stay at home mom where she raised her four children, then went to work and retired from Board of Pardons and Paroles. Her children kept her busy with three daughters and one son doing things from softball, volleyball, baseball, Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts in which she had a big hand in starting the first Girl Scout group in Freeport in 1963. She was a member of the Pythian lodge of Houston. She was a member most of her life at the First Baptist Church in Freeport till she moved and became an active member of the First Baptist Church in Jones Creek.
