Marion’s biggest commitment was to God’s family, and her love for the Lord was evident. When she and Wade moved to Coaldale, Alta., in 1995, they joined the MB church. She served the church in many ways, including as recording secretary. Marion worked as a nurse’s aide, secretary, documentation worker for MCC, and Canadian citizenship course teacher. She was an active member of Girl Guides of Canada. Marion loved travelling, her last trip being to the Philippines, where she visited missionary Larry Thiessen and his family.
