Marian was the superintendent of the Plainwell High School lunch programs, before retiring after 17 years in a job she truly loved. Her church membership was at Hope Reformed, where she faithfully attended when she was able.

Marian was preceded in death by her husband, son Bill, his wife Linda, and her daughter Judy. She leaves behind her son Ralph and Priscilla Zuidema, Jack and Joanne Zuidema, and son in-law Dennis Gaulden.
