She accomplished this by being a wonderful example of who Jesus is, and the support of a loving church community. She married Donald Pohl on November 23, 1985 and they enjoyed 39 years of marriage. Marion made custom draperies from home while her children were young and then worked as an inspector at Husco Corporation until her retirement in 1999 when she and Don moved to Almond, WI, to care for his aging parents. Marion enjoyed reading, gardening, quilting, traveling, and spending time with her children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. She also enjoyed many friendships.
