Following the conclusion of their marriage, she wed Raymond P. Seekell of Raynham. Stephen and Raymond both passed away before she did.
In the 1960s, Marion worked as a certified nursing assistant at the Colonial Cottage Nursing Home in Middleborough. In the 1970s, she was employed at the Woolworths Store, first working behind the counter where she served those wonderful ice cream sundaes and then working her way up to an office position at the Dedham location. Marion wore many hats. After getting sick of the trip, Marion got a job as a bookkeeper at B&H Auto in Middleborough. She then got a job at the Dorothy Egg Farm in the late 1980s. Both jobs were in the bookkeeping field.
