She graduated from Shortridge High School in 1944. On July 22, 1945 Marian married the love of her life, Allan L. Smith. Together they raised four children: Gary, Jay, Stanton, and Julia.

After Allan and her retired they moved to Rocky Fork Lake outside of Rockville, Indiana where they enjoyed the good life. Marian enjoyed her sewing and quilting and an occasional cold beer. Allan loved working in his wood working shop. In 1999 they returned to Zionsville and into a Garden Home at the Meadows.
