She grew up in Chicago until her family relocated to Green Bay's West Side when she was 15 years old. She eventually graduated from Green Bay West High School in 1948. She was then heavily pursued by Michael Maloney who thought she was "The most beautiful girl in the world" which she married in January of 1950. They raised seven beautiful children together. She spent her life raising her family and eventually worked for 22 years as "the famous" greeter at Walmart East.

She started a Bridge Club with Pat Atkinson and many of her close friends. She was a former member of the Altar Society for Holy Cross Parish, 4-H Leader, CCD, and the PTA. In her spare time she enjoyed Interior Decorating, shopping and entertaining with her beloved grandchildren. Marian will be remembered as an elegant, beautiful, and well dressed lady, who was known for her many hats.
