"Marie" was born on December 9, 1927 at St. Ignatius to Ben and Anna (Saggau) Detert. After graduating from Mission High School in 1946, Marie received her nurses training in California.

Marie became well known at the Missoula Farmer's Market as the "Trout Lady", where she sold fish and produce from the Detert Family Farm.
Marie was a devoted Sister and Aunt, and was actively involved in the care of her family members. She loved people, and loved to laugh. She enjoyed many hobbies including fishing, mushroom hunting, wildlife photography and huckleberry picking. She also loved to crochet and share the results of her talents with her family and friends. Marie also liked to spend time with her friends attending the bingo games in the valley.
