Marion was born to Lloyd Henry McCammon and Zola Mae McVay in Polk Township, Benton County, Iowa, on Aug. 31, 1929. She moved with her parents and brother, Richard, to Waterloo, Iowa, at a very young age, then to Santa Ana, Calif., where she attended elementary school, junior high and Santa Ana High School. She also attended Santa Ana Junior College.
Marion married James W. Connor in Santa Ana, Calif., on June 30, 1950. After their marriage, they moved to Billings, Mont. They were blessed with two wonderful children, Tamara (Edward) Lorenz and Daniel Connor.

She served as president of the Local Chapter of Legal Secretaries and also as the State President of Legal Secretaries for several years. She served on the regional board, Disciples of Christ, and on the Sage Tower Board. Up until a week before her passing, Marion worked as the administrative assistant at First Christian Church in Billings. She said many times that this was not a job, but a joy.
