On October 11, 1946, Marie was united in marriage to Kenneth Madison Arington in Kansas City, Missouri. Marie worked at the YWCA on Sycamore and 3rd Street for 24 years, retiring as a building supervisor. She was a member of the Women of the Moose and St. Mary's Catholic Church. She loved gardening and sewing, and promoting a patriotic appreciation of the service men and women. Most of all Marie dearly loved spending time with her family. Marie was known by her family and friends as Mary Goose and for always being able to make something spectacular out of little or nothing.
Marie will be deeply missed by her two daughters, Susan K. Cowles of Muscatine and Anita Wingerter and her husband, Bernie of Keokuk, Iowa; nine grandchildren; eighteen great-grandchildren; one brother, Benjamin "Benji" Prado and his wife, Doreen of Blanco, New Mexico; and several nieces and nephews.
