She grew up in Salt Lake City, graduated from South High School, attended LDS Business College and served an LDS mission in the Central States. In 1948, she was married for time and all eternity to her long-time sweetheart, Macoy McMurray in the Salt Lake Temple. Marjorie revered her parents and all her progenitors. She diligently searched their records and became acquainted with them. She was the mother of seven. Unmentioned by name but deeply loved, are so many from other countries and places who came into the home and international family of herself and her husband's. She loved music, flowers, birds, and all that is beautiful. She was a devoted member of the LDS church and had a deep testimony of God, the Eternal Father, and in His Son, Jesus Christ, and in the restoration of the gospel. Her love of the Savior was evident through her unconditional love for others. She served faithfully in every auxiliary of the Church.
