Marion grew up near Little Cottonwood Canyon in Granite, Utah and was an active member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. She loved sharing memories with her family about the adventures she had with her siblings Paul (Beth), Donald (Marilyn), Joyce (Leon) and Viola (Val). Some of her favorite stories included her parents fruit farm, helping her father deliver fruit to neighbors in need, bottling fruits and jams with her mother and playing with cousins and friends in the lily pond, on their property. She loved sharing memories about trips to Lagoon and going downtown to Salt Lake City. She was also so proud to be a Jordan Beet Digger! As a young adult, she worked at Sweets Candy and also worked as a switchboard operator in Midvale.

In 1953 she met the love of her life, Zane Peterson. They were sealed in the Salt Lake Temple for time and all eternity on February 26, 1954. They settled in Taylorsville where they raised their two daughters, Vicky (Alan) and Robin. Marion will be remembered for her quiet service to friends, neighbors and family. She often sent letters and cards in the mail and made phone calls to brighten someone’s day. She was a member of the Relief Society for 72 years and served as a Sunday School teacher for nearly 20 years. She loved gathering her family together for Family Home Evening, singing hymns and having barbecues. Her faith and family meant everything to her.

Marion especially enjoyed spending time with her grandchildren Kelly (Renee) and Stephanie (Corey) and great-grandchildren (Weldon, Porter, Hunter, Titan, Mia, Jackson, and Raegan).
