Marion was born Feb. 11, 1929, to Anna (Garbe) and Louis Ammon at their farm north of Lane. Marion was baptized and confirmed into the Lutheran faith in Lane.  She attended grade school at the Heller School and graduated high school at Wessington Springs.

In 1964, Marion began her 40-year career of driving school bus for the Lane, Woonsocket and Wessington Springs school districts. When Lane consolidated, she drove for Wessington Springs until she retired in 2004.
