She spent her growing years in Colorado Springs, Colorado. She attended Blair Business School and was a secretary for a stock market company in Colorado Springs. She "retired" at age 28 to marry Grady J."Sarge" Phillips after he returned from World War II.

Marjorie and family then returned home to Colorado Springs where she was a supportive and loving spouse, a nurturing and fun mother and grandmother, and a kind and helpful neighbor and friend.
