Marcia was a 1962 graduate of Sherburn High School. Upon graduation, she started working at N.S.P. in Minneapolis. This is where she met her future husband. On December 6, 1969, she was married to John Peterson at St. Luke’s Catholic Church. To this union, their daughter Christina was born.
Marcia enjoyed the Minnesota Twins, collecting Betty Boop and Coca Cola memorabilia, her time spent at Canterbury Downs, playing 500, eating prime rib and drinking Coke. She was well known for filling birthday cards with confetti which became a long-standing family joke.
