Marilyn attended hairstyling school and operated a hairstyling business out of her home. She was a lifelong sports fan. In her younger days, Marilyn played softball and enjoyed league bowling. In 1975, Marilyn and her bowling team participated in a national tournament that was held in Milwaukee, Wis.
Marilyn was an avid fan of the Minnesota Vikings and was disappointed by their recent 4-point loss to the Dallas Cowboys.
