Marjorie was born at the family home on September 7, 1941 in Buffalo, MN to the late Gilbert and Lenora (Bolduc) Mattson. She grew up in Chatham Township and attended country school until 8th grade, then switching to school in town. When she was in 10th grade, she quit school to take care of her ailing mother. She went on later to proudly obtain her GED and complete a program as a medical assistant. She worked at Tonka for many years and later in life worked as a cook for Ebenezer and Kensington Nursing Homes. She was a member of the American Legion and the V.F.W.

She enjoyed being around people and especially loved spending time with her family, her kids and grandkids being her greatest joy.
