Once the children were born, Marilyn decided to stay home and raise them. During those years, she took on other jobs including retail and selling Avon. Once the children had grown, they purchased Shady Beach Supper Club on Lake Cochrane near Gary, SD which they owned and operated for 39 years. Marilyn was the hostess and salad maker. Charles passed away on January 14, 1995. Marilyn moved to the Sylvan Place Nursing Home in Canby in 2017.
