While in Phoenix, Marsha worked in retail service at Sears. In 1976, they returned to Minot, where she worked at Stevenson’s department store.

Marsha was a marvelous cook. She competed in chili-cook offs for several years, winning the state chili cook off in the late 1980’s which allowed her to compete nationally. She enjoyed spending time with friends at her cabin Strawberry Lake, gardening, and grilling outside.
