Marjorie married Joseph Brosnahan on May 26, 1951 at the St. Patrick Catholic Church in Dunlap. Five children were born to their union.

Marjorie prided herself on being a homemaker and raising her children. She loved to entertain visitors and always welcomed them with home baked treats. Marge and Joe were members of multiple dance clubs and enjoyed playing cards with anyone who stopped by their home. Marge was a long-time member of the St. Anne Catholic Church in Logan for 64 years and served on their parish council. She was an avid sports fan. Marge regularly cheered for Creighton Basketball, the Kansas City Royals, the Iowa Hawkeyes and the Notre Dame Fighting Irish. Above all, Marjorie cherished her family. In addition to her children and grandchildren she was very close to her brothers, sisters, nephews and nieces.

Marjorie died on June 6, 2020 at Westmont Care Center in Logan, Iowa at the age of 93 years, eight months and 26 days.
