Marion was born in Calgary on February 6, 1929. At the age of three, she moved with her family to a farm in the Masinasin area. In 1951, she married Mike Angyal, Jr. Together they farmed east of Milk River, owned a vehicle dealership, and later set up an electrical business. Marion loved to sew for her six daughters, her grandchildren as well as enjoyed crocheting, knitting, cross-stitch and ceramics. Her family have many cherished crafts made with love by her hands.

For many years, Marion played contract bridge and was an active member of the Catholic Women’s League and the Border Ham Radio Club. Though she and Mike enjoyed spending their summers at the cabin they built on Echo Lake and their winters as “snowbirds”, they were always happiest at home close to their family who will miss her deeply.
