She was the daughter of Herman Sr. and Dena (Hayunga) Aalfs. Marian was baptized as an infant and later confirmed in her faith at Bethany Reformed Church in Clara City.

This union was blessed with three sons, Ronald, Marlyn and Jerrell. They lived and farmed for 40 years in Rheiderland Township until moving to their new home in Clara City in 1979. Marian worked at the Bunte Candy Factory in Chicago, Illinois while Egbert was in the Army during World War II. Marian was a housewife and mother. She was a Sunday School teacher and active in the Ladies’ Circle at Bethany Reformed Church. Marian enjoyed sewing, crocheting, and doing word searches. Each of her grandchildren received a crocheted baby blanket, afghan and a set of embroidered dish towels. Most of all, Marian cherished the time she could spend with her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren.
