Marie and her husband Dan owned and operated a beer distributor in Southwest Philadelphia for many years.

Marie also secured many a bridesmaids their gowns and accessories. She also many years orchestrated a fund raiser for Archbishop Ryan School for the deaf, having a fashion show held at Palumbo's in South Philadelphia. Marie also volunteered in helping with parish carnivals at St. Barnabas in Southwest Philadelphia and St. Dorthy's in Drexel Hill.
