Marie and her younger siblings grew up on the family farm near Leola. She married Bruce McIntire at St. James Lutheran Church in Leola on May 21, 1967.

She honed her secretarial skills over a 50-year span beginning with the McPherson County Extension Service in 1963 and concluding with the Schmidt, Schroyer, Moreno and Lee law firm in Pierre in 2013. With initiation by her mother at a young age, Marie became a skilled seamstress and cook. She also enjoyed baking and canning.

Her favorite activities included reading, first to her children and then to her grandchildren; playing Scrabble or cards, and walking. She was an active member of Faith Lutheran Church from the time of her marriage until her death. When her children were young she served as a Sunday school teacher for several years and later as an adult Bible study leader.
