After high school she went to telegraph school for a short while before taking a job working for Western Union.
Marjorie was united in marriage to Willard Seifert on July 3, 1946. The family made their home in Wahpeton where they raised their children. Marjorie and Willard ran Seifert’s Jewelry for 56 years. Marjorie would work with customers that came in while Willard would fix watches and work on other jewelry in the back.
