She worked as a teacher and after marrying the love of her life, Anton Majeri Jr, in 1970, she left the teaching profession for several years to focus on motherhood. She returned to teaching second grade at Hawthorn School District in Vernon Hills, Illinois for 25 plus years until her retirement.

Marilyn and Tony retired to Fort Myers, Florida in 2006 where they spent many happy years in retirement.
