Marie married Leo R. Mulder on May 29, 1954. Marie and Leo purchased and moved to their farm just outside of Sheboygan Falls in October 1958.  Marie, with her being raised on a farm, greatly assisted in supporting the farm operation while Leo worked in his full-time day factory job at Kohler Company.   In her valued homemaker role, she always willingly provided for her family and met their wide-ranging needs, grew a large garden with rows and rows of a large variety of vegetables that she canned for her family with her mother as her partner.  Marie also worked outside the home at Paper Box, Co. and Kohler Co., and seasonal jobs at Walgreens Restaurant and Larson Canning Company.
