Marion was also well known for her love of playing in the Minnesota lottery. It was nothing for her to take many trips a day to town just to buy a scratch ticket for entertainment. One day in April 2001 she scratched off a word puzzle and had one $20,000. She was super excited. She will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved her.
