Marion was born on May 4, 1929, in Appleton the daughter of the late Harold and Rose Wurm. Marion married James Burrows on June 12, 1948, and they lived in a small trailer court behind Memorial Florist on Gardeners Row. A year after the 3rd son was born, the trailer was getting crowded so they bought a lot and built a house in Menasha. The family then increased with two more sons, and they have lived there ever since. Marion enjoyed being a den mother when the boys were in Cub Scouts and she loved playing bridge. She was very proud when she became a life master and taught bridge at the YMCA. After retirement, they enjoyed traveling with friends and family, which included many countries. Marion and Jim have been members of the Whiting Community Baptist Church for over 70 years.
