The family moved to Spokane, where she graduated from Rogers High School. Marge went on to work at Jensen Byrd where she met and then married Maurice (Heinie) Heitstuman. Moving to the Spokane Valley, they ran the Millwood Hardware Store for many years. Marge was remarried in 1976 to Norbert (Norby) Austing, where they also resided in the Spokane Valley.
