On October 26, 1963, Marguerite married Robert Conrad. The couple began their life together in Kenosha.
Marguerite started her teaching career at Carthage College. She touched many lives as a Spanish teacher at Lance Middle School and later Bradford High School from which she retired in 2009. After retirement, Marguerite volunteered at Hospice Alliance and Prairie Lane Elementary and enjoyed many activities at the Kenosha Senior Center.
Over the years, Marguerite pursued many passions including extensive world travel, art and history and was a member of Wesley Methodist Church. Marguerite’s greatest joys were spending time with her family and friends and visiting the family cabin in northern Wisconsin.
