Marion was born on April 30, 1929, in Brooklyn, to Matthew and Florence (known as Babe) Judge. She was the oldest of three girls. Marion grew up in Carroll Gardens where she was a parishioner at St. Mary Star of the Sea Roman Catholic Church. Marion was a graduate of St. Alphonsus High School, Manhattan. Throughout her life she worked in various secretarial capacities while managing to raise four loving children. Among her hobbies were reading (murder mysteries and science fiction), singing (Dean Martin, Patsy Cline, and Engelbert Humperdinck), dancing, and generally, having a good time. She possessed a sharp wit matched by an even sharper sense of style and glamour.
