She spent most of her youth between Blacksburg, Charlottesville and Thomasville, North Carolina. Marian moved to Farmville in 1950 after her graduation and began her first career job as a Home Demonstration Agent where she made countless friends and met her true love Frank Baldwin. Frank and Marian married in February of 1952 and had 3 sons. Marian loved her family, her friends, and her church. She enjoyed sewing, playing cards, and watching Virginia Tech play on TV.
