They were married six months later, driving cross country on their honeymoon and settling in Brookings, where they worked for his parents, WG and Estella Hoagland in their lily business for a short time. Jesse built their home on the banks of the Chetco River where they raised their three daughters. Marjorie was active in the Star of the Sea Catholic church, she worked at the Curry Coastal Pilot for many years and helped raise funds for the Chetco Community Public Library.
