She was united in marriage to Duane Jensen on May 21, 1952 in Bristol. The couple made their home in Bristol for a short time and moved to Roslyn when Duane returned from the service.

Other places of residence included Watertown, SD and Morris, MN until they settled in Webster, SD in 1982. Both Duane and Margie worked at Mike’s Jack & Jill in Webster until their retirement in 1993.
