She was born April 7, 1926 in Crosby, the daughter of Lester and Blanche (Robinson) Hughes. She graduated from Crosby-Ironton High School in 1944.

On July 14, 1946, Marjorie was united in marriage to Dilton W. Johnson in Crosby. Dilton was a career member of the U.S. Air Force which meant the couple relocated many times.

In 1956, the family moved to Beausejour, Manitoba, Canada and lived there until 1960. He was then transferred to Wadena, MN. His final assignment was in Grand Forks, ND where he retired. After Dilton's retirement, they settled in Wadena, MN, where Marjorie worked as a sales clerk at Sears. Dilton preceded her in death on March 21, 1969.
