She was born in Cleveland Township, Le Sueur County, Minnesota on April 10, 1924 to Chester Flowers and Irma (Reinhardt) Flowers.

Al and Marilyn lived on the family farm in Le Sueur County from 1945 to 1971, when they became partners in Le Center Construction and moved to Le Center, where they were until their retirement in 1985.
