|Notes: Marion Henrietta Detwiller was born 22 May 1920 in Imperial, Saskatchewan. Her
parents were Robert Hamilton Detwiller and Lucy Henrietta Shaw. Her older sister
Florence Margaret was born in 1916, and older brother George William in 1917. In
the 1921 Canada census, her family was living in Wood Creek, Last Mountain.
Her father was a farmer. Her younger brother Robert Milton was born in 1930.
Marion writes about her life and family in The Imperial Review [p. 174]. In 1937, she went to a hairdressing school in Saskatoon, run by Mrs. R. Guytar. She stayed on after graduation, then opened her own salon. She went on to work as a hairdresser in Brandon, Manitoba, then in Winnipeg, Manitoba, and finally in Fort William (now Thunder Bay), Ontario.
Marion married Lawrence E. James (Larry) on 9 Aug 1949 in Fort William, Ontario. Larry was a conductor for the Canadian Pacific Railroad. He had two daughters from a prior marriage. Marion and Larry lived in Schreiber, Ontario for several years, and had three children, born in Terrace Bay, Ontario. The family moved to Brandon, Manitoba, where their fourth child was born. They moved to The Pas, Manitoba, where Marion again had her own salon. The couple separated in 1964, and Marion moved back to Imperial, Saskatchewan, with the children. They were divorced about 1966.
Marion moved again, to Fort Nelson, British Columbia, where she worked as a desk clerk for the Fort Nelson Motor Hotel. She returned to Imperial, and married Fredrick Anhorn (Fred) on 10 Jul 1981. Fred died 21 Sep 1989.
Marion married Emil Anhorn, Fred's oldest brother, on 5 May 1992. His death date is unknown. According to Fischers Funeral Services, Salmon Arm, British Columbia, Marion died 27 Mar 2012. She is probably buried in the Imperial Cemetery, Imperial, Saskatchewan, with her sister Florence, where a shared headstone was waiting for her.
