Gilbert and Marlys ran registered Hereford cattle which Marlys and her sisters began as a 4-H project. They also raised Columbia and Hampshire sheep. The cattle herd was one of Marlys’ lifetime interests and has been recognized by the American Hereford Association with the “Dams of Distinction” award for outstanding Hereford cattle. She was a faithful steward of her family’s land and livestock.

Marlys’ other interests included gardening and raising flowers. She raised test roses for Jackson and Perkins and was honored by selecting the name for a rose she named “Hawaii.”

Because of her faith, Marlys always believed that everything would work out for the best. She supported several Christian missions. Marlys and Gilbert were baptized into Christ on June 26, 1977.
