Marie was born on September 9, 1924 to Paul and Antoinette (Shaw) Simons of Fort Dodge. Attending country school through grade 8, Marie graduated from Dow City High School where she participated in orchestra, basketball, and cheerleading. She met her future husband when he tied her dress bow to her desk. Marie and Glenn Cue married at the Dow City Methodist Church on December 4, 1943. During WWII she served as a railroad telegrapher, viewing nearly non-stop troop trains. Following Glenn’s Naval service, the couple raised children Dennis, David, and Julie Ann.
Together the active couple enjoyed square dancing, cards, music, golf, family camping (Marie slept in the car) and grandchildren’s activities. Marie created beautiful needlework and delicious homemade pies – Glenn’s favorite dessert. While employed by Webster City Schools, she was honored with a high school yearbook dedication. A personalized depot museum bench was donated in appreciation of the couple’s community railroad sharing efforts. In retirement, Marie and Glenn were 30-year snowbirds to Florida, Texas and Arizona.
