Marie was born August 8, 1922 to Rolvin and Mary (Bradley) Coon. She was born in a house in Boyne City and it was Boyne City she lived in her entire life. She graduated from BCHS in 1941 and on April 6, 1942 she married her high school sweetheart Woody Everest. They were married 76 years before Woody’s passing in 2018.

Growing up Marie helped with the family business, The City Dairy. Marie’s first job was as a secretary for the Boyne City Chamber of Commerce, but soon traded that in to raise her two children Nancy and Johnny.
