Marietta Margaret was born June 2, 1935 on a farm in Sand Creek Township near Jordan, MN, to Lorenz and Margaret (Wick) Pauly. Marietta’s mother died when Marietta was only 13 years old, so Marietta helped raise her four brothers. On May 4, 1955 Marietta married George Vohnoutka at St. Joe Catholic Church in Jordan, MN.

Marietta was a member of St. Leonard Catholic Church and their ladies aid, former President of V.F.W. Auxiliary, and a member of Red Hats. In her younger years she enjoyed playing softball.
