Marian was born in Clintonville on Oct. 30, 1930, to James and Charlotte (Carpenter) Conlon. She graduated from Clintonville High School.

She married Edward O. Pauly on July 2, 1949, in Milwaukee. They liked being owners of several taverns in the rural Town of Maine (in between Shiocton and Leeman), Black Creek and Bonduel.

Marian was fortunate to find her beloved partner, Earl K. Schmolinske. They were active members of Peace United Church of Christ in Shawano. They were fond of taking guided group bus tours and also following the Mollie B Polka Band. They shared many happy years of traveling together before his passing on Nov. 7, 2020.
