Marbury touched so many lives
The more I found out about her, the more my admiration grew.
As a young woman in the 1930s, it seems she bucked the trend of transitioning directly from high school into marriage and family. Mrs. Marbury enrolled at Louisiana Tech University, graduated with a music degree and then continued her education at Louisiana State University. From there, she went on to work for a few years in a South Louisiana city that was a long way from her Lincoln Parish home.
It was in 1943, back in Ruston, that she married the love of her life, William Ardis Marbury.
