Mrs. Browning was born June 17, 1917, in Brooklyn, New York. She completed the 10th grade in high school. She moved to Alaska in 1948, living in Anchorage from 1948 to 1949 before moving to Homer where she lived ever since. She was a member of Grace Baptist Church/Glacierview Baptist Church in Homer. 

The family wrote, "Marion was an avid reader and loved crocheting. She loved to sing, especially Irish songs, popular songs of the 30s, 40s, and 50s, and Gospel hymns. When she saw Homer for the first time she exclaimed, "I love it" and continued to do so for the rest of her life. Her greatest joy came from knowing Jesus Christ as her Lord and Savior, The One she loved and served for over 70 years."

She was preceded in death by her husband, Eugene V. Browning; son in-law, Bobby R. Cude; grandsons, Chase A. Cude and David D. Browning; her parents, George and Emma Wild; siblings, George, Harold, John, Arthur, Evelyn, Dorothy and Eleanor.
