Marie had a remarkable work ethic and held various jobs throughout her life. She had a compassionate heart and often provided shelter for those in need, taking in strays (people, not animals).

In addition to her career, Marie had a range of hobbies and talents. She was an exceptional cook, baker, seamstress, organist, pianist, flute player. She participated in many plays in the community. At times she was in the orchestra, other times acting in the play. She was involved in baseball and softball with her children, as well as playing herself. Marie was an active member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saint. She held many callings in the church. Girls camp was one of her favorite callings, she went many times.
Marie is survived by her loving husband of 44 years, Bruce Soelberg (her eternal companion), and her seven children: Daniel, David, Karen (Larry), Dean (Kristie), Dennis, Krista (Jason), and extra son Jeff (Jessica) Butler. She was preceded in death by her parents, Ella and Arnold Maughan, her brother Mark Maughan, her son Douglas Bell, her granddaughter Abigail Sandberg, and her great-granddaughter Grace Tillack. Marie is also survived by her younger siblings: Harrison (Pat) Maughan, Rebecca (DelRoy) Olson, Wade Maughan, and Catherine (Van) Anderson.

And last but not least her best friend of 60+ years, Cheryl Barrus.
