They were married on January 27, 1951 at The Little Church of the West and resided in Las Vegas, beginning 66 years of a loving, caring and happy marriage. In November 1953, Jim, Marney and their toddler son moved to Primghar, IA. where they opened a Ford Dealership and proudly served as active business owners in the Primghar community for over 50 years. Marney and Jim were true partners in their business and in their lives. They were both members of The United Methodist Church of Primghar, and Marney was active in many church-related women’s groups. She was also a member of the Eastern Star chapter in Primghar. Their family grew to three children and they were surrounded by many wonderful friends while living in Primghar. In February 2014, Jim and Marney moved to Wayzata, MN to be closer to their children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Marney was preceded in death by her husband, her father, her mother, and her younger brother John M Hinn of Spirit Lake, IA. She is survived and blessed by a large legacy of family including her three children, Jim (wife Patty), Jane (husband Tim) and John (wife Beth), plus 10 grandchildren and 12 great-grandchildren (with another expected in November).
