MUSCATINE, Iowa–A Muscatine native born and bred, Corrine Marx has spent her entire life in the city. After attending Garfield School for her elementary years, Marx attended and graduated from Muscatine High School. The first person in her immediate family to graduate from high school, Marx took great pride in her accomplishment. She furthered her education by taking shorthand and typing classes at Muscatine Community College to prepare for secretarial work.
Even after her graduation, Muscatine’s schools continued to play an important role in Marx’s life. For many years, Marx worked as a school secretary. Her late husband, Harold Marx worked for the schools as well, serving as a bus driver.
Outside of work Marx enjoyed staying active in her community. A member of Musserville Methodist Church, Marx got involved with many of their programs and activities. She also enjoyed attending a variety of card clubs. Whenever they both had time off, Corrine and Harold Marx loved traveling together to visit lots of different places.
As the city where she grew up, graduated from high school, met and married her husband, worked, and spent time with close friends and family members for many years, Muscatine has always felt like home to Marx. The city’s natural beauty appeals to her as well, and she has always liked spending time by the riverfront.
Since moving to Bickford Senior Living, Marx has found that many of the things that make the Muscatine community special to her also make the Bickford community special. Marx has found it quite easy to make friends with the close knit group of people who live there and considers its facilities very homey and comfortable.
