She graduated from the Northern Kentucky State Vocational School of Practical Nursing in 1968 and became a Licensed Practical Nurse.  

On November 9, 1973, Marg married Ron Tanner and they had almost 50 years of a beautiful life together. Marg was a homemaker while her children were young. As her children got older, she worked as an LPN for 15 years at Booth Hospital in Florence. She also worked as a medical transcriber for 19 years with Good Samaritan Hospital until she retired in 2012.
