The daughter of Joseph McCloskey and Zita Gogarty McCloskey, she was born February 17, 1914, in New Orleans, Louisiana. She was preceded in death by seven siblings - four sisters: Helen McCloskey Graham, Marion Macdiarmid, Geraldine McCloskey, and Mary Anna McCloskey; and three brothers: Joseph McCloskey, Jr., Patrick McCloskey, and Hugh McCloskey. She is survived by many devoted nieces and nephews. Sister Marie graduated from the Academy of the Sacred Heart in New Orleans after which she attended the Ursuline College, earning her BA in English from Loyola University.

Sr. Marie taught in Ursuline Schools in Galveston, San Antonio, and Laredo, Texas; Decatur and Alton, Illinois; and New Orleans, Louisiana.
