When he was 15 years old, Mark started work in N.Z. Railways at Dunedin and in 1933, he married Timaru-born Sarah Davie. Sarah was the third child and eldest daughter of the family of nine children born to Kate & Robert Davie. The newly marrieds were transferred to Palmerston North in the North Island and here Trevor and Ruth were born. The family were again transferred in 1944 - this time it was to the Lower Hutt Railway Workshops Staff-office and here Mark Lienert worked until his retirement in May 1965. The third child David, was born in Lower Hutt in 1947. Tragedy struck our family on the day of their father Mark's retirement - Sarah, his wife, was accidentally killed as a pedestrian in Wellington, aged just 55 years. Mark enjoyed 20 years of retirement and was a great musician and he loved to travel until his death in 1984, aged 75 years. (Family research by daughter Ruth)
