I will look thru my reference books to make sure but I do not believe the white shirt at the bottom is military. The fact that is has no collar at all makes me think it is civilian.

I believe your Marine is Marie Ann S t a b l e r, S/N 758237 born 20 Mar 1923 in Waterford, VA , died 25 Jan 2010 Edmond, OK. She seems to have been in the Marines from about Jul 1943 to Aug 45 (maybe later) and stationed mostly at Cherry Point and then Quantico. She married Owen Wayne P a r s o n s on 30 Aug 1945.
There is a family tree for her on Ancestry.
With her brother:

You were very lucky to get such a nice grouping! I believe the dress white blouse was altered to wear in civilian life. The collar, bottom pockets, and epaulettes were removed and the sleeves shortened. The dress green blouse was also modified to wear after "The Duration" of World War II. This was not at all uncommon.
