Marjorie Mae Scott, 92, died peacefully on November 29, 2016 at Grand Victorian in Rockford, IL. "Marge" was born in Fenton, Illinois and grew up on a farm there. She graduated from Cornell College in Mt. Vernon, IA and went on to teach Home Economics for over 30 years in both Morrison and Sterling, IL. Marge and her husband retired to Naples, FL. She spent 23 wonderful years in Naples, where she enjoyed playing golf, belonging to the Sands Club, attending the Philharmonic and Water Works, and also socializing with her many caring friends. Marge was a devoted Chicago Bears and Iowa Hawkeye fan. Her happiest days were those spent raising her sons, being with her grandchildren, and living in Florida. Our sweet and loving Marge will be missed by many, including her two sons and daughters-in-law, Rick Scott (Sandy) of Roscoe, IL; Brad Scott (Rose) of Rock Falls, IL; four grandchildren and eight great-grandchildren. She was preceded in death by her parents, Everett and Janette Barkman, her husband, Richard (Dick) Scott, and her brother, William (Bill) Barkman. A private celebration of Marge's life will be held with family. In lieu of memorial donations, a random act of kindness in Marge's memory would be appreciated.

    Rest in peace my dear friend. You will always be my favorite teacher.....

  2. Mike Paris

    I am so sad to hear of the passing of Marge. I worked with her at SHS. I was a beginning teacher and she set an example for the young staff as to what a teacher should be. By far, she was the most respected person in our school. I thank her for all the help she gave me while starting out. I thank the family for sharing her with us.

  3. Teresa & Charlie Ortiz

    I had her all four years in school and she helped me make a coat I could wear to school. I admired her very much and will always remember her. We are sending our prayers to her family.

  4. Susan Bland

    I was one of many home ec students Mrs. Scott had in her classes & I loved her. One day, I was being a typical teary teenager - she found me (in the girls restroom, no less) and gave me a hug. A small gesture but I have never forgotten it! Not only was she a great teacher but a kind lady.

  5. Nellie Fleming

    Thankful for Aunt Marge's life! Sending love to and praying for you all.

  6. Sylvia Scott Quandt

    Marge was my aunt, a friend and confidant. She was so encouraging and loving to everyone. I have happy memories to keep forever and glad she is safe in the loving arms of our Savior. We pray for Rick and Sandy, Brad and Rosalina and all her family who love and miss her.

  7. Mary Scott Snyder

    Aunt Marge was beautiful! She was so loving and so much fun to be with! She gave an exceptional meaning to the name homemaker, and for years young women learned from her how to cook, sew- and most of all be creative. She was encouraging and interested in whatever you were doing. The world has lost some of its sparkle with her passing. May she bask now in the presence of the Lord. My heartfelt condolences to Rick and Sandy, Brad and Rosa.

    I got to know Marge in her later years. She was a beautiful soul and also a great "mother" to me and my dog who she adored ( and who adored her ) She was always welcoming to anyone dropping by her beautiful home...a true lady ! We miss her a lot but we know in our hearts that she has gone to a better place Roland & Nelson
