Born: Sunday, September 14, 1924
Passed: Tuesday, November 29, 2016
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.
