Marjorie was born on January 1, 1947 into a farming and ranching family
southeast of Purple Springs. She developed her love and passion for horses,
livestock, farming and country lifestyle during her childhood and teenage
years on the farm. She was the youngest in the family of seven brothers and
two sisters. At the age of seventeen, she moved to Calgary to attend
business college. Following college, she took a job with Transalta Oil and
Gas that she enjoyed and was successful at.
At eighteen, Marjorie met her husband to be, Allan Scott. They quickly
became best friends and before long they were married in February 1967.
Later that year they welcomed their first son Keith to the family. After
having started their family, they relocated to sunny Southern Alberta,
returning to the family farm in 1968. They welcomed their second son William
in 1972 and then their third son Kenneth in 1974.
Marjorie loved all the years that she, Allan and the boys had together.
Although the years and times presented multiple challenges, she loved the
Lord and her family.
Her passion for livestock, especially horses never waned. While on the farm
she would always ensure that there was livestock of one sort or another,
Marjorie was always well liked, respected and appreciated by whoever she
met. Whether it was at work, church functions, her personal life or in her
later years during speaking engagements, this held true. Marjorie will be
lovingly remembered by her family and friends.
