Marilyn Lucille Scott ( 1937 – 2019 )
On February 8, 2019 Marilyn was called home to be with the Lord and her loving husband of 62 years. We take great comfort in knowing Dad “Den” was without a doubt waiting for her with his arms wide open ready for their overdue embraces.
Marilyn, was born in Minneapolis, Minnesota where she grew up cultivating her understanding of honesty, integrity, self-reliance, hard work, loyalty, and above all devotion to family. She never wavered on these values, and was blessed to have met a man that that would share these same values with her for eternity. For which, we her children, are the grateful recipients of their union.
Mom was a strong, intelligent woman resolute in her beliefs; and was not shy to share those beliefs with others. She had a wonderful creative gift that she used to express herself and her love of life. In order to gain a full understanding of this remarkable lady’s heart and spirit; one only needed to be invited into her home which was illuminated with her gift. Even with six children running about or the numerous grandchildren, her home was always warm, welcoming, and comforting.
Friendships were just as important to her as family and made many of them throughout her life. Every opportunity, whether it was during her school years, church family, workplace, or with new neighbors that she met during the moves from Minnesota to Wisconsin, then back again to Minnesota, finally settling in Colorado as our family followed Dad’s career. Retirement did not slow her down either as she continued to make close friends in the mountain home that her and dad built in Indian Mountain, Colorado. She cherished every one of these friendships and spoke fondly and lovingly of each of them up until the day of her passing.
The world was a better place with her in it, a blessing from God, she will be missed by all until the day that she rejoices with us again in God’s house.
Marilyn is preceded by her (husband) Robert Dennis Scott’s passing in 2013 and is survived by her six (6) children: Jacqueline (Tim), Laureen, (Michael), Karen (John), Chris, Michele (Sean) and Rebecca and thirteen (13) grandchildren and (14) fourteen great-grandchildren.
It was Marilyn’s wish that In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions donations be made in her name to a charity of your choice.
