Marcia was united in marriage to Robert “Bob” Beman Scott, her high school sweetheart, on January 20, 1952 in Villisca, IA. She graduated from Villisca High School in 1950. Marcia worked outside the home and eventually Bob’s career moved the family to MN. In 1972, the family moved to Kankakee, IL, where Bob and Marcia opened a Plywood Minnesota franchise and worked side by side. They both retired in 1993 and purchased a winter home in Mesa, AZ. After 45 years in IL, they returned to MN, where they enjoyed living on a small lake.
