Longtime Alaskan and Sterling resident Margaret E. "Margie" Scott died Tuesday, Aug. 26, 2008, of cancer at home surrounded by her husband and children. She was 74.
A celebration of life will be held at 2 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 7, at Alaska Cozy Cabins in Sterling.
Mrs. Scott was born in Bay City, Mich., and moved to Flint, Mich. where she lived until she met and married Edsel Scott. The couple moved to Alaska in 1956 and lived in the Chugiak/Eagle River area where they raised four children.
Mrs. Scott worked along side her husband at United Lumber Co. in Eagle River until he retired from the business. In 1988 they moved to Sterling where they owned and operated Alaska Cozy Cabins. She cleaned cabins, enjoyed visiting with her friends and clients around the campfire and helped run the business until her health would no longer allow her to do so.
"She loved working in her flower gardens and playing with her dog Rosie. She was an awesome cook and baker. Someone would always ask her to bake something for them, which she always did. She loved seeing the enjoyment her labor of love brought to those who received it. She also loved to read and work on crossword puzzles. Spending time with her family was always her highlight. She was an angel to us and is now an angel looking over us from Heaven. She will be greatly missed by all her knew her, she was a truly sweet, loving and wonderful person. She also is survived by many dear friends, whom she considered her family."
Mrs. Scott is survived by her husband of 57 years; children, Lonnie Scott and his wife, Trudy, of Nikiski, Linda Willis and her husband, Rodney, of Eagle River, Cheryl Barber and her husband, Don, of Sterling and Edsel Scott Jr. and his fiancˇe, Diana, of Wasilla; grandchildren, Amy, Kimberly, Kristy, Scott, Daniel, Jared, Trevor, Edsel III and Chari; six great-grandchildren; brothers, Fredrick Kehr, Donald Kehr and Gerald Kehr; and sister, Ilene Hamel.
