Marjorie was born on November 22, 1928 in Ithaca, Nebraska to the late Rosa and Arthur Rexilius. She lived in Nebraska until 1946, attending school in District 16’s one-room schoolhouse through the eighth grade, and then completing grades 9-11 in Beatrice, Nebraska. Marjorie moved with her family to Wheaton, Illinois in 1946, where she graduated from Wheaton Academy in 1947. Called to care for others, Marjorie took nurses training at West Suburban Hospital in Oak Park from 1947-1950. She graduated from Wheaton College in 1952 with a Bachelor’s of Science in Nursing. She devoted 33 of the next 36 years to nursing, first at the Geneva Community Hospital from 1968-1988. While in Wheaton in 1956, she met her life’s partner and soulmate of 56 years, Harold J. Scott. The two were wed on June 10, 1957, never to part. Marjorie and Harold celebrated the birth of their first child, James Michael in January, 1964 and their second, Anne Marie, in August, 1965. Marjorie’s love for her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ sustained her throughout her life. She was a 60 year member of the Lombard Bible Church and devoted herself to service to her church as the pianist for 55 years and in many other areas of ministry. Her life of love and faith was complete and full and she rests in the arms of her Lord, a ransomed soul.
