Marvis Eleanor Scott was born Feb. 14, 1921 at rural Letcher to Andrew and Elma (Runestad) Berg. She was baptized and confirmed in Trinity Lutheran Church. She grew up on a farm west of Letcher and graduated from Letcher High School in 1938.

Marvis married Glen C. Scott on Aug. 29, 1943, in Trinity Lutheran Church. Gwen, Larry and Dwight were born to this union.
Marvis and Glen continued to farm and raise cattle until 1958, at which time they purchased the Mitchell Sale Barn. In 1963, Marvis and Glen moved their family to a home on Lake Mitchell, giving Marvis a chance to fulfill her desire to be near water. In 1968 a move back to the farm brought Marvis and Glen again to the Storla community.
Marvis spent many hours outdoors, improving the landscape by gardening, planting trees and flowers of every kind. Marvis loved growing roses, feeding birds and entertaining friends and family with her wit and wisdom. After retiring, Marvis enjoyed spending time volunteering for community and church activities.
