Marsha Ann Greer Scott, age 86, formerly of Scio, passed away Wednesday, January 25, 2023, at Community Hospice Truman House, New Philadelphia, Ohio.

Born June 17, 1936, in Scio, Ohio, she was the eldest daughter born to the late William Greer and Dorothy Ramsey Greer. Marsha graduated from Scio High School in 1954. After receiving her teaching degree from Kent State University, she returned to Scio to teach. In 1963 she married Dr. James Z. Scott and became not only his life partner but his business partner and medical practice manager.

Marsha was devoted to her community. She was a member of the Scio Presbyterian Church, where she served as an elder and a deacon. She was also their pianist for many years. She was a member of the Scio American Legion Post #482 Auxiliary and a former member of the Scio Jr. Women’s Club, Alturian Club, Scio Civic Club, Scio Stock Club, and the Twin City Hospital Auxiliary TWIGS, where she held various offices over the years. She was devoted to supporting her husband in his medical and military careers.

After 32 years of marriage, Dr. James Z. Scott preceded her in death on October 4, 1995. She was also preceded in death by her son James Z. Scott II, siblings William (Grace) Greer, Judith Parkinson, Thomas Greer, Dorothy (Marion) Albright, Sally Ankeny, and a brother-in-law Richard (Susan) Scott.

Surviving are her loving family, which includes a daughter Jamie (Jeff) Sacksteder of Tappan Lake; grandchildren, Zachary Kaylor and Jordan Kaylor, both of Columbus, Carol (Jeff) Gitlin of Kansas City, Missouri, Autumn (James) McCormick of Delaware, Trevor (Emily) Sacksteder of Logan and Jodelle (James) Young of Baltimore; six great-grandchildren; a brother-in-law John Parkinson of Adena; a sister-in-law Carolyn Greer of Cadiz; and numerous loving nieces and nephews.

Marsha was a faithful servant of the Lord, loved her family unconditionally, was generous beyond measure, and was an avid reader. She took great pride in all she undertook and always had a kind word or time to listen. Her biggest source of pride was her grandchildren. She loved being Grammy Marsha, and for years she was a regular on the travel sports circuit. She will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved her.

Services will be held Saturday, February 4, 2023, at 1 p.m. at Scio Presbyterian Church with Rev. David Demarest officiating. Burial will follow in Grandview Cemetery, Scio.
