Marcia Scott Clark died peacefully at home with her loving family on December 26th, 2018.
She was born March 23, 1951 in Miami Florida to Manget Lamar Scott and Ruth Dout Scott. She lived in Saluda, NC for the past 30 years. She earned her BFA in Music from Florida Atlantic University. She was a professional concert oboist, talented pianist, and played many other instruments including dulcimer, hammer dulcimer, recorder, and ocarina. After a career teaching music in Florida, she enjoyed serving her community as a librarian at the Henderson County Library, and painted the beautiful mural in the Children's Department. Her creative talents also extended to fine macrame, silk and watercolor painting, drawing, and quilt making. Her passion for the arts also included supporting other artists.
She was a very loving wife and mother, and a woman of tremendous kindness, and compassion, who revered life and had a positive, nurturing spirit. This spirit was expressed in an affinity for plants, gardening and making things grow, and her home was filled with beautiful, thriving green plant life. Her compassion also showed in how she treated all living things from insects to animals. She always grew plants for the pollinators and fed the hummingbirds. She recently rescued an abandoned domestic rabbit, and it thrived under her care and became part of the family.
Her memory will be cherished by her husband of 46 years, Mark Clark, daughter Anita Clark Dasjkin, and Mother Ruth Scott.
A memorial service will be announced at a later time.
