  Marie was born to Will and Nettie Brown on Aug. 11, 1918, in ldabel, Okla. As an infant her family moved to Oregon, for sawmill work. They lived in many small communities of Klamath Falls. Her father worked at the sawmill and her mother ran the cookhouse which fed the workers.

  It was in Brookings, Ore., that she met Bill Scovell, a newspaperman, whom she married on Aug 16, 1936. They had two children, Pamela (Scovell) Weis and Dennis Scovell. Bill didn’t last long as a newspaper man, he developed lead poisoning and had to change careers. Marie’s parents had moved to Plumas County to work for Frizzie’s Mill in Dixie Canyon. In 1942 Marie and Bill came down from Oregon for a visit and fell in love with Quincy. Bill began working for one of the local sawmills. They soon bought a piece of land on Chandler Rd., where Bill built a modest home. It was one of the first houses built on Chandler Rd., other than the ranches. Marie ran the household while Bill worked at the sawmill. Marie was a wonderful cook, like her mother, and an avid reader. Marie and Bill belonged to many organizations, including Eastern Star, Grange, White Shrine, Senior Gleaners and they attended the Methodist Church for many decades.
