Marion Behn Obituary
Marion Gertrude Scott was born in Chicago, IL on August 17, 1918 to Everett David Scott and Gertrude Anna (Von Hagel) Scott, and passed away on July 9, 2018, just one month shy of her 100th birthday. Marion grew up on the north side of Chicago where she graduated from Von Stuben High School in 1936. She married Clarence Henry Behn on February 15, 1941.
Marion is survived by her three children: Norman Scott Behn (Cherie Gass), Carol Louise Maes (Richard Maes), and Patti Ann Westfall (Wesley Westfall). She was especially proud of her six grandchildren and their spouses, and her seven great-grandchildren.
Marion and Clarence moved to Arizona in 1971, when Clarence was relocated as a Senior Vice-President of Greyhound Corporation. After he retired in 1980, they spent ten wonderful years traveling to many countries and going on several cruises. Unfortunately, both Marion's mother Gertrude and her husband Clarence died in 1990.
Marion will be missed by her family and the many friends she has kept in contact with through the years.
In lieu of flowers, she has asked that any remembrances be donated in her name to Phoenix Children's Hospital.
Services will be Friday, July 13 at 10:30am at Blessed Sacrament – 11300 N. 64th Street, Scottsdale AZ 85254
