Washington — Marguerite M. Linscott, 72, passed away unexpectedly at Sussman House Jan. 31, 2019.

Marguerite was born in Washington to Robert R. Linscott and Doris Finn Linscott. She attended Union High School, where she graduated as valedictorian in the class of 1964. Marguerite continued on to become a hairdresser and she taught at Central Beauty School in Augusta. Her students gave her the nickname “teach.” Her students described her as tough but thorough. Marguerite took great pride in what she did, which made her one of the best in the business. She was nominated for a Best of the Best award in the 2004 reader’s poll for her work. After teaching she worked as a hairdresser at Mahogany and at The Cutting Room, both in Camden, until her retirement.

In her spare time, Marguerite enjoyed working outside in her flower and vegetable gardens, cooking and working around the house. She was an avid animal lover. She enjoyed having the company of wildlife and had a special bond with her cats and her dog, Cindy.

Marguerite was predeceased by her father, Robert, in 1988, mother Doris in 2002, and oldest brother Robert Linscott in 2019. She is survived by her two brothers, Mahlon Linscott and wife Barbara of Washington, Berkley Linscott and wife Nancy of Washington; sister-in-law Janice Linscott of Union; nephews Richard Linscott and his wife Kimberly of Washington, Milton Linscott and his wife, Pamela, of Florida, David Linscott and his wife, Christina, of Topsham; great-nephews Benjamin Linscott of Florida and Harrison Linscott and wife Catherine of Union.

At Marguerite’s request, there will be no services.

In lieu of flowers, consider a donation to the Pope Memorial Humane Society of Knox County, P. O. Box 1294, Rockland, ME 04841.
