Marguerite Ott

March 29, 1921 — June 26, 2019

Ellen Marguerite Ott, 98, of Grant, passed away June 26, 2019, at the Imperial Manor.

Marguerite was born March 29, 1921, southwest of Madrid to Shirley and Elizabeth (Lorenger) Smith. She attended Perkins County High School in Grant.

On February 24, 1941, she married Herbert "Luke" Ott in Grant. The couple made their home in Dickens, Nebraska where they raised their family. Marguerite and Luke moved to Grant in 1970.

Marguerite loved to dance and was excellent in the kitchen. She was a person of great love, and she was often sharing that love in the form of food and baked goods, whether it was cookies, bread, or peanut brittle.

Marguerite enjoyed giving people a hard time and savored good banter. Her family and close friends will miss the twinkle in her eye, and love in her heart.

Marguerite was preceded in death by her parents; husband, Herbert "Luke" Ott; son, Dennis Earl Ott; son-in-law, Roland "Ron" Ogg; siblings, Lena Smith, Pearl Bierma, and Bud Smith.

Survivors include her children, Gary (Joan) Ott of Wallace, Kristy of Madrid; daughter-in-law, Starla Ott of Palisade; sister Marion (Ken) Harter of Sumner, Washington. Her grandchildren include Julie Kelley, Deanna Klosen, Crystal Bryant, Dalyce Deveny, Reid Ott, Travis Ogg, and Bert Gibbs; thirteen great-grandchildren; one great-great-grandchild; along with many other relatives and friends.
