Heaven gained a beautiful soul, Emogene Scutchfield, 92, of Marysville, when she joined her heavenly family on Saturday, March 23, 2024 following a brief illness.

She was born March 16, 1932 in Pikeville, Kentucky, the youngest of nine children of the late Preston and Mary Thacker.

As a young girl, she was very involved in her church and sang with her sister, Nancy Jane and niece, Madlyn. They would sometimes perform to raise money for their school. Her first job was working in a drug store where Emogene met the love of her life, Ed Scutchfield. They married on June 9, 1950 and moved to Detroit for work. They eventually settled in Warren, where they raised their two children, Sondra and Eddie Jr. She was an exceptional wife and mother and was happy making a home for her family.

Emogene was very good at crocheting and sewing and could play the guitar and organ. After Ed’s passing, Emogene moved back to Michigan to be near her children and grandchildren. She took Art classes and excelled in water color painting. Her paintings are treasured by her family. She also loved to shop and play word games. In her last few years, she resided at Marwood Nursing and Rehab in Port Huron where she was given excellent care and love by the nurses and staff.

She is survived by her daughter, Sondra (Joseph) Maryon; son, Eddie (Diane) Scutchfield Jr.; six grandchildren, Julie Maryon, Greg (Amy) Maryon, Katie (Jeff) Frazer, Christopher (Marnie) Scutchfield, Kelly Ehrenberg and Kevin Scutchfield; 19 great-grandchildren; five great-great grandchildren; and many beloved nieces and nephews.
