Marguerite was born in Washington to Robert R. Linscott and Doris Finn Linscott. Marguerite attended Union High School where she graduated valedictorian, 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.

After teaching she worked as a hairdresser at Mahogany in Camden and at The Cutting Room 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.
