On the morning of March 17, 2019, Margaret Ann “Meg” Scott of Salem, VA went to be with Jesus. After a courageous 22-year battle with brain cancer, she passed away peacefully in her home, surrounded by her family and loved ones. She was 49 years old.
Meg was born to Charles and Nancy (Harteis) Itle on November 29, 1969 in Bellefonte, PA. She graduated in 1988 from Trinity High School (Shiremanstown, PA) and in 1992 from Penn State University, with a degree in Agricultural Science. Her professional career lead her to work as a Flock Supervisor for Frank Purdue, Inc., a Nutrient Management Specialist for the Maryland Dept. of Agriculture, and a Natural Resources Specialist for the National Resource and Conservation Service.
In the year 2000 she married and began a family that bore her four precious children: Ben, Jena, Katie, and Grace.
Meg was an adventurous, generous, and, above all, deeply spiritual person. Growing up, she was happiest riding and caring for her horses. Her love and respect for animals meant that she had many “four-legged” friends, including the current family dogs, Josie and Jarvis. In college she showed farm animals as a member of Penn State Dairy Science and the Block & Bridle Club. She also spent one summer working as the head wrangler on a Colorado dude ranch. In 1993 her adventurous spirit took her to Norway, where she participated in the International Four-H Youth Exchange Program (IFYE), spending 6 months as a cultural ambassador.
Meg’s external beauty was surpassed only by the size of her generous heart. She had a special knack for touching people’s lives, often showing consideration for friends and strangers in the most subtle and unexpected ways. It was not uncommon for Meg to offer a ride to a stranger because she saw it was “just too cold or too far for someone to be out walking”. She never missed a chance to volunteer or help a member in her church community, Calvary Chapel Roanoke. Meg was intentionally humble in her acts of kindness because, as she would say, all the glory belongs to God.
Meg is preceded in death by her grandparents, Francis J. and Mildred C. (Sutton) Itle, Lawrence A. and Ruth M. (Bodenschatz) Harteis, her infant brother, James “Jimmy” Itle, and infant daughter, Grace Elizabeth Scott.
Meg is survived by her three children, Benjamin C., Jenalyn C., and Katelin J. Scott; her children’s father, Michael C. Scott; parents, Charles A. Itle and Nancy C. (Harteis) Itle; siblings, Christine A. Repetz and husband John, Carol L. Brownawell and husband Christopher, Thomas A. Itle, Jeffrey C. Itle and wife Maria; stepmother, Elizabeth H. Edmunds; her children's beloved paternal grandparents, Paul and Linda Lee Gaines, and John Scott (Judy); her children's uncles, John C. Scott (Michelle), and Christopher Gaines (Mary Kate) and 11 cherished nieces and nephews.
On Friday, March 22nd "Visitation with the Family" will be held from 6-8pm at John M. Oakey & Son Funeral Home, 305 Roanoke Blvd., Salem, VA 24153.
On Saturday, March 23rd “Meg’s Celebration of Life” service will be held in Calvary Chapel Roanoke, 3839 Shenandoah Ave., Roanoke, VA 24017. A reception will follow.
In lieu of flowers, the family suggests memorial donations be made to the following:
The Ben, Jena and Katie Adventure Fund ( or to Good Samaritan Hospice (

To Meg's family and friends. My deepest sympathy. I worked with Meg a short while when she worked in NJ for NRCS. She made a big impression as her spirituality and kindness shown like a beacon of light. When she moved south I followed her Journal and read with great love her positive notes of love and gratefulness to the Lord as she battled with health issues. Some people are put on this earth for a short time only but are still able to affect others in positive ways with their love. Well done good and faithful servant of the Lord. Rest in Peace.

We live behind you on Diamond Road. Our condolences go out to your family. Meg was very helpful to my wife, Judy, when her car ended up in a ditch next to the water drainage area which separates your house from our house 2 years ago. The Spruhan Family,
John, Judy, and Lydia.

My best memories from my childhood were those spent with Meg. She and Sparky started my love for horses. She also gave me my first kitten for my 10th birthday . Though I did not know her in our adult lives, she will always be one of the most memorable people of my entire life. My heart is with her family always.
