Marquita 'Kita' Kay Axtman
November 25, 2020
On Sunday, Nov. 15, 2020, Marquita "Kita" Kay (Scott) Axtman, loving wife, daughter, mother, sister and friend passed away peacefully at home at the age of 64.
Kita was always adamantly opposed to having a funeral service. Out of utmost respect to her, the family is honoring this request.
Kita was born in Glasgow, Mont., on Nov. 15, 1956, to Wesley and Carol (Jensen) Scott. Kita was a graduate of Glasgow High School, the class of 1975. She spent many years working at the family store, Scott's Shop and Save. In 1985, she was hired by the United States Postal Service, where she served northeast Montana until retiring as the postmaster of the Glasgow Post Office in 2005.
Kita married the love of her life, Gus Axtman on Aug. 29, 1975. Together they made Glasgow their home and raised their two children, Sonya and Ryan.
Kita enjoyed the sport of rodeo all of her life and always knew who was where in the world standings. She loved to follow her grandsons' sporting events and always let them know she was their biggest fan. She loved spending time at Fort Peck Lake and thoroughly enjoyed her time with close friends. In recent years Kita was overjoyed when connecting with former classmates and acquaintances.
Kita was preceded in death by her mother, Carol Scott; and younger brother, Walter Scott.
Kita is survived by her loving husband, Gus Axtman; her daughter Sonya (Douglas Mahlum); her son Ryan Axtman (Jennifer Davis); her four rambunctious grandsons, Kane & Maddax Mahlum and Henry & Lincoln Axtman; her twin brother, Mark Scott; and father Wes Scott.
In lieu of flowers, Kita would "demand" of all of us to celebrate family and enjoy the memories that make us all smile, laugh, and maybe even cry a little.
