Birth: Sep. 14, 1844, Denmark
Death: Feb. 20, 1913

Here are two obituaries that give a lot of information about Marie. I don't have the exact references, but they are very old. All descendants listed have passed away. Her maiden name is shown as "Schou", but the family obviously changed the name to "Scott" as that is listed on her marriage license to Andrew and is the name for her surviving brothers.

Obituary from unnamed newspaper:

Death of Mrs. Andrew Jenson.

The sad news of the death of Mrs. Andrew Jenson, was received this morning from Mt. Vernon. She passed away at about 1 o'clock. Mrs. Jenson has been ill for some time with asthma and heart trouble, but it was not until last Friday that the disease took on a serious nature. Her son, Alfred, of Denver, Colorado, and daughter, Mrs. Omar Brenne, of Hanley, Sask., were summoned to the bedside of their dying mother, but only Alfred came in time to see her alive. We haven't heard when the funeral is to take place but presume it will be Saturday or Sunday.

Many expressions of sympathy are heard for the afflicted ones.

Additional obituary:

Mrs. Andrew Jenson, whose death occurred at her home in Mt. Vernon, S.D., Thursday morning, Feb. 20, 1913, of asthma and heart trouble, was born at Borenholm, Denmark, Sept. 14, 1844. Her maiden name was Marie Sofie Schou. Her early life was spent in Denmark. In the year 1874, she came to America and settled in Pontiac, Illinois. On March 13, 1875, she was married to Mr. Andrew Jenson. In the year 1882 they came to Dakota and located in Belford township, Aurora county, where they lived untl March 1912, when they retired from the farm and located in Mt. Vernon.

The Journal editor, in writing the obituary of this good old lady, whom we have known for over thirty years, feel hardly able to do full justice to her good name and christian character. Mrs. Jenson was a faithful member of the Trinity congregation of the Lutheran church here, and had been since it was organized. Also a member of the Ladies' Aid. She was a devout christian and died in that faith. Although she liked to have lived a while longer with her family, she was ready when her Master calleth--death had no terror for her, as she had peace with God. The deceaced [sic] was ever a loyal helpmate to her husband and to her children she was a most self-sacrificing mother. She took deep interest in church work and did all the good she could. Those who knew her best will feel the loss most.

The deceased leaves to mourn her death, a husband, three children, one sister and three brothers. The children are: Rev. C.C.A. Jenson, Denver, Colorado; Mrs. Omar Brenne, Hanley, Sask., Canada; and Miss Hannah Jenson, of Mt. Vernon. Sister, Mrs. H. Jenson, Lovelock, Nevada; and brothers, George and Ole Scott, Mt. Vernon and Andrew Scott of Storia.
