Mrs. Scott worked in retail at various stores for several years and retired from Walmart after 19 years of service. She was a Christian and a member of the Brushy Fork CEOS.
Mrs. Scott loved people, seeing new places, shopping, fishing, reading, attending anything her granddaughter Nina was involved in and recently spent time making “ear savers” for masks and donating them to first responders and medical personnel in WV & VA. Most of all she loved spending time with her family who cherished and loved her dearly.
Because of her love of reading, we ask in lieu of flowers please donate to your local Library or Literacy Program.
