Elaine G. Tilley Scott

1923-2010 HOOSICK FALLS, N.Y. Elaine Gertrude Tilley Scott, 86, passed away July 1, 2010 in Beaverton Oregon.

She is survived by her two sons, Alan and Brian; a brother, Merritt Tilley; sister, Norma Cunningham; five grandchildren and three great-grandchildren.

She was born in Albany, N.Y. on July 8, 1923 to parents Gladys G. Howe Tilley and Merritt E Tilley, and grew up in Hoosick Falls, N.Y.. She received her nursing degree from Samaritan Hospital School of Nursing in Troy, N.Y., where she would meet, and ultimately marry in 1947, the love of her life, Benson (Graham) Scott, who passed away in 2007 after 59 nine years of marriage.

During her life, she served in various capacities as a Registered Nurse, until deciding to stay at home and raise her family. She and Graham made California their home until 1972, when they moved to Arizona, where they were long time residents of The Lakes Community in Tempe, before moving to Sun City Grande in Surprise. It was not until 2005 that they took up residence in Oregon, where she and Graham could be closer to family.

Highly respected and greatly loved, she shall surely be missed.

FUNERAL NOTICE: Elaine is scheduled to be join Graham at the National Cemetery of the Pacific, in Honolulu later this year.
