Sept. 3 1939 ~ July 24, 2014|
Edith Jeantte Scott passed away peacefully in her sleep on Thursday, July 24th 2014.
Gone too soon, but our Heavenly Father and our previously deceased dad are welcoming her home for the eternities. Edith (or Dee to most) was the "energizer bunny" of the family. Always worried about others and taking care of their needs. If you left her home hungry or thirsty, you had no one to blame but yourself. She loved family time regardless of the activity. Camping, hunting, fishing, board or card games were just a few of the things she loved with family and friends. She blessed the lives of anyone she came in contact with and you were proud to call her your friend. From church, to family, to total strangers-she would give anyone the shirt off her back and do without herself. The Heavens are rejoicing her return. Born September 3rd, 1939 in Clearfield Tripp, South Dakota, daughter of Edward Devish and Vernice Hudson. She met the love of her life, Gaylord Scott, and they were married on April 4th, 1958 in Sturgis, South Dakota. She worked many years for the National Park Service and the Unites States Border Patrol, all while raising four children. Her energy never waived and even in "retirement" she was working at the Temple, serving others, and spending quality time with her family. Edith and Gaylord moved to Eagle Mountain, Utah in January of 2000 after spending most of their lives in West Texas. She loved all the national parks found in Utah and being able to share them with family. Our family was sealed for time and all eternity on August 19th, 1978 in the Salt Lake Temple of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter day Saints.
Survived by her four children Gaylord(Yvonne), Fred(Deann), Cindie(Ron), and Randy (Cindy) and many grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Proceeded in death by her husband(Gaylord), Sister(Connie), and her parents Ed and Vernice.
