Marilyn Pecato ScotsRoss
Also known in the Philippines (particularly Davao, Mindi
nao) as Marilyn P. Gutierriez, beloved wife of John Jerry
ScotsRoss, tender mother of Jeanette Marion (age 5), Judy
Jeri (age 12), and Maeva Julia ScotsRoss (age 13), close friend
of hundreds of others, and faithful daughter and close follower
of our Lord Jesus Christ, after 10 months of steady decline
and increased suffering from non-Hodgkin's diffuse, enlarged
B-Cell Lymphoma, departed her cancer-ruined husk of a body
at 8:08 PM, December 22, 2011. She was born in Hagonoy,
Bulacan, on November 12, 1967, the daughter of Pergentia
Pelaez Pecato and Eduardo Gutierrez.
After a year of study and then passing her Vemont State
Licensed Nursing Assistant examination, Marilyn worked
with sentient enthusiasm as an LNA at the St. Albans Health
and Rehabilitation Center in Vermont. However, before the
home that they were having built for them in Greenwood,
Indiana was complete, and before completing her studies to
become a Registered Nurse, she was diagnosed with cancer.
By her effort and gifted talent as a singer/guitarist and
fervent Christian, the number of children attending Sunday
School at Binghamville/Fletcher United Methodist Church in
Vermont increased from zero to 12 and more. Whether as a
leader of the children's choir or an ever ready supporter of
the effort of others, Marilyn was always an open window of
Christian love through which warm friendship flowed both
ways without the least obstruction. Her physical presense
will be sorely and tearfully missed by the hundreds who
thought of her as a good and faithful friend. She will forever
be tenderly remembered by each and every one who ever
knew her. Farewell our beloved Marilyn, you have escaped
your suffering in favor of Heaven, where we will in time be
rejoined with you.
A service to commemorate her life will be held on Decem
ber 30, 2011 at 1:00 p.m. at her new church in Indiana, the
Southport United Methodist Church. Senior Paster Mark A.
Fisher will conduct the service. Volunteer members from
among the church body will provide food and drinks.
