FAIR BLUFF — Dr. Jacqueline Rogers Scott passed away peacefully at Scotia Village Presbyterian Home on Jan. 12, 2015.

Dr. Scott was born on July 18, 1927 to Hubert N. Rogers, Sr. and Vernon Townsend Rogers of Fair Bluff. She was predeceased by her parents, her brother H.N. Rogers, Jr. and her loving and dedicated husband of 58 years Jimmie A. Scott, Sr.

"Miss Jackie" was a career teacher of English and U.S. History and later a guidance counselor in the Columbus County School System. She also taught at UNC Pembroke as an adjunct professor.

She brought her love of learning to her classrooms and shared it with family and friends, advising that "no one can take away your education." She held degrees from Mars Hill Jr. College, UNC-Chapel Hill (BA), East Carolina University (MA) and NCSU (EdD).

Her greatest love was for her family and many friends. Her strong parenting skills led her to be an exceptional mother. She is survived by Kay S. Bullard (John) of Southern Pines, Jimmie A. Scott, Jr. (Robin) of Chadbourn, Mark R. Scott (Ann) of Murrells Inlet, South Carolina, Neil T. Scott and Gregory D. Scott (Elizabeth) of Fair Bluff, grandchildren Scott W. Bullard (Shannon) and John Patrick Bullard (Katrina), Jennifer S. Andersen (Kenny), William Paul Scott (Olivia), SSgt. USAF Justin Kyle Scott (Jenna), Christina S. Jenkins (Ryan), Mary Beth S. Hayes (Zack), and Caroline O. Scott, and great-grandchildren Judson, Desmond, Campbell and Walker Bullard, Braden, Reid and Evan Andersen, Natasha and Marley Scott, Parker and Prestyn Hayes, and a new addition expected in August.

Other close family members are cousin Barbara N. Wilson of Raleigh, nieces Marian Scott, Caroline S. Ellington, Beth R. Thorndyke, and nephew Hugh Rogers, III, and Dennis Farmer, our "other brother."

Miss Jackie also loved her family of friends and loving caregivers at Scotia Village. She was so happy during her residence there, and she gave thanks daily for them.

Visitations will be at Scotia Village from 5-7 p.m. on Friday and at Fair Bluff United Methodist Church on Saturday from 1-2:45 p.m. preceding the 3 p.m. service and after the graveside service at Powell Cemetery.
