Adelaide "Scottie" Atkinson, 80, of Lenox Twp., died Saturday morning at home. She was preceded in death by her husband, John "Jack" Atkinson, on April 21, 2006.

Born Aug. 20, 1940, in Scranton, she was the daughter of the late James Dickson Welles and Adelaide Blydenburg Welles and was a graduate of Lackawanna Trail High School. Scottie enjoyed her job at Taylor's Hobby World in Clarks Summit, where she worked as a clerk and taught classes. She was a member of the Factoryville United Methodist Church and was involved with several musical groups that included: Classic Voices, Interlude, Harmony Show Choir and her church choir. She was active in many community participation and fundraising groups over the years including Girl Scouts and the church's mobile food pantry.

She loved to bake and took great joy in making platters of Christmas cookies for family and friends.

She is survived by her two grandsons, John William Montgomery IV, Covington Twp.; and Neil Anthony Montgomery and wife, Sarah, Tunkhannock; and two great-granddaughters, Delilah and Bailey Montgomery.

She was also preceded in death by a daughter, Heather Atkinson; a brother, James D. Welles Jr.; and a sister, Mary Flanagan.

The funeral will be Monday at 2 p.m. from the Factoryville United Methodist Church, 162 College Ave., Factoryville, with the Rev. Jean Blackie, pastor, officiating. Due to limited seating capacity at the church set by public health rules, the funeral service is reserved for family and close friends.

Anyone wishing to pay their respects may attend a visitation Monday from 1 to 2 p.m. at the church, where masks and social distancing rules will apply. Due to capacity limitations, those attending the visitation may be required to wait before entering the church to pay their respects.
