ANN LEE (SCOTT) GILLESPIE Mueller's Tri-Cities Funeral Home ANN LEE (SCOTT) GILLESPIE, 79 passed away July 2, 2017 at her home in Kennewick. She was born in Pasco, Washington to Lawrence and Bonnie (Brown) Scott on July 6, 1937 - she was just days shy of turning 80. July 4th was one of her favorite holidays, she loved everything red, white and blue - along with her stuffed Teddy bears. Ann grew up in Kenne-wick, graduating from Kennewick High School in 1955. Ann was the second of four generations, most recently 2017, to be a Lion. In high school, Ann met her high school sweetheart, Lynn - his "saving grace". They married on March 1,1958; 2018 would be their 60th Anniversary! Ann and Lynn began their family a few years later and welcomed two children, Scott and Sarah. Ann was a longtime member of PEO, an organization dear to her heart - she cherished all of the friendships she made along the way. Ann worked for Seattle First National Bank for nearly 20 years, followed by a short time with a local glass company. Ann then found her favorite work environment, ESD#123 in Pasco. Ann made wonderful, lifelong friends during her time before her health declined forcing her into retirement. During retirement, she and Lynn traveled across the county while Lynn played in competitive cribbage tournaments. She never played, but enjoyed the friends they traveled with and shopping during the tournaments. They traveled mostly along the West coast, but also ventured to Florida, Wisconsin, Missouri and Maine to name a few stops. Scott has two daughters Ashley (Nathan) and Ember, Sarah has two sons Alexander and Zachary. Ann was a hands on grandma, who loved her grandchildren so very much and was recently blessed with her 3rd great-grandchild, her namesake - Annie joining siblings Quinn and Davis. She attended as many plays, band concerts, award ceremonies, softball, baseball and ice hockey games as possible. Whether attending events local, in Idaho, or even Montana, she never once complained of being too hot or too cold. She loved to watch them and was their biggest fan. Ann was preceded in death by her mother and father - Lawrence & Bonnie Scott, her infant brother James, along with many other loved family members. She is survived by her husband, who adored her most Lynn, her sister Cate Scott, son Scott, daughter Sarah and husband Chris Higley, four grandchildren and three great-grandchildren. The family would like to give their sincerest appreciation to Dr. Clar de Jesus and Dr. Vassa for their care and guidance.
