SCOTT – Josephine Anne

March 24 , 1932 – April 11, 2014

Josephine “Jo” Scott passed away peacefully with family at her side on April 11, 2014 following a long battle with Alzheimer’s disease.

She was predeceased by the love of her life, her husband of fifty-eight years, Charles Albert Scott. Their legacy lives on through their four children, Dr. Kenneth (Lynn) Scott, Dr. Selma Scott (Dr. Terry Stewart), Kathy (Cary) McGraw, Glenn (Cheryl) Scott; thirteen grandchildren; and five precious great-grandchildren, Shane, Chandra (Yan Giroux), Lisa, Sonja, Nadia (Jason Leavitt and children Alina, Max and Claire), Alina, James, Kealy (Justin Lambert and children Mitchell and Emmett), Nicole (Matthew Vander Griend), Julia, Matthew, Wesley and Cory.

Josephine was born in Domremy Saskatchewan. She trained as a psychiatric nurse in North Battleford.

Josephine was predeceased by her brother Otto and is survived by three siblings, Tharold, Clarence and Sonja.

Her children wish to thank their families and friends for their support to Josephine during her battle with Alzheimer’s. She was a loving wife, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother. Today she would wish for you to smile for her.

    Scott Family,
    Cliff and I were lucky enough to spend many afternoons on Ken and Lynn’s front porch drinking wine with your Mom and Dad. Over the years we have enjoyed listening to their many wonderful tales and stories about their lives, travels, children, grandchildren and great grandchildren. We always knew we would have a fun afternoon with plenty of laughter when we were with them.
    Please accept our sincerest condolences. We will always have fond memories of your Mother.
