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. She was very proud of her Norwegian ancestry and will always be remembered for her dumplings, lefsa and grease monkeys. Josephine and Charles returned to Calgary to live out their retirement in 1986. 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.
