Beverly Jane Scott
BYRON, Ga. — Beverly Jane Scott, 64, passed away on Sunday, December 16, 2007, at her home and surrounded by her family after a long battle with Multiple Sclerosis and cancer.
Beverly was born July 24, 1943, in Cedar City, Utah, to her parents Steven and Thelma James. On July 10, 1964, she married William Thomas Scott of Washington, North Carolina, and they were dear sweethearts for 43 years.
She spent her life in the service of her family and friends and loved being a homemaker. She was very skilled in the homemaking arts and felt that the most important work she would ever do would be within the walls of her home. Beverly Scott was a strong woman who was well-read, perceptive and quick witted. She became an inspiration to all who knew her.
She was an active member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints in Warner Robins. As a member, she served in several callings, but her greatest enjoyment was serving as a seminary teacher for six years, teaching the youth about the gospel of Jesus Christ. In her retirement, she served a full-time mission with her husband in Navuoo, Illinois. As a missionary, she delivered history lectures, participated in historical dramas and testified to the purpose of life.
Survivors include her husband, Tom Scott, son and daughter-in-law Tommy and Kim Scott, of Sandy, Utah; son, Mike Scott, of Centerville; daughter and son-in-law Beth and Justin Vanderwalker of Fort Mill, South Carolina. Other survivors include Becky Scott and grandchildren: Jared Scott, Ben Scott, Amanda Scott, Erin Scott, Austin Scott, Ashleigh Vanderwalker, Spencer Vanderwalker, Samantha Vanderwalker, and Jessica Vanderwalker.
