Peggy Marie Scott

Peggy Marie Scott passed away Friday, April 3.

She was born Nov. 17, 1936 in Montevallo. She married her first blind date, James David Scott and they remained happily married for over 60 years.

Peggy loved to cook regular Sunday dinners and elaborate holiday meals for her very large family. Everyone enjoyed gathering around for those special times and traditions. She relished in family trips to the beach and to the mountains. She loved to garden, cook, can fresh vegetable, make home-made jelly and incredible pies. Some have said she was the best cook in Shelby County – and her family agrees.

Peggy was an Avon representative for 36 years and consistently made Honor Society and President’s Club. She developed special relationships with many of her customers and they became cherished friends.

Peggy was a faithful Christian, loved God and was a lifetime member of Ebenezer United Methodist Church. Her life was a living example of the Bible verse, Ephesians 4:32 “And be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving one another, just as God also forgave you in Christ.” She loved her family and she will be sorely missed.

Peggy is survived by her son Wendell Scott (Dinah); daughters, Karen Tennyson, Judy McGill (Steve) and Rachel Beth Whitfield; 11 grandchildren; and nine great grandchildren.

She was preceded in death by her loving husband, James Scott; daughter, Lori Lancaster; and parents, William (Willy) and Naomi Arledge.

Peggy was laid to rest at Moore’s Cemetery on Tuesday, April 7.
