Dorothy Scott Obituary, Death Cause – Dorothy Jane Scott was a sole caretaker for her only child and was content with the unremarkable existence she led. When someone started following her around, her life went from being predictable to being unpredictable. It started out with strange and compulsive phone calls, and it progressively got worse from there. After that, he continued to harass her parents by calling them at obscene hours of the night.
She was the cherished wife of Malcolm, who passed away. Beloved mother and mother-in-law to Andrew, Val, and Myles and Marie; cherished grandmother of Michelle and Rodney and Thomas; Harry and Maddie; and great-grandmother to Skyla and Van. Please address all correspondence to the Scott family to Post Office Box 472 in Ashburton, New Zealand 7740. In honor of Jean’s life, there will be a memorial service held in the Chapel. She got married to Robert G. Scott in 1956, the same year that she received her Associate of Applied Science degree from Ithaca College.
