Obituary for Doris Scott

Doris  Scott
Doris Jane Jones Scott came into this world as the adored daughter of Martin and Jane Jones, and the baby sister to Martin Jr. and Preston (Bud). She left this world as the life-long love of Walter Gaylord Scott, the sweet mother of Lori Jane Scott Robertson and Gaye Lynn Scott, the gracious mother-in-law of Glenn Earl Robertson, and the doting grandmother of Joel Scott Robertson. Walter, her husband of 67 years, and Lori and Gaye Lynn were with her in her home when she passed away. She lived a life of sweetness and grace, love and kindness, and she will be missed by all who knew her.

Doris was born in Palestine, Texas on August 20, 1926 and passed on to life in God’s comforting embrace on December 7, 2017. She was cheerful and loving to the end, thanks to the constant love and devotion of Walter. She was the love of his life and the focus of his energy, passion, and compassion from the time they met at Baylor University, where they each earned baccalaureate degrees in 1949, his in Bible and hers in Spanish. She worked as a church secretary while he attended graduate school, she typed his 475-page dissertation (more than once) for his doctorate from The Johns Hopkins University, and she raised two tow-headed girls – who are still referred to by many as “The Girls” today.

Doris loved her God and her church throughout her long life. She hosted countless wedding showers, she was active in the WMU, she worked in the church office during the Sunday School hour for many years, and she was the unofficial church historian for First Baptist Church. Doris also loved genealogy and was a member of the Daughters of the American Revolution, the Daughters of the Republic of Texas, and the United Daughters of the Confederacy.

When Walter retired, they enjoyed traveling with “The Girls” to Europe, attending OSU baseball games, continuing their genealogy work, bickering, loving, laughing, and living out their lifetime commitment of love. God’s grace and enveloping love were present throughout their lives together as they raised their family, served their church, and loved their God, and God’s grace and love were present at the end. In lieu of flowers, the family suggests donations to the First Baptist Church Foundation.

Funeral services will be held at First Baptist Church, 701 S. Duncan, Stillwater, Oklahoma, on Monday, December 11 at two o’clock in the afternoon. Interment will follow at Fairlawn Cemetery. The Reverends Tim Walker, Rodney McGlothlin, and Glenn Robertson will preside.
Strode Funeral Home is in charge of the arrangements.
