Lucile Ellen Scott, born October 13, 1920, passed away peacefully April 14, 2013 at her home at Lake Forest Good Samaritan in Denton, Texas with her many friends at her side. She was born in Minco, Oklahoma to Amos and Mary McClure (Watson), a ranching and farming family. She met and married Charles E. (Scotty) Scott in 1941. As a young wife, she obtained her pilot's license and plane so that she could check on the location of their cattle so that the cowboys could round them up. They had a beloved daughter, Linda, that was the light of their lives, but sadly lost her life at the tender age of 5.
They then moved to various states, where they met and adopted a much-loved family, the Leonards. She and Scotty retired in Denton, where she met many friends, and enjoyed playing golf and bridge. She was a volunteer at Westgate Hospital, and enjoyed an antiques business. She loved the Dallas Cowboys and never missed a game, recounting it play by play the next day. She gave us all courage and hope and reminded us of the preciousness of life.
She is survived by two nieces, Paula Ann Tolbert and Kimili Barnard, two nephews, Amos McClure and Kent Barnard, and her adopted family Paul and Pat Leonard Sr., Hank Phan, Denise and Dennis Dickson, Mary Leonard, Paul and Denise Leonard Jr., and Lori and Jon Wheeler, and their many children. She was preceded in death by her husband Scotty, her daughter Linda, her two sisters Sylvia Barnard and Del Jensen, and two brothers Paul McClure and Gene McClure.
There will be a memorial service for Lucile Scott at 10:30 am Saturday, April 20th in the chapel at Lake Forest Good Samaritan. Donations may be made to Lake Forest Good Samaritan and Novus Hospice.
