Virginia Scott

Virginia Lee Scott, daughter of Clarence A. & Ruth Ellen (Lisle) Weddle, was born February 24, 1934, at home, west of Grant City, MO. Virginia grew up near Grant City and graduated from Grant City High School in 1952. Following graduation, she attended college for secretary/bookkeeping.

Virginia was united in marriage to Harold Scott on May 20, 1952, at Grant City, MO. After their marriage, they lived in Ashland, Nebraska for a couple of years before moving to Aurora, NE in the mid-1950’s where they established their home and raised their children. Julia Fern was born in 1955, John Andrew in 1956, and Terry Lee in 1957. Virginia was an active and loving wife and mother. She was her kid’s Girl Scout and Cub Scout troop leaders and worked as a secretary for Henderson Irrigation and a secretary/bookkeeper for the church in Aurora for many years. Virginia loved to bake, and she will always be remembered for her delicious food.

In the 1980’s, Virginia & Harold moved to Mount Ayr where she would remain for the rest of her life. She was the secretary at the First Christian Church until she retired. She helped tirelessly with Breakfast With the Master each Easter season, funeral luncheons, and other activities. Virginia was also an active member of American Legion Auxiliary. Virginia loved her children and loved the visits from her grandchildren.

Virginia passed away on November 27, 2021. She was preceded in death by her parents; husband Harold on July 10, 2008; brother William (Bill) Weddle.
