Patricia Ann Scott, 86, slipped peacefully away on August 24, 2020, in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, surrounded by family.

Born May 16, 1934, in Lubbock, Texas, Pat was the 4th of 6 children of James & Evelyn Pruitt. A graduate of Lubbock High School, Pat married James R Scott in September 1952. She was the proud mother of 4, devoting her time and attention to their upbringing.

A committed Christian, Pat taught 6th & 7th grade Bible classes for 45 years. She and Jimmie traveled to Christian Lectureships around the United States conducting Children’s Worship seminars. Pat was also a valued speaker at women’s seminars.

While living in Tulsa, Oklahoma, Pat began and led the Mother’s Day Out program at Park Plaza Church of Christ. In addition, she worked with Jim in the 3 congregations where he served as an elder. She loved having a beautiful yard and spent many hours in her flower beds. She also loved interior decorating, enjoying painting and hanging wallpaper. Whatever idea she came up with, Jimmie built it.

More than anything, she loved her family. Pat was preceded in death by her beloved Jimmie, as well as all her siblings.

    I have enjoyed doing Pat’s hair every week for several years. Her great sense of humor and quick witted personality was the best! I had gone to her house to do her hair and she bent over the sink for me to wash her hair and she asked me “am I in the sink good enough?” I said, “your perfect”. She said to her daughter, Cheril, “Did you hear that?” “She said I was perfect.” That is just one of many humorous things she would say. This makes my job so much fun every week. Love her and will miss her so much

    Pat was always pleasant, always looking for ways to help, always concerned for others. It was our blessing to be in the same Sunday School class with Pat. We have missed her so much these past months when she was unable to attend. She was a special lady.
