Mary Scott Obituary

Mary Ann Scott, our beloved Mother, Granny and GG went to be with the Lord very peacefully on February 2nd at 2:30am.  She was surrounded with family as we celebrated her entrance to heaven.  She was 87 years old.

Mary was born in Oklahoma on February 28, 1936.  When she was 14, her family came to Farmersville. She attended Exeter Union High School until her sophomore year.  She met Wayne Scott when she was 16 and they were married under a brush arbor shortly after.  They moved to Exeter and built a wonderful life together.  They had three daughters, Connie Featherston (Randy), Machele Ward (Bill) and Cheryl Smoot (Mark).  She had six grandchildren, Scott Reyna, Rosemarie Mitchell (David), Sara Gray, Lance Featherston (Carolina), Rosalie Sears (John) and Jenna Halsey (Cory).  She also had 13 great grandchildren, Rory Crist, Briana Martin (Jonathan), Blake Baffo, Cameron Mitchell, Jenna Mitchell, Lucas Featherston, Emma Featherston, Ely Reed, Scarlett Sears, Colin Sears, Ava Sears, Camilla Halsey and Nova Halsey.

Mary built quite a legacy with her family, community and church.  Once her children were grown, she took a cake decorating course at COS and began making wedding cakes. She later started a catering business and started cooking dinners at the Veterans Memorial Building in Exeter, breakfast for the Exeter Lions Club and lunch for the Kiwanis Club in the old Mixter Building.

She had quite and impact on the community. She provided lunch for two clubs at EUHS, the Huddle, and the Prayer Club.  She also provided lunch for Character Counts in Visalia and Women’s Ministries once a month starting at New Life Church in Exeter and most recently at Farmersville Assembly of God.

Mary was quite a prayer warrior.  There is no doubt if you knew her, she was praying for you. Pray Exeter was some thing she was very passionate about.  She prayed three days a week with local clergy.  They prayed for Exeter, all of the schools students, faculty and staff, and for our local, state and federal government and its agencies.  You can see her efforts all around Exeter.

She impacted her community in so many ways. Because of all of her hard work and dedication to others, she was awarded Woman of the Year in Exeter and the Apple Award for her commitment to our local schools.

Mary loved spending time with her family more than anything.  She traveled with her sisters, brother, daughters, grandchildren and friends.  She loved to garden, cook, bake and serve the Lord.

Mary will be deeply missed.  She was welcomed into heaven by her husband Wayne Scott, her parents Rev.Frank  and Florence Simpson, her sisters Wanda (Jeannie) Woolley, Dorcas Rico and her brother and Sister in law Tom and Ann Simpson.

Services for Mary will be held Friday, February 9 at 10am at New Life Church in Exeter.  Directly following services will be burial at Exeter District Cemetery.
