Barbara N. Scott

July 29,1936 – January 11,2020

Barbara N. “Deeta” Scott, 83, passed away peacefully at her home in Bumpass on Saturday, January 11, 2020. Barbara was born on July 29, 1936 to Charles and Edna Nicholas. She was preceded in death by her parents and her husband, Kenneth M. Scott Sr.; her sister, Eugenia N. Rigsby; brothers, Charles, Carlton and Cecil Nicholas; and her cherished dog, Moe. Barbara is survived by her daughter, Shirley Joel (Andy) of Richmond; her sons, Kenneth Jr. “Sonny” (Michelle) of Montpelier, Keith (Charlotte) and Kelly (Tammy) both of Bumpass; seven grandchildren; seven great-grandchildren; many nieces, nephews; friends and her dog, Bruno. Barbara retired after 42 years at American General Life and Accident Insurance in Richmond. She always greeted you with a smile and a hug. Barbara enjoyed playing bingo and the thrill of finding treasures at yard sales, but was the happiest when spending time at home with her children and grandchildren. The family would like to thank Hospice of the Piedmont and the many loving caretakers for all their help during this difficult time. A graveside service will be held at 11:30 a.m. on Monday, January 20 at the Thacker Family Cemetery, 2941 Willow Brook Road, Bumpass

    Dear Shirley,

    Please accept my sincere condolences for your Mother’s passing a few days ago. I only met your Mother a few times since you and Andy were married, but I know how close you were as a family and how loving and welcoming she was to all members of your family and their friends. I think you also inherited her “shopping gene” because you always bring little gifts to us that you just happened to find! I sincerely hope her last days under hospice care were gentle. As you know, my mother Birdie passed away almost a decade ago–but I still “talk” to her and she always find me parking spaces when I send up a request to Cloud Nine.

    My thoughts are with you, Andy, and Andrea during this sad time.
    Much love,

    We have all lost a very sweet and kind loved one and she remains with us forever. She has passed on to be with her husband and family that she missed so much that went before her. She waits with them for us in the future. We will always miss her until we meet again.

    Shirley and Family,
    Your mom always greeted everyone with a big smile. She was the happiest sweetest person anyone could ever know. She was like a second mom to me. No matter the circumstances she was always able to brighten your day. So much fun and enjoyment to be around.

    She will be missed greatly.

    All of you took such wonderful care of her and I know she loved her family very much. Family was her greatest joy.

    My sincere condolences and love to you and your family.
