PUTNAM — Patricia M. Scott, 86, made her peaceful transition Monday, December 17, 2018 at Matulaitis Rehab and Skilled Care.
She is survived by her loving husband of 62 years, Ian Macdonald Scott. She also leaves four beloved daughters, Keri S Patterson and her husband Scott Patterson of NH, Sue Scott Weber of CT and grandson Donald Weber Jr. of CT, Alison Scott Cloutier and her husband Paul Cloutier of CT, and Kimberly Scott Nadreau and her husband David Nadreau of RI.
She was a 1954 graduate of Moravian College for Women in Bethlehem, PA with a degree in English and active in dramatic arts. In her early married life, she sang professionally and continued with her love of music throughout her adult life.
A devoted and spiritually-minded wife and mother, she was an active member in each church where her husband’s work took the family including area churches Wilton Presbyterian and Jesse Lee Memorial United Methodist. She participated in vocal and bell choirs, book studies, and was instrumental in building the Jesse Lee church library. Participating in performances of Handel’s Messiah was a holiday tradition. As a musical family, she and her husband Ian passed this life-long love of music on to their children.
Another gift of Pat’s was in caretaking. In addition to raising her family, she ran a home daycare for almost twenty years providing a nurturing environment for the children of many working families. She also provided varying levels of daily care to aging family members for years. Her love and care of others was never ending.
Memorial service to be held at First Congregational Church of Woodstock, CT, Saturday, January 5, 2019 at 11:00 am. The family requests that donations in her memory be made to Matulaitis Nursing Home, 10 Thurber Road, Putnam, CT 06260, or the Alzheimer’s Association at alz.org.
