Priscilla Louise Scott EAST BARRE — Priscilla Louise Scott, aged 90, entered Heaven on Friday, Aug. 16, 2019, from the Central Vermont Hospital Center Palliative Care room surrounded by her loving family and some of her favorite music. Priscilla was born May 24, 1929, in Barre, to Forrest and Clara (Fuller) Tucker. She was the youngest of five children all raised on a Chelsea farm. Priscilla delighted in learning and attended local schools, ultimately graduating from a Vermont business college. On July 1, 1950, she was married to Allen W. Scott of Washington and together, they raised their family in East Barre, where they also continued to enjoy their retirement years. Priscilla worked in a secretarial position at CVH and grew to become executive assistant to the hospital president. She retired after 30 years of service but continued to contribute to her community by volunteering at the CVH gift shop, the Benefit Shop in Barre, and was a generous, lifelong supporter and donor to the Central Vermont Humane Society. Priscilla loved animals and the outdoors for all seasons. She was an avid gardener and adored her backyard wildlife. As active snow machine riders, Priscilla and Allen helped form the Snow Bees Snow Machine Club. Later, she looked forward to spending winters in Florida but was always glad to return home. She was a member of the VFW and American Legion and loved to dance and socialize and had remarkably good luck playing bingo. Priscilla and her family shared particular pride in her nephew, Philip, becoming governor of the State of Vermont. Priscilla’s life was rich with love as family doted endlessly on her and she, on them. Priscilla and her husband, Allen, remained deeply in love throughout their marriage. Allen would hold her close and sing favorite romantic songs to her while they danced together in the kitchen of their family home. Allen passed away Nov. 30, 1998, having professed his love for his wife throughout their marriage and upon his death. Priscilla was also predeceased by infant daughter Barbara and siblings Wilbur Tucker, Donald Tucker, Dorothy (Tucker) Howard and Phyllis (Tucker) Kitson. Priscilla is survived by her children Roy Scott, of Calais, Bradley Scott, of Florida, and Pam Hull (Scott) of Barre; as well as grandchildren Melyssa Ardelle, Carol Scott, Jeremy Scott, Lee Scott, Justin Scott; and her beloved great-grandchildren and great-great-grandchildren. She had an especially loving relationship with great-granddaughters Rey (Mulcahy) Pamela Jones and Jaime Lagerstedt. Priscilla leaves care of her cherished pup, Chocolate, to trusted family. Special thanks to the kind nurses at CVH, her primary care physician, Dr. Robert Robinson, and Barre EMT Joe Aldsworth. Also many thanks to Mount Pleasant Cemetery in St. Johnsbury for their service and guidance with handling after-life care in a private family setting. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to Central Vermont Humane Society, P.O. Box 687 Montpelier, VT, 05601. A gathering celebrating Priscilla’s life will held Sept. 17th at the VFW, in Montpelier, from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m.

Your Mom my Aunt Priscilla was always a smiling warm and kind Aunt to Don and I. My Uncle Allen and her were a special couple. We shared many laughs and good times. It is so sad when loved ones pass but we are so blessed by their lives and sharing. God Bless- The AZ Ordways
