She married the love of her life, Melvin L. Scott, on September 1, 1973 in Ponca City, OK. She spent many years of her adult life as the office manger for Mel Crisp Construction, but many remember her as the office manager/bookkeeper at American Legion Huff-Minor Post 14 where she worked for the 14 years prior to her retirement. She and Melvin were members of the local Elks Lodge and Moose Lodge. She was a life-long member of St. Mary's Catholic Church where throughout the years she volunteered on various committees and the Church Women United.
She will always be remembered for her infectious laugh. She was full of life and always ready for an adventure. Her greatest joy was her family. She and Melvin spent many weekends camping with their children and extended family, fishing, and enjoying the outdoors. But her best known hobby was cooking. She was "famous" for her homemade chicken and noodles and many other specialty dishes. She loved to cook huge meals for her children and grand children where they would gather at her and Melvin's home. There was always room at the table and plenty of food for any drop-by guests. A favorite family Christmas gift was a cookbook that she and Melvin presented with all the favorite recipes they had cooked throughout the years. Recently, she was absolutely thrilled that she had the opportunity to hold and love on her new great-granddaughter. It was with great anticipation that she joined her love, Melvin, in heaven.
She is survived by daughter, Annette Newcomb and husband Michael of Ponca City, OK; son, David Scott and wife Angie of Ponca City, OK; daughter, Gina Cruz and husband Billy of Edmond, OK; sister, Josephine Lewis and her husband Ronnie of Yukon, OK; sister-in-law, Bertalene Richardson of Marlow, OK; brother-in-law Wayne Scott and wife Charlene of Odessa, TX; brother-in-law Lyndell Shoemaker of Kechi, KS; sister-in-law Penny Hart of South Fork, CO.

Melvin was born on May 23, 1942 to Bert and Lola (Hemphill) Scott in Tryon, OK. He attended Tryon grade school before his family moved to Marlow, OK. He graduated from Marlow High School where he played on the 1960 State Championship football team with his brother Wayne and many lifelong friends.

Melvin's greatest joy was his close family and friends. He and Jean Anne loved to camp with their children and extended family several weekends ever summer. Throughout the years you could find him golfing, fishing and backyard grilling with the family. He took great pride in serving his delicious grilled steaks and burgers, and he was thrilled when his "secret" ham recipe was featured in Ponca City News.

But most of all, his children and grandchildren will think about him and his amazing faith for our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. He happily became a member of St. Mary's Church in 1982.
