Scott, Lois Marie

Lois M. Scott, 72, died Sunday, May 17, 2020 at her home in Calvert City, Kentucky. Lois was a homemaker, a mother of two boys and a grandmother to three grandchildren. Lois was born in Brevard, North Carolina on July 14th, 1947, to Donald T. Miller Sr. and Lois Fern Hiser Miller, the fourth of their seven children. Lois graduated from University High School in Normal, Illinois and became a registered nurse. She married Joe K. Scott on December 27th, 1966 at the Bethlehem Baptist Church in Cunningham, Kentucky. She worked at Decatur-Macon County Hospital in Illinois for a while then moved to Kentucky where she worked at Marshall County Hospital and Lourdes Hospital in Paducah, Kentucky. She suffered a back injury at work in 1989 that stopped her nursing career. She enjoyed reading murder mysteries; crocheting; her large collection of teddy bears; and spending quality time with her grandchildren. She wasn’t one for the spotlight, preferring to take a supporting role for those she held dear, but never hesitated to speak her mind when she felt the need. One could make the argument that her quiet and collected demeanor was the result of her childhood, having been put in Illinois’ foster care system with her brother Don. After leaving foster care, she rarely spoke about it. She is preceded in death by her parents, her sister Jean Lewis of Nebraska and brother, Eddie Miller of Illinois. She is survived by her husband of 53 years, Joe Kelley Scott; her sons, Matthew Scott of Paducah and Jason Scott of Calvert City; her three grandchildren, Madison, Nicholas, and Benjamin Scott; and her siblings, Wanda Gernand of Champaign, Illinois, Don Miller Jr. of Sycamore, Illinois, Cindy Grice of Rantoul, Illinois, and Peggy Perdue of Phoenix, Arizona. Funeral services for Lois M. Scott will be held at 1:00 pm on Friday, May 22, 2020, at Millner & Orr Funeral Home of Paducah with Rev. Todd Hawkins officiating. Burial will follow at Bethlehem Cemetery in Carlisle County. Visitation will be from 5:00 pm until 8:00 pm on Thursday, May 21, 2020 at Milner & Orr Funeral Home of Paducah.
