Mary Dodd Scott, 90 years, was born in Goldenrod, FL on November 8th, 1926, and passed away to be with the Lord on Thursday, July 13, 2017. Living almost her entire life in Goldenrod, Mary had been in declining health for some time. She was preceded in death by her father, Basil Corbett Dodd, and her mother Grace McDonnell, her sister Virginia Dodd Sutton , her brother, James Corbett, and her son, Corbett King Scott.

Mary was a life-long Baptist with many different churches, and was devoted to volunteering; working with both her daughter and granddaughter in the Seminole County school system for many, many years, and also volunteering with the Goldenrod Historical Society for many years as well.

Mary is survived by many: sister: Hessie Dodd Jones, two half-siblings: Stella Dodd and Basil Dodd, three children: Rufus Morrell Lynwood Scott, Russell Scott, and Melanie Scott Voltz. Mary has 5 grandchildren and 7 great grandchildren.

Mary was a nurse trained at Orange Memorial Hospital, graduating and then working there, until continuing her career as a supervisor with Sunland Hospital in West Orlando, and then ultimately retiring from Children’s Medical Services in Orlando for a career that lasted over 40 years as a nurse. Mary’s excellence and diligence in her career was acknowledged on many occasions by her superiors and was rewarded as warranted throughout her career lifetime.

Mary was deeply loved by all those who knew her – both family and her many friends. Her profound loss will leave a deep hole in our hearts, but she knew she would one day be in the hands of the Lord.

Memorial services will be held on Sunday, July 16th, 2017 at 12:30 pm at Mary’s home of worship, the Baptist Church of Maitland, 1950 Mohican Trail, Maitland, FL 32751, 407.628.5130, followed by a reception in the banquet hall of the same church. There will be no graveside service. Interment will be at Glen Haven Memorial Park, resting next to her son Corbett Scott.
