Elsie Dorathea Scott

In Memorial

With family at her side, Thea Scott – a truly gracious lady – went to be with her Lord on Saturday, August 13, 2011. Thea was born in Kowloon Hong Kong and was quite the world traveler in her young life. She was in the Philippines during WW 2 and it was there that she met Dave Scott. They were married in 1945 and their three oldest children were born in the Philippines. After coming to Canada, Thea became a much-loved addition to the Scott family. Dave and Thea had two more children and settled down to a Canadian life. Raising five children required a firm hand but also a sense of humour and Thea often surprised those around her with her dry wit and incredible insight.
Thea was a caring member of the Baptist church – a Sunday School teacher, she also served on many of the church committees. For many years she owned a Christian book store in Maple Ridge. Thea remained an avid traveler throughout her life and visited countries all over the world – England, Israel and China just to name a few. Later on, she became an active resident at Fraserview. In the last few years, Thea lived at Royal Crescent Garden – made some wonderful friends and always spoke very highly of the staff. Her time there was greatly enhanced by the loving care of her family, in particular the dedication of her daughter Catherine.
Thea leaves an incredible legacy and will be much missed by a large family including:
Her five children Catherine, David (Ruth), Susan, Mary (Jerry) and Ed (Debbi)
Grandchildren: Ian, David and Karen; Victor, Casey and Reba, Laura, Leilani and Shawn; Renee and Jennifer; Amanda, Hilary and Keelie
Great Grandchildren: Kiriva; Shauna and Ryan; Chelsea; Joey and Kiera; Jasper, Ian and Charlotte; Isabelle and Chloe
Great great grandchildren: Ben and Alyssa.
…and many many nieces and nephews!
She wrote this message for family and friends: “I shall be waiting for you”
and added “As for me it is good to be near God” from Psalm 73.
Thea joins all those who have gone before her and we hope they are celebrating a wonderful reunion.
Thanks for everything Mother – go with our love – you will be missed.
Celebration of Life Service: 1pm Friday August 19, 2011 at the Baptist Church – 22155 Lougheed Hwy Maple Ridge
In lieu of flowers, donations to McKenney Creek Hospice would be appreciated.

  1. I will truly miss working with her. She alway knew my dog’s Sophie and always forget my name. It always made me smile to know how much she loved Sophie. She has touched my heart and I will always remember her on wavering smile through the hard times.

    My prays and thoughts are with the family.
