Barbara I. Scott, 75, entered into rest on October 30, 2013 in Manteca, CA. She was born on August 10, 1938 in San Francisco, CA where she attended Presentation Elementary, Presentation High School and City College . She is preceded in death by her husband Stanley F. Scott. As matriarch of a large family, she is survived by her four children, Leighanne Moon, Lisa Redmond, Lori Scott-Nunes, Jim Cochran and their loving spouses and children. Barbara was blessed to enjoy time with her 10 grandchildren and 14 great-grandchildren. She has one surviving sister, Sharon O’Donnell.
For 30 years Barbara worked in accounting for several different companies including Xerox, E.J. Gallo, One Touch and Hitachi. For the past year, Barbara’s extended family grew to include the residents and staff at Merrill Gardens. Her warm, welcoming personality allowed her to make friends easily. She was always fun-loving with a mischievous twinkle in her eye. She had a competitive side to her which always came out when playing a challenging game of cards, Dominoes or Scrabble with family and friends. She had a flair for cooking and loved to feed everyone around her. Barbara had a distinct way about her that allowed others to feel individually special and welcomed as family in a non-judgmental way; she was truly a Godsend to many. Barbara will be deeply missed; she will forever be in the hearts of the ones who knew and loved her.
