Obituary for Gaynell Walsh Scott

Mrs. Gaynell Scott, age 90 of Boomer, passed away peacefully Friday, June 1, 2018 at Westwood Hills Nursing and Rehabilitation Center. A private family viewing will be held at Reins Sturdivant Funeral Home Sunday. Entombment will be in Scenic Memorial Gardens Mausoleum.

Mrs. Scott was born May 6, 1928 in Wilkes County to Jesse Albert and Alma Dell Holbrook Walsh. She graduated from Wilkesboro High School and went on to receive her cosmetology license. She was a talented homemaker who enjoyed sharing her creative sewing skills and time with family and friends. Mrs. Scott enjoyed volunteering at Boomer Ferguson Elementary as a grade mother. She volunteered at Wilkes Central High School where she sewed band uniforms and flags for the Marching Eagle Band. She was a member of Zion Hill Baptist Church and a former member of the Boomer Fire Department Ladies Auxiliary. She enjoyed cooking, sewing, crafting, music, pets, camping, boating, and riding motorcycles in her youth. Her independent and adventurous spirit resonated with all who loved her, including many friends and extended family in Pigeon Forge Tn, and at Greenfield Campground in West Jefferson, NC.

In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her husband of 69 years, Bill Scott, and one granddaughter, Lori Ann Scott. She is survived by one daughter, Billie Jo Scott and fiancé, Terry Walker of North Wilkesboro; one son, Douglas Steven Scott and wife Sandra of Boomer; one granddaughter, Staci Hining and husband Kevin; three great grandchildren, Morghan Bass, Lillie Hining and Miller Hining, and many other friends and extended family.

The family would like to extend a heartfelt thank you to their Westwood Hills Nursing and Rehabilitation Center family and friends who watched over and cared for Mrs. Scott during her time there. The kindness and compassion that she was shown was exceptional.
