Mary "Connie"'s Story
Mary Constance (Connie) Scott was born May 28, 1947 in Dalton, Georgia, the daughter of W. L. Bramlett and Ava Nell Bramlett. She attended Dalton Junior College before she met the love of her life, Frank Scott on Halloween 1968. She volunteered as a Gray Lady at Hamilton Memorial Hospital and also volunteered with the American Cancer Society as a young adult. Upon marrying Frank and adopting their two precious daughters, Ann and Juli, she devoted her life to her family.
Connie loved to entertain, cook, and had exquisite taste in decor. She was very generous and loved to give people gifts. She loved to travel and especially loved New Orleans and the beach. While Connie will be remembered for so many things, she will be especially remembered for her adoration of babies and children. After her two daughters graduated high school and attended college, she became a nanny for three families at various times. She was especially proud to be a part of John Eric Miller's life. She cared for John Eric from two months until he attended McCallie School. In recent years she often reminded us that her grandchildren are what she lived for. Undeniably, Elli and Spencer were instrumental in keeping her going while her health was faltering. She loved them more than life.
Upon the death of her husband on Halloween 1985, Connie carried on Frank's emphasis on the children getting an education, even continuing his tradition of paying money for good grades. She fostered her girls' sense of adventure and encouraged them to be independent. Connie helped to foster a sense of fairness and justice with her girls when viewing the world. She taught them to be sympathetic to others.
Connie's spiritual journey with her Lord and Savior was nothing short of amazing. She loved God and was ready to enter the Kingdom of Heaven. Without a doubt, she was surrounded by choirs of angels as she ascended into heaven.
The family would like to thank numerous friends, many of whom were as close as family, surrounding Connie with love and joy over the years. They are especially grateful for Dr. Don Thomas and family, Dr. John Land, Dr. Ahmed as well as Hamilton Home Health and Hospice for their dedication and compassionate care, which will never be forgotten.
Connie is preceded in death by her husband: Frank Scott, father: W.L. Bramlett, mother: Ava Bramlett, and a step son: Clay.
She is survived by two daughters: Ann Scott and Juli Scott Hayes, a son in law: whom she loved like a son, Don Hayes, Jr., two grandchildren" Elli and Spencer, sister: Marie Bramlett Thomas and brother in law, Tim, as well as several cousins.
