Delores “Dee” McCay Scott

Delores “Dee” McCay Scott, Raytown, MO, was born in Apache, Oklahoma to Lucille and Oney McCay on December 26, 1935. She was baptized in the nearby St. Peter’s Lutheran Church. She grew up in a rural agricultural community with six siblings and graduated from Broxton High School.  Her first profession was a telephone operator at Southwestern Bell. She married Kent Scott on July 6, 1962 on a hot summer day in Altus, Oklahoma. Kent served in the Marine Corps, and later enjoyed a career in accounting. After being married, they relocated to the Kansas City area. They have one son, Mark Scott, who was born on May 8, 1967.  Dee worked at the Internal Revenue Service for many years and retired with twenty years of service. She was a member of Peace Lutheran Church since 1964 and was an active volunteer in the Sunday school and Vacation Bible school programs. She enjoyed visiting family in Oklahoma, and playing cards, board games, and bunco with her many friends.             

For the majority of her seventy-seven years of life, she enjoyed excellent health and participated in softball well into her forties.  She succumbed to a yearlong battle with lung cancer and passed away peacefully in her sleep on June 17, 2013. She was preceded in death by her parents Oney and Lucille McCay and her siblings Deveryl Tallant and Larry McCay. She is survived by her husband of 50 years, Kent Scott, and her son Mark, of Richmond, Virginia as well as four siblings Carolyn Love, Carl McCay, Gerald McCay, Wanda Pharris and two grandchildren, Elizabeth and Ryan Scott.  In lieu of flowers, donations in Dee’s name can be made to the Heartland Hospice Care. Services will be held at Peace Lutheran Church, 8240 Blue Ridge BLVD. in Kansas City at 11:00 a.m. with a visitation beginning at 10:00 a.m. on June 20, 2013.
