Sue Armitage Scott

April 18, 1930July 4, 2019

Beloved mother, grandmother, and great grandmother, Sue Armitage Scott passed with strength, peace, and spirit into God’s hands on July 4th, 2019 at the age of 89. She was able to leave as she lived-on her terms and in her own time.

Born on April 18, 1930 to Elton and Minnie Evelyn Armitage, Sue was a lifetime resident of the Dallas-Fort Worth Area. She graduated as part of Highland Park High School Class of 1947. In 1954, she met the love of her life Cecil Scott of Henderson, Kentucky while on vacation, and they were later married in November of the same year. Together, they had two children, Cynthia and David. Sadly, her beloved husband was killed in October of 1961 in a military accident. Sue spent the greater part of her adult life working in health care with the purchasing department first for St. Paul Hospital and then later for Doctor’s Hospital. She retired from Doctor’s Hospital in 1996. After retiring from purchasing, she enjoyed working part time as card distributor for American Greetings.

Sue was an avid sports fan. While she loved all sports from tennis to golf to basketball, her favorite was always football. Sue was a loyal fan of the Dallas Cowboys through the good, the bad, and the ugly, and she could be found most Sundays during the fall in front of a TV watching her ‘Boys. Sue’s other love was traveling. She spent much of her early retirement traveling to different places in the United States with either her sister Sally and her husband Bill or her sister-in-law Lucille. While she traveled to many locations in the United States and Canada, her fondest memories came from trips to the Port Aransas on the Texas Coast with family.

Above all things, Sue was devoted to family and friends, and she was the happiest when she could give herself in service of those she loved. She enjoyed dinners and holidays with her sisters and their families here in the Dallas area and trips to San Antonio to see her brother and his family. Along with her own children, Sue helped raise her nephews and eldest granddaughter, and she continued a strong bond with her mother-in-law even after the death of her husband. She loved being Maga to her granddaughters. In more recent times, she loved to spoil her great-grandson rotten with toys and attention, and she hated going a day without her stories from Grayson.

She is preceded in death by her parents Elton and Minnie Evelyn Armitage, husband Cecil Scott, daughter Cynthia Smith, brother Herbert Armitage, sister Jane Keyes, and mother-in-law Josie Scott. She is survived by her son David Scott, granddaughter Elizabeth Barnhart and her husband Brett, granddaughters Kaitlyn and Emmalee Smith, great-grandsons Grayson and Lucas, her sister Sally Hendricks, and sister-in-law Lucille Armitage along with many nieces and nephews.

A graveside service will be held on Tuesday, July 9, 2019, at 10:30 AM at Sparkman/Hillcrest Cemetery.

Sue was such a warm and caring person in my life. She will be greatly missed by all that loved her. She played a large part in my life and I will never forget her and her loving daughter, Cindy. No more sorrow, no more pain.

Peace be with your family-
