I was sorry to learn of Ann's death, but God graced her with a long and productive life. I appreciated so much Ann's love for the Church and her commitment to all we shared in the parish when I was pastor of St. Mary's Parish in Potsdam. She was loved and respected by many. May God show her great mercy and may she rest in peace!

Ann will be missed by not only her family but the community. Ann lived next door to my mother at Mayfield Apts. and would pop over for a 5 minute visit 2-3 times a day, mom loved it. She was a special lady and touched many lives. Donna (Arquette) Baker

Our deepest Sympathy goes to Ann Scott's family and friends. She had such a large family and so many friends. Everyone loved Ann, including our family. When we first moved to Hannawa, she stopped me when I was walking home from the Post Office. This was over 20 years ago. She asked me where I moved from, and I told her California. She said her Grandson just moved back here from CA and his wife, Mary, was from there. It turned out that Mary's daughter and my daughter were the same age. We became very good friends and spent years together with our children. Our girls Kelsey and Victoria are still best friends, and it was all Ann's doing. She also use to bring me homemade bread fresh from the oven. Her kindness touched me like no other. She was an amazing women and will be missed so much!! Love From, Sondra, Jim, Victoria & Lee Hamilton

Mrs. Scott has always had a special place in my heart. My second grade teacher at Morley School, she played a big part in my life. She was a kind, thoughtful person. I remember one day very vividly--my classmates and I were with her the day President Kennedy was shot. I am very sorry for your loss--Mrs. Scott was a very special person and will be missed by many.
