Mary Elizabeth (Thomas) Scott

March 25, 1954 ~ August 4, 2023 (age 69) 69 Years Old


Mary Elizabeth (Thomas) Scott, 69, peacefully passed away on Friday, August 4, 2023, at home surrounded by her loved ones who supported her wishes through her battle with colon and lung cancer. Mary was born in St. Augustine, Florida on March 25,1954, to Doyle P. Thomas and Frances S. Thomas.

Mary is preceded in death by her loving husband, Bill Scott; her father; an infant brother, Steven Craig Thomas; and her brother, Doyle P. Thomas, Jr. (Tommy). She is survived by her mother; two sisters, Brenda Thomas Mathews (Don) and Sandra K. Thomas, all of Evans, Georgia; as well as five nieces and nephews, Mickey Williford-Chavarria (German), Kelly Williford-Fanning (Dustin), Shaun P. Thomas (Taylor), Chelsea M. Mathews, and W. Blake Mathews (Brittney); and nine grandnieces and grandnephews.

Mary graduated from Hephzibah High School with honors in June 1972. She was accepted into the nursing program at the Medical Center of Central Georgia in Macon, Georgia. She earned her Bachelor of Science in Nursing in November 1975. Mary’s nursing skills took her to Atlanta, Georgia, El Paso, Texas, Charleston, South Carolina, and back to Augusta, Georgia. Mary’s love for caring took her to St. Joseph Hospital (now, Piedmont Summerville) where she worked for 15 years. During Mary’s time in the emergency room, she received many accolades and honors which often appeared in the local newspaper.

After meeting the love of her life, Bill, Mary moved to Lumberton, North Carolina where she ran an Alzheimer’s unit at a local assistant living facility. She soon took a position with the administration with the local hospital maintaining 21 clinics in her area. After losing Bill in a motorcycle accident, Mary retired and moved back to the Augusta area along with her parents, where she was their primary caregiver. She was a blessing to us all!

The family would like to thank Pruitt Health Care. We give a big thanks with a bucketful of love to RN: Tralica, CNAs: Mattie and Shelia, Social Worker: Genevieve, Pastor Robbie, and on-call RNs: Denny and Katie.

In lieu of flowers, the family asks that those wishing to honor her memory make donations in her name to the Alzheimer's Association.
