Josephine Scott Duell, affectionately known as Scottie, died peacefully on Friday evening, the 8th of December, in her home at the Village at Summerville. She was born March 11, 1936, in New York City, a daughter of the late Josephine Scott Smith Duell of Charleston and the late Charles Halliwell Duell, a New York book publisher. She was predeceased by her sister, Dr. Anne Duell Morgan, of Charleston. Scottie was a direct descendant of both Arthur Middleton and Edward Rutledge, signers of the Declaration of Independence and she was also directly descended from Robert Smith, South Carolina's first Episcopal Bishop and the founding president of the College of Charleston. Her maternal grandparents were the late J. J. Pringle Smith and Heningham Lyons Ellett Smith, the garden restoration pioneers who began their preservation work at Middleton Place in 1925. After spending most of her earlier life in Connecticut, Scottie moved to South Carolina in 1988. In 2015 she became a resident of The Village at Summerville where she lived happily for the remainder of her life. Scottie was admired for her artistic talent and her fun-loving personality that left most everyone she encountered laughing and smiling. Scottie's friends and family and caregivers will be invited to attend a service of celebration and committal at Middleton Place at a later date. In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to the Middleton Place Foundation. Visit our guestbook at www.legacy.com/obituaries/ charleston
