Claudia Ann Scott was the first of seven children born to Robert Hogue Scott and Martha Jane Farwell of Placentia, California, later of Grants Pass, Oregon. She graduated from Grants Pass High School, and attended Washington University in St. Louis Missouri. Claudia was a woman who never married. She was a member of the Lavender Woman Collective, which published a Lesbian Newspaper from Chicago for many years.
She was survived by her parents, six siblings, Jim (Glenna) Scott; Nancy (Bill) Eicher; Patty (Larry) Small; David (Allison) Scott; Donald (Leah) Scott; and the late John Robert Scott, by a niece, Ciara Scott, and two nephews, Stan James Scott and Stephen Lee Scott. She is also survived by her three previous life partners; Jody Lynch, Stephanie Lee, and Frances Hanckel, as well as countless friends who experienced her suicide as a personal tragedy.
A well respected Poet, Claudia's poetry was published in Lavender Woman, beginning in 1972. Her writing was also published in "The Lesbian Tide."
In her life she completed three books of poetry, "In This Morning,"which was published in 1980 by Tree Frog Press, another of which was left undisturbed in her papers.
A few years after her death, a selection of her poetry was published, Edited by Frances Hanckel, titled "Lesbian Poet: Claudia Scott." Claudia strongly disliked being called "A lesbian poet." She preferred to be called a Poet. "Poetry," she observed, "is not sexually active, has no partners of any gender."

Rest in Peace.
