Mrs. Rhoda Rebecca Scott
Thursday, August 28, 1930

Mrs. Rhoda Rebecca Scott was born in Lampasas, Texas February 28, 1853, the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Nimrod Hughes. Her parents died, leaving her an orphan at an early age and she was reared by friends and relatives. In girlhood she came to Llano County and was married to Mr. John Scott in 1873. To this union were born five children, Ernest O. Scott of San Antonio, Leslie C. Scott of Llano, Mrs. W.T. Rogers of Lone Grove, Mrs. T.F. Gray of Babyhead and Mrs. Nora S. Rogers who departed this life in 1908.

Grandma Scott as her many friends lovingly called her, had been in failing health for a long while, and had been under treatment of local physicians, as well as specialists in San Antonio, but in spite of all that loving hands and skill of science could do, she quietly passed away Friday morning, August 15, at 3:30am. The children were all present and also a step-son Wm. N. Scott of Adamsville, Lampasas county, and a grandson Artis Scott of San Antonio. The remains were laid to rest on Friday afternoon in the Hoover's Valley cemetery, across the Colorado River from Kingsland, by the side of her husband who had passed away July 29, 1907. The services were conducted by Elder Len V. Nobles, pastor of the Church of Christ in Eunis, Texas, and a lifelong friend of the family.

For many years deceased had been a loyal member of the Church of Christ and was ever found at the services if it were possible to attend. A noble woman has gone to her reward: her earnest Christian life of devotion to her family, her friends, and especially to her God, was such that her memory will long abide. She went about the duties of life cheerfully and discharged her obligations bravely with never a thought of self when duty called. She closed out a well-rounded career and merits the much desired rest in the Father's house. Those who know her best loved her most.

Tossed no more on life's rough billow
All the storms of sorrow fled
Death hath found a quiet pillow
For the aged Christian's head
Peaceful slumberg
Guarding now her lowly bed

Grandma Scott also left twenty grandchildren to mourn. To the loved ones left to mourn, the many friends tender their sincere sympathy but no words of ours can remove the burden of sorrow or mitigate their grief. We can but bow our heads with them and mingle our tears with theirs, for in death, we too have lost a noble friend. May a Higher Power do that which we cannot.

She has fallen asleep
She is resting at last
The pulse has grown still
And the fever is past
She suffers no longer
In heart or in brain
The pain that so racked her
Shall not come again
She has fallen asleep
O Mother, 'tis past!
Thank God as you weep
She is resting at last
- W.P.M.
