Vivian Lois (Cox) Scott
Bangor and South Princeton - Vivian, such a wonderful gift of life, passed with peace and grace at the age of 92 on October 11, 2019, surrounded by her loving family. Vivian, the wife of the late Ernest S. Scott, was born on July 7, 1927, the daughter of William and Ethel Cox. Together they raised three girls in Grand Falls (Kellyland), Maine. Born in Baileyville (Woodland), Maine, she was a loving and devoted wife, mother, and Nanny, and was the center of her family's world. She was an avid gardener and could be found in her gardens at the crack of dawn each summer day. She loved nature, spending many hours tramping through the woods with her daughters and grandchildren. Kellyland was always a place that Viv and her family could call home. Her family will cherish those memories of Kellyland and will continue to carry on the tradition of homecoming. Singing and dancing were two of her favorite past times. She was a great cook and never needed to follow a recipe. She attended local schools and graduated from Woodland High School. She loved sports, playing volleyball into her eighties. She worked for several years at Treworgy Pharmacy, and for the hot lunch program at Woodland schools. She also worked at the greenhouse in Kellyland, and was a cook for Atlas Construction in Grand Falls. She was a member of Eastern Star, and a communicant of the People's United Methodist Church in Woodland.
She was predeceased by her husband, her mother and father and three brothers, Leigh, Bud, and Jack, all of Baileyville. She is survived by her daughters, Barbara Wheaton of Hampden, Maine; Phyllis Wheaton and husband Jonathan of Alexander, Maine; Vicki Martin and husband Lou of Bangor, Maine. Grandchildren Wendy Wing, Leigh Busque, Robin Gagner, Jill Moffitt, Patricia Clark, Timothy Clark, and Karen McArthur; eighteen great- grandchildren, and several nieces and nephews.
A memorial service in her honor will be held on Saturday, November 2, at 11 am at the People's United Methodist Church in Baileyville, Maine. Interment for Vivian and her husband "Bungy" (Ernest) will be held at the South Princeton cemetery following the service.
For those wishing to make memorial contributions in her memory, please consider spending time with someone in need of companionship.
