Scott, Dorothy

Aug. 30, 1922 – Nov. 12, 2013
Dorothy passed away at age 91 on Nov. 12, 2013, in Boulder, Colo. Her loving family never left her bedside through out her final days.
Dorothy Jane Scott was born Aug. 30, 1922, on a farm, in Ann Arbor, Mich. She was the daughter of Henry J. and Jane (Midgley) Forshee. They had four children, Dorothy, Virginia, Jim and Jessie.
Dorothy had a challenging adolescence. Her father, whom she adored, died when she was 11 years old. Dorothy, the eldest, and her three siblings had to work hard on the farm to help support the family. However, she did enjoy a variety of activities at a young age, including singing, art, 4-H and athletics including running, swimming and softball.
In her teens, Dorothy started to work at the Ford Motor Company on the assembly line. After a period of time, with great courage, she went to the supervisor and asked for a drafting job for the company. Her artistic talents were recognized and she was hired as a draftsperson for Ford.
In her early 20s, Dorothy was able to briefly attend the Chicago Art Institute, advancing her talents in art. Dorothy’s passion for art continued through out her life. She was self-taught and did beautiful calligraphy, dabbled in oil and watercolor and at 90 years old continued to create landscape paintings that will be cherished by her family.
Dorothy would have liked to attend college and had an interest in architecture design. In later years, Dorothy designed two family homes without any formal training.
Dorothy’s hobbies included collecting milk bottles and photos. The bottle collection was in honor of her father, a dairy farmer. She made more than 200 photo albums, with her final album of her first great-grandson.
Dorothy married Verne H. Scott in 1948. They moved to California where Verne was a professor at University of California at Davis.
Dorothy and Verne had three children — Patti, David and Jane.
Dorothy worked at the UCD Student Health Center and was known as a compassionate, caring and honest person in dealing with the personal concerns of the students.
Dorothy and Verne left Davis and moved to Boulder in 2000 to be closer to family.
Dorothy was loved by many because of her sincerity, compassion for others, love of nature, her beautiful singing and for her great sense of humor. She quietly took many under her wing to care and comfort.
She will be truly missed.
Dorothy is survived by her husband of 65 years, Verne H. Scott, and their three children, Patti Scott (Rick) Baier of Sonora, and David Scott and Jane Scott of Boulder; six grandchildren, Brian (Martha Susiarjo) Baier, Michael Baier, Katie Baier, Ryan Scott, Drew Scott, Kara Scott; the mother of her Colorado grandchildren, Anna Pettis Scott Kube; a great-grandchild, Arie Baier; her sister, Virginia A. Forshee, and stepchildren, Dick Amo, Scott Amo, Colleen (Fred) Swan; her brother, Jim Forshee, and his children Ann Forshee (Gerald) Crane and five children, and John Forshee; and sister Jessie Forshee (Donald) Siekmeier, and children Jim (Catherine Tall) Siekmeier and one child and Peter (Maria Stalford) Siekmeier.
Cremation has taken place. No services are planned at present and burial will be in Ann Arbor, Mich., at a later date.
Dorothy loved elephants. A memorial contribution can made to Save the Elephants World Wildlife Fund, www.worldwildlife.org, or WWF 1250 24th St. NW, Washington, D.C., 20090-7180
