Roberta Jeanne Scott, 83, of Peachtree City, Georgia, passed into the presence of her Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, on Wednesday, March 17, 2021.
She was born to the late Reverend Dr. Myron and Mrs. Orma (Mewbourn) Cole on September 19, 1937 in Hollywood, California.
Roberta attended Cleveland High School in Portland, Oregon where she met Gerald C. Scott in the high school choir. They were married October 23, 1957 in Caldwell, Idaho.
Roberta and Gerald’s legacy of faith and love of music has been passed down to future generations. Roberta can be best described as thoughtful of others, generous to those in need, tenacious, resilient in challenges, beautiful, spunky in spirit, a contagious laugh, accepting of family and friends, and beloved by all.
