Betty Jane Scott

Betty Jane Scott, age 87, of Roscommon, died peacefully at The Brook in the presence and comfort of her family.
Betty was born July 5, 1931 in Detroit, Michigan, the daughter of John and Anna (Wilhelm) Sottrel.  She and W. H. “Scotty” Scott met while employed at Bower Roller Bearing and married on November 3, 1951 in Detroit, Michigan.  
The Scott family moved to Northern Michigan in 1973 and started Scott’s Wood Products.  Betty supported her husband and family in every way: preparing meals, keeping house, and raising three boys.  
One of Betty’s greatest joys in life was baking, a joy second only to watching others enjoy the fruit of her labors.  Betty treasured her family and faith above all else. 
Betty will be greatly missed by family and friends.  
She is survived by her sons: Chris (Margaret) Scott of Scottsdale, Arizona and Mark (Peggy) Scott of Roscommon; grandchildren: Danielle (Zach) Gerdes, Mandy (Jim) Kramer, Caroline (Steve) Schwab, Josh Scott, and Shannon Scott; six great-grandchildren; brothers John Sottrel and Al (Mary) Sottrel; sister Barbara (Bob) Constantino; and many nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends.
Betty is preceded in death by her parents, husband W. H. “Scotty” Scott (August 23, 2014), son Danny, and sister Ann Rychwalski.
Family and friends will gather on Sunday, March 3, 2019 from 3-5:00 p.m. with a Rosary Service at 5:00 p.m., at Wagner and Walsh Funeral Directors, 143 Lake Street, Roscommon, Michigan 48653.
