Mary E. Scott, 72, of Mahomet, a beloved wife, mother, grandmother, and friend passed away peacefully on November 9, 2023 surrounded by her loved ones. She was born on April 28, 1951, in Champaign, IL. She married John Scott on January 18, 1969. Mary was a loving, caring, and exceptional individual who was known for her strong family orientation and giving nature. She will be dearly missed by all who knew her.
Mary is survived by her husband, John Scott, her daughters Kimberly (Shannon) Wygant and Alicia Scott. She was also a beloved grandmother to Correy (Katie) Wygant, Cameron Wygant, Zach (Bailey) Wygant, Lakricia (Ryan) West, Sabryn Scott, Hailee Evens, Faith Evens, Kiara Evens, and great grandmother to Kendyl, Carter, Camden, Noah, Liam, Hunter, Maddox, Boston, Beckham, and Emersyn. Her sister Christine Randall, her brothers-in-law William (Michele) Scott and Richard Ford, many nieces and nephews, and life-long best friend Brenda Kinkade.
Mary was preceded in death by her mother Kathryn Woodruff, brothers Bud, Richard, Dan, sister Mary-Jane, mother-in-law Joyce Scott, father-in-law William Scott, and sister-in-law Kitty Ford.
Throughout her career, Mary worked at Lil' Porgy's for over ten years, started her own home daycare, and later retired from Walmart. She was dedicated and diligent in her work, leaving a lasting impact on those she served. Mary was a pillar of the community and actively contributed to various causes. She started “cool kids” arcade, soup kitchen, and Little is Much food pantry, demonstrating her selflessness and commitment to helping others. Her most prized accomplishment was taking care of, supporting, and watching her family grow and succeed throughout her years.
Our beloved mother and grandmother was a remarkable woman who opened her arms and heart to everyone she met. She fought many battles over the years and did so with grace and compassion for others. She adored her family and loved each of her children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren immensely. She enjoyed spending time with her family and watching all of them grow up. She especially enjoyed giving the little ones Hershey chocolate bars any chance she could to sweeten up their day. Her loving spirit is unmatched and will be greatly missed.
In accordance with Mary’s wishes, she will be cremated and friends may greet the family at a Visitation from 2:00-4:00pm on Saturday, Nov. 18, 2023 at Blair-Owens Funeral Home, 102 E. Dunbar, Mahomet. The memorial service will begin at 4:00. Interment will be private.
We thank the OSF ICU hospital staff for their kindness and sympathy during her final moments with us. We especially want to thank Dr. Broman, Dr. Hajal, and Nurse Practitioner Carol along with her nursing staff Nadir, Hunter, George, Justin, and Kalista.
This is a great loss felt by all, most of which, her family who loved her deeply. Our hearts are broken but we know this is not a goodbye but a see you later.
