Scott, Carolyn A.

July 15, 1948 - September 8, 2017

Carolyn Ann Garner was born in Urania, Louisiana on July 15, 1948 and raised in Houma, Louisiana to her parents Ruth Durham and Horace Furman Garner. Carol was a graduate of Terrebonne High School in 1966.  She met Tommy James and they married in 1969 and had two sons together before Tommy lost his battle to cancer in 1980.  She married Dale Scott in 1987. Dale was tragically taken in a car accident in 2003. She was a successful local business woman for several years in Houma and worked hard at everything she did. She passed down her work ethics and moral values to her boys which has made them successful to this day.

Her sons are Christopher James and Brian James. Chris is engaged to Rina Oh and has 4 children: Ashley James who is married to Nick Pizzigno and resides in Florida, Amy Fischer who is married to Dustin Fischer and resides in Florida, Alexi James who resides in Missouri, and Andrew James who resides in Louisiana. Brian James is married to Lucille Pellegrin James and they have 3 children: Cameron, Gabriel and Isabella James who all reside in Carrollton Texas.

Carol enjoyed traveling, however, her passion was being home with her children and grandchildren, cooking, sewing, gardening, and rooting for the Dallas Cowboys.  In the latter years of her life, she encountered and bravely fought a great battle with lung cancer and heart disease that not only weakened her, but took her to Carrollton, Texas where her sons had also moved to and they cared for her in the last years of her life.

Carol’s final battle took place on September 8, 2017. She then went from the arms of her family to the wings of the Angels leading her to our heavenly Father where there is no sorrow or tears. Although we will miss her, we live with peace of the promises made by our Lord. We know she is no longer sick and this knowledge can comfort us in times of grief and sorrow.

The family wishes to thank everyone who came today. We know she touched many lives. She was an incredible woman who had many fascinating stories to tell. She will forever live on in our hearts and minds.  She was truly unforgettable.

May she rest and rejoice in our Lord’s presence forever.

A celebration of life service for Carolyn Ann Scott, age 69, of Carrollton, Texas will be held at 4:00 P.M., Wednesday, September 13, 2017 at ARIA Memorial Chapel with Rev. Jerry Hays Officiating.
