Obituary for Nancy J. Scott

Nancy Jane Scott, 68, of North Ridgeville, OH, passed away on September 7, 2019 from complications of lifelong hypertension and Vascular Cognitive Impairment. She was the eldest daughter of George Milo Scott and Donna Jean (Errett) Scott born on August 8, 1951. She was preceded in death by both parents and is survived by her sister, Susan Marie Scott, North Ridgeville, OH.
Nancy devoted her life to teaching first and third grade at Liberty Elementary School in North Ridgeville, OH. She was a graduate of Otsego High School in 1969 and Bowling Green State University in 1972, with a bachelors degree in elementary education and a minor in music. She earned her masters degree from BGSU in 1974. She retired from teaching in 2009. Many of her former students said that she was a tough teacher, but they appreciated how she made learning fun and how she thought of them all as her own children. Her students knew they would get unconditional love and caring from her.
Growing up Nancy loved being in the Otsego High school bands, playing piano and organ for churches and weddings and she was involved in the North Ridgeville Community Theatre. During farming season, she also drove tractor and worked in the fields on the family farm. She was recognized several times in Who’s Who of American Teachers, a publication where students and parents can honor an outstanding teacher. Nancy adopted kids every year for Christmas through North Ridgeville Community Care, hoping to bring some happiness to kids that didn’t have much. She was a former member of the Calvary United Methodist Church, Tontogany and Fields United Methodist Church, North Ridgeville. Nancy played organ and piano for both churches, sang in the church choir and directed the children’s choir. She was a member of Oriana Rebeckah Lodge for several years and the Togany Teens and Petites 4-H Club, earning top honors for her projects. She loved traveling, kitties, and was an avid fan of the Cleveland Indians. Nancy and her sister visited many of the MLB ballparks following her beloved Cleveland Indians.
