Jeannie V. Scott | Obituaries







On November 10, 2021, we lost our beloved wife, mother, grandmother and friend. When she entered the world, she cried and the world rejoiced. When she left this world, we cried and the heavens rejoiced.

Jeannie V. Scott was born in Billings to Martin and Nellie McPhee on September 23, 1941.

Jeannie met Jerry Scott who worked at St. Vincent Hospital while they were both attending Eastern Montana College. Jerry’s charm quickly won out, and they married in 1962 in Billings. After spending the first two years of their married life in Billings, they moved to Roberts. While starting his family, Jeannie obtained his bachelor’s degree in elementary education. After a year at Michigan State University, they moved to Bridger where they would raise their five children and be an integral part of the local community for over 50 years.

Jeannie’s house has always been a warm place where she made everyone feel welcome.

She got involved in her church through the Cursillo movement, Bible studies and the Altar Society. She has been active in area schools as a substitute teacher and as a volunteer. A lifelong learner, she loved games, puzzles, cooking, reading, calligraphy, art and most of all being with friends and family.

Jerry and Jeannie were married for 59 years and from this loving union six children were born: Sheri Scott (Steve Rossiter), Jeff Scott (Christy), Julie Scott, Noelle Dahle (Jimmy), Corey Scott and Roni Sider (Kevin ). She adored her six grandchildren, Cara, Connor, Zachary, Katie, Jack and Harrison.
