Valarie Scott, 72, of Rocky Mount, North Carolina, passed away peacefully Sunday, December 09, 2018 Due to cancer and congestive heart failure. Valarie was born to David, and Linda, July 01, 1946 in Raleigh, North Carolina.
Valarie graduated from Southeast Raleigh High in 1965. She eloped and married her longtime friend and love, Ryan in 1975, and they lived together in Rocky Mount.
Valarie is survived by 1 child: Brooke. She also is survived by 3 grandchildren.
Valorie loved to love on people. She sewed dolls and little quilted sayings constantly. Her hands were rarely still. For many years Valorie worked at Atria/Crossland's Retirement Community in Raleigh.
Her life was a living example of her favorite Bible verse, Ephesians 4:32 — “And be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving one another, just as God also forgave you in Christ.”
“I was given the gift of life, and now I have to give it back. This is hard. But I was a lucky woman, who led a lucky existence, and for this I am grateful. I first got sick in January 2010. When the cancer recurred last year and was terminal, I decided to be joyful about having had a full life, rather than sad about having to die. Amazingly, this outlook worked for me.
At any rate, I am at peace. And on that upbeat note, I take my mortal leave of this rollicking, revolving world-this sun, that moon, that walk around Green Lake, that stroll through the Pike Place Market, the memory of a child’s hand in mine.”
