Frances Scott

March 31, 1922 — April 10, 2021


Frances Marie Scott went home to the Lord and her beloved Franklin peacefully on April 10th, 2021 in Broken Bow, Nebraska. Frances and Fern was born to Ralph and Elsie Spencer near Weissert, Nebraska on March 31s1, 1922. The attending doctor doubted she'd survive. Her family placed little Frances in a shoebox near the corn cob burning stove to keep her warm and she outlasted that prognosis by 99 years.

Frances was third of eleven children and attended country school. Growing up on a farm, Frances developed a solid work ethic and love of God. She worked several jobs during her lifetime, most notably during World War Two, when Frances and her sister Ellamae, served their country at a munitions plant in Grand Island, Nebraska. She married Franklin Leroy  Scott, Sr. in 1949 and the couple settled in Arnold, Nebraska. Together they raised Frank, Pat, Peg and Bonnie. Despite losing Franklin in 1975, Frances and her children moved forward. She was the proud grandmother  of Mesa and Sonny, and great grandmother to Kengy, Chance and Jace.

Frances was mother-in-law to Frank's wife Norna, and Bonnie's husband, J.P. Family meant everything to Frances. She was in her glory at the annual Spencer family reunion on Labor Day weekend. Frances was a cheerful morning person and was always singing hymns while she worked.

Frances is survived by her son Frank Scott (Norna), daughters Peg, Pat and Bonnie Scott (J.P. Skelly), two grandchildren Mesa Boersen (Chris) and Sonny Scott (Sarah), three great grandchildren Kengy Boersen, Chance Boersen and Jace Scott. Sisters Ellamae Moseley, Iola Purintan and Jean Olson. Frances was preceded in death by her beloved husband Franklin, a daughter Sandra Jean at birth, Frances' parents Ralph and Elsie Spencer, brothers Howard and Dick Spencer, sisters Fern Spencer (twin), Ethel Sams, Viola Lucas, Vivian York, Darlene Ahrens and Kathleen Payne.
