Dorothy Clementeyne Hardy Scott, age 87, passed away peacefully surrounded by her family on Sunday, March 11th, 2018 at home in Richmond, Kentucky. Clem was the daughter of Dell and J. Clement Hardy of Waycross, Georgia. She was born in Dunnellon, FL on February 19, 1931 but raised in Waycross. Clem attended the Brenau Womens College in Gainesville, GA and graduated from Texas Christian University with a degree in Christian Education. Passionate about education, Clem worked faithfully as the director of Childrens Christian Education in Georgia. She married Donald L. Scott in 1954, and the marriage produced two daughters, Lucinda Lee (Cindy) and Margaret Cardell (Marcy) Scott. The family lived in Lexington, Kentucky; Hartford, Connecticut; and Kinston, North Carolina. In 1967, the family moved to Richmond, Kentucky and Clem went on to attain a degree in Music Education from Eastern Kentucky University. She taught public education music in the Madison County school system for twenty-three years, including Kirksville Elementary, where she wrote a grant and received the first elementary school music writing computer program in Madison County. Clem was a member of First Christian Church and White Oak Pond Christian Church, both in Richmond, Kentucky, where she participated in the vocal and bell choir. Clem was an animal lover and enjoyed her kitty, Gracie. She loved all things music, including playing the piano and singing. She was a world traveler and a painter. Clem cherished time with her four grandchildren and three great-grandchildren. She was an avid reader, crossword puzzle solver, and bridge player. Clem had many friends, and faithfully volunteered for Project Read, Open Concern, and Meals on Wheels. Her last years were spent at Morning Pointe Assisted Living where she enjoyed playing piano and doing activities with her friends. A woman of quick wit and extraordinary kindness, anyone who knew Clementeyne Scott was a better person because of her. She is survived by her daughters, Cindy Case (Carleton), and Marcy Gagnon; her granddaughters, Nikki Adams (Scott), Victoria Case (Jon), Alexandra Robison (Chad), Caroline Case; her step-granddaughters, Brett Esders (Michael) and Erin Gagnon; and her great-grandchildren, Trenton and Tucker Adams, and Everett Robison. The memorial will be held at White Oak Pond Christian Church, Richmond, Kentucky on Saturday, March 17th.
