      Dorothea Francis Scott, age 86, passed away on Tuesday, April 9, 2002.
      Dorothea was born on January 10, 1916, in Jacksonville, Texas to Walter Lois and Alice Wilhelmina Francis. She grew up in Palestine, Texas where her father worked for the Missouri Pacific Railroad. After graduating from high school, she went to Lon Morris College and Sam Houston State University where she became one of the first women to earn a degree in Business Administration. At Sam Houston where she was elected queen of the college her junior year, she met the man who would become her husband, Arthur E. Scott, Jr.
      Following graduation in 1938, she postponed marriage for one year to pursue a career. She was soon employed by Shell Oil as executive secretary to the president. True to her word she married Scott on July 31, 1939, in Dallas, Texas. Dorothea and Scott spent their early years in Dallas, New Orleans, Long Beach, California, Williamsburg, VA and Whitesboro, Texas. She taught at the Whitesboro High School for several years. They moved to Corpus Christi on January 1, 1953, when Scott became Executive Director for Goodwill Industries of Corpus Christi. She eventually went to work for Goodwill Industries where she was employed for 29 years. She retired in 1982 as the executive director.
      Dorothea served as president of several elementary, junior high, and high school PTAs, and the City Council of PTA. She was also a district and state PTA officer. She was member of the following organizations: Sadler Study Club, P.E.O., Coastal Bend Genealogical History Club, City Federation, Presidents'' Council, Church Women United, Grace Presbyterian Church, and the athletic booster clubs at Carroll and Moody High Schools.
      During retirement she continued to be active in many of these clubs as well as enjoyed researching several family lines, collecting postal cards, and writing her memoirs.
      Her husband preceded her in death in 1984.
      She is survived by her three sons, Arthur E. "Ed" Scott III (Patsy) of Pearland, Texas, Walter Bruce Scott (Jill) of Corpus Christi, Texas, David Francis Scott (Andrea) of Colorado Springs, Colorado; her grandchildren, Sally Rene (Al) O''Rear, Linda Kay (Matt) Brown, Cora Christine Miller, Carliss Ann (Ford) Dillon, Courtney Elizabeth Scott, Lauren Allen Scott, Patrick Alexander Scott, Christopher David Scott; and seven great grandchildren.
