It is with great sadness that the family of Susan Scott (nee Brown) announce her passing after a long battle with Frontotemporal Dementia on February 23, 2021 in Chester County, Pennsylvania. Susan was preceded in death by her mother, Iris Brown and brother, John Brown. Susan leaves her husband, Dave Scott, sons Andy Scott and partner Mariel, Matt Scott and wife Jenn, granddaughter Olivia and father, Peter Brown.
Susan was born in Oldham, England on March 28, 1953 and moved to Bermuda at age ten when her father transferred there for work. After graduation from high school, Susan returned to London, England where she trained as a Radiographer at Guy’s Hospital, London, one of the premier teaching hospitals in the UK. Susan then worked in York, England where many of her family resided. In 1977 Susan returned to Bermuda and took up a position at King Edward VII Memorial Hospital in the X-Ray and Nuclear medicine department. Susan later moved to the Bermuda TB, Cancer and Health Association handling the X-Ray and Mammography department.
In October 1988 Susan emigrated to Wilmington, Delaware with her husband Dave as his company transferred its operations to the United States from Bermuda. The family moved to Kennett Square, Pennsylvania in 2000 after the family had done a five-year posting in London, England. In the United States Susan was very involved with her church activities firstly at St. David’s Episcopal Church in Wilmington, Delaware, then at Saints Andrew and Matthew Episcopal Church in Wilmington, Delaware and finally at the Episcopal Church of the Advent in Kennett Square, Pennsylvania.
Susan devoted much of her time volunteering for local charities particularly Adopt-A-Family, Delaware Women’s Shelter, Salvation Army Addiction Program, and St. David’s Nursery School. Susan enjoyed raising her family, particularly with the amount of business travel her husband Dave was required to do. She also enjoyed traveling with the family to many spots around the world providing her son’s with early experiences of alternate lifestyles to those in the USA. Susan also enjoyed gardening, the beach, boating, and in earlier years was a keen runner and then a daily walker putting in a good nine miles a day.
The family particularly would like to thank the Adult Senior Care Center staff, Kennett Square, who took care of Susan in the earlier part of her illness during the day from Monday to Friday, and subsequently the Sunrise Nursing Home located in Westtown when Susan required more extensive care than the family could provide at home. In both cases the level of care provided was outstanding.
A private service will be held at the Episcopal Church of the Advent at a date to be determined with interment of her ashes in the church Memorial Garden. A public memorial Service will be announced for a later date. In lieu of flowers the family recommends donations in Susan’s name to: The Episcopal Church of the Advent 401 N. Union St. Kennett Square, PA 19348. Arrangements are by Matthew Grieco of Grieco Funeral Home & Crematory, Inc. (484-734-8100). To view Susan's online obituary, please visit www.griecofunerals.com.
