PIEDMONT – Our mother, Carol Chasteen Scott of Piedmont SC, passed away quietly at home in the early hours of March 13, 2017. She was 80 years young. Mama was born, lived and died within a 1 mile radius, in the Mill Village of Piedmont which she loved. While we will shed a tear at her passing, angels in heaven rejoice at her return.
Mama was born on August 24, 1936 to JT and Vessie (Galloway) Chasteen, the second of 4 children. She graduated from Piedmont High School in 1954, where she was elected as Miss High Miss her senior year. Mama and her high school sweetheart, Bobby Ray Scott, were married on July 2, 1954. She was the best mom in the world, as she stayed home with us until we started school. She worked in the textile industry for 37 years, beginning in the mill office in Piedmont and ultimately holding several administrative positions, with offshoot companies of J.P. Stevens.
Mama is survived by her husband Bobby of 62 years. And also by her children: Wayne “The Boss” (Julie) Scott of Layton UT, Robin “The Rebel” (Maria) Scott of Greenwood SC, Derallin “Junior” (Geary) Morrow of Piedmont, and Debbie “The Baby” (Ron) Best of Cross Hill SC. She had 14 grandchildren, 15 great grandchildren and 2 great-great grandchildren. Mama is also survived by her sister Margie Allen and sister-in-law Peggy Chasteen, both of Piedmont. She was preceded in death by her parents, two brothers, Ronald and Reggie Chasteen, one granddaughter Shalon Rogers, and one great granddaughter Caroline Reynolds.
Mama and Daddy provided a warm and loving home environment for us, which created a joyous childhood for each of us children. She had a way of making each of her grandchildren think that they were her favorite, in the way that she lovingly treated them and gave them individual attention. As her great grandchildren came along and she aged, her activity was less, but her love and enthusiasm for them was not.
Mama fought a noble battle with glioblastoma multiforme (GBM) during her last year of life. Last summer, a short 9 days after brain surgery, mama and daddy spent a week at the beach with much of her family where wonderful, lasting memories were made.
Please join us as we celebrate mama’s life with a visitation on Thursday, March 16, from 6:30 – 8:00 p.m. at Gray Mortuary, Pelzer.
The funeral service will be on Friday, March 17, at 11 a.m. in the mortuary chapel. Burial will follow at Greenville Memorial Gardens.
Memorials may be made to Open Arms Hospice, 1836 West Georgia Road, Simpsonville, SC 29680 or to Glioblastoma Cancer Research, American Cancer Society, 154 Milestone Way, Greenville, SC 29615.
The family is at the home.
