Sarah Scott

Sarah Scott Sarah "Dorothy" (Dennis) Scott, 82, of Biloxi, and former long-time resident of Meridian died Feb. 20, 2019, at Gulfport Memorial Hospital.
Ms. Scott was born July 2, 1936, in Reserve, St. John's Parish, La. She was the daughter of Edwin Lamar Dennis Sr. and Maurice Garmany Dennis. She attended Laboratory School at Louisiana State University all of her school years, and attended L.S.U., graduating with a BS degree in Elementary Education. During her sophomore year at L.S.U. she met Billy Scott and they were married in 1957, just before her senior year.
She retired from Meridian Community College, where she served as a Technical Vocational Reading Instructor for 22 years. She was a member of the Methodist Church, a member of Meridian Mississippi Square and Round Dance Association, and the Meridian Camping Club for many years. Ms. Scott was a loving spouse, mother, friend, and loved planting and growing beautiful hanging baskets and potting plants. Her most favorite pastimes were taking care of her four-legged fur kids, constantly spoiling them. She leaves behind her little red dachshund, Dee, to spread more of Mom's love. Whenever a beautiful hanging basket catches your eye, Mom is probably close by.
She was preceded in death by her parents, her husband, William E. "Billy" Scott, and three brothers, Edwin L. Dennis Jr., Jack M. Dennis, and James "Jim" L. Dennis.
