Margaret Catherine Scott

Margaret Catherine Scott, 73, passed away November 6, 2020, at St. Francis Hospital with her two daughters close by. Margaret lived up to her Scottish Warrior roots and her strength was admired by those who knew her well.

Margaret was a loving mother, grandmother, sister, aunt and friend. She was born in Scotland and came to the United States with her childhood sweetheart and husband, Andrew Scott.

Margaret loved, supported and did an amazing job raising her two daughters and six grandchildren. She put her family first and was always available to provide them a listening and supportive ear, followed by smiles, hugs and kisses. She was resilient beyond measure and taught her family members to never give up. She loved gardening, doing household chores, going on road adventures, spending time with and creating wonderful memories with her family and sweet dog, Holmes. She would often load up her big red van and take off for afternoons at the beach with her grandchildren. She was a hero to her daughters and grandchildren and her legacy will live on through them.

She is survived by her two daughters, Tanya Wanchena of Federal Way, WA and Tara Rodriguez of Tacoma, WA; Sons-in-Law, Mel Longley and Timothy Wanchena; grandchildren, Ryon Wanchena, Haleigh Wanchena, Makenzie Wanchena, Nicolas Varela, Brandon Varela, Katie Varela, Katrina Longley and Angelica (Ty) Baylis and six great-granchildren; brother, Patrick Butler; dog, Holmes and many wonderful nieces and nephews in Scotland, Canada and England.
