Kathy Lee Scott

Kathy Lee Scott, 67, died unexpectedly on June 23, 2020 in Delaware Ohio. Kathy was born on July 2, 1952 in Austin Texas, the daughter of Littleton and Ruby Scott.

Kathy graduated from Robertson High School in Las Vegas, New Mexico and went on to receive both an undergraduate and Masters degree from Highlands University, also in Las Vegas, New Mexico. Kathy spent almost 30 years as a guidance counselor, dedicating her life to improving the lives of her students and helping them succeed. She joined the counseling staff at Thomas Worthington High School, serving as their department chair for many years, and was tireless in her efforts. Even following her retirement in 2018, Kathy kept busy organizing and managing various events and volunteering with local senior citizens. Nothing brought Kathy as much joy in life as fishing, gardening, cooking, singing, and playing her guitar.

Kathy was happily married to William “Bill” Blake on August 5, 2006 who was her partner in life for almost 14 years at the time of her death.

Kathy was preceded in death by her mother, Ruby Otto Scott.

She is survived by her sons Robin (Krista Richey) King and his son Alex Murray, Mark (Lynette) King and their son Preston, her step-daughter Deirdre (Merle) Crutchfield III, and their sons Merle and Nathan, her step-son Randy (Julian) Bennett King, her father Littleton (Karin) Scott, her two brothers Tom (Debbie) King and Bob Scott, Bill’s children Jennifer (Colin) Monahan and their son Everett and William (Sarah) Blake and their children Vivian, Evelyn, and Farrall.
