Anne Elizabeth Simington Scott

April 22, 2017

Anne Elizabeth Simington Scott, 104, of Williamsburg VA passed away peacefully Friday, April 14, 2017 in Williamsburg VA.  She was born November 4, 1912 in the old stone house at Simington Farm, just west of Mooresburg, Montour County, PA, the first child and eldest daughter of the late William McClanathan and Alice B. Bower Simington.  

She was married for 57 ˝ years to Dr. Ralston D. Scott who preceded her in death on March 2, 1999.  They were married September 1, 1941 on the front porch of the Simington family homestead in Mooresburg PA. 

She graduated from Danville High School in 1931 and from Hood College in Frederick MD with a Bachelor’s Degree in Social Work in 1935.  Her employment included working at Presbyterian Hospital in Philadelphia for five years, worked as a social worker for an adoption agency, and a home care agency.  Anne also worked in Illinois placing children in adoptive homes from an orphanage run by a small mid-western denomination called “The Christian Church”.  While there, she got involved with unwed mothers who were willing to put their babies up for adoption through the agency.  She even went to court with the girls to see the legal work fully complied with.  She continued doing this until she retired.

 Wherever Anne lived, she was actively involved in the Daughters of the American Revolution where she served as Regent for two local Chapters.  Everywhere she and her husband moved, they joined the local Presbyterian Church which they attended and supported faithfully.  When women first became eligible for offices in the denomination, Anne was elected Deacon in the Edwardsville Presbyterian Church in Illinois.  In Williamsburg, she continued to be active in her church women’s circle as long as she was able to get there.  She also volunteered at FISH, a church related food and clothing exchange for folks in need. 

Anne had such a compassionate and selfless heart for so many people evidenced by her volunteer work with Brownies and volunteering at local thrift shops.  She served patiently as her husband’s primary caregiver when her husband’s health started to deteriorate, dedicating herself completely to his needs 

After retirement and while still healthy, she and her husband took numerous trips in the US and abroad to such places as England, Wales, France, Germany, Italy, Russia, China, Australia and New Zealand.  They spent winters in Florida, Hawaii and Mexico. 

 She is survived by one son, William, of Richmond VA and one daughter, Linda, and her husband, Randy W. Hackenburg of Boiling Springs PA.  Also surviving are two grandchildren; Elizabeth Ann Graham and her husband Craig of Williston ND and Scott Hackenburg and his wife Cora of Richmond VA.  She is also survived by two great-grandchildren; Elliot V. Graham and Justin Hackenburg.  Also surviving are two brothers; David Simington and Paul Simington along with two sisters; Mary Johnson and Martha Cole.  In addition to her husband, she was preceded in death by two brothers; William Bower Simington and Joseph Oakley Simington.  

Relatives and friends are invited to attend a Graveside Service to be held Friday, May 12 2017 at 11:00 AM at Odd Fellows Cemetery 1402 Bloom Road Danville PA with the Reverend John Shaw officiating.  The family will provide flowers. Memorial Contributions may be made to Mooresburg Presbyterian Church 9 Church Drive Danville PA  17821.
